Well-known philanthropist Dick Smith has announced his donation of $1 million towards alleviating the suffering of Australians in need. Dick joins the likes of world-renowned philanthropist Bill Gates as a major supporter of Rotary and its various programs worldwide. Dick highlighted the fact he considers Rotary one of the most trusted and respected charities in the world, and thus his choice to assist him in providing support for Australians suffering personal hardship due to accident, illness or misadventure.
The funds will be distributed via a specific Rotary program developed for the cause, administered by the Rotary Australia Benevolent Society (RABS), with eligibility criteria determined by Dick and Pip Smith. RABS has previously assisted Wayne Greenhalgh, Sharon Chan and numerous other Australians victimised by domestic violence, disease and poverty. - See more at: http://rotarydistrict9800.com.au/news/21923/dick-smith-donates-1million-for-rotary-to-continue-their-work-in-australia/?no_follow=1#sthash.t9HnoR1z.dpufRead more...
