In 1970, Murray and Margaret Dryden founded Sleeping Children Around the World to provide bedkits to children who had no bed to sleep on.
It was a great honour to have Dave Dryden, son of Murray and Margaret, speak to our club on March 27 2018 and give us an idea of how SCAW has progressed. From one bedkit in 1970 to over 1.6 million in 2018 it has been quite a story. For a simple donation of C$35 a bedkit will be provided to a child in need. The kits are sourced in the countries where they are distributed, thus providing income for local small businesses. It is a "Win-Win".
The full donation of C$35 goes to the production of the bedkit. Volunteers and income from a legacy left by Murray and Margaret cover the administration.
What a great project !
If you or someone you know is having trouble thinking of a gift for someone, how about giving a bedkit in their name. They will receive a photo of the recipient receiving their kit.
Just contact http://www.scaw.org to make your donation.
This project is supported by Rotary Clubs around the world.

At our regular meeting on Nov 27 we were honoured to have Steve Foran drop in to speak briefly about "gratitude".
Too often we forget to look at our lives and realize how lucky we are to have achieved what we have and where we are. There are so many things to be grateful for. Our family, our friends and the fact we live in Canada to name just a few. By being grateful, we become positive. By being positive we influence others to become so and to appreciate what they have.
Check the link above and see if Steve can help you open your heart and be grateful.

Acts of Kindness
It takes only one person to bring happiness to another. The members of the Eclub of Atlantic Canada decided that in this, the 150 Birthday of Canada, we would bring the spirit of happiness to 150 people. Our members have been “Paying it Forward” by keeping track of small acts of kindness that they perform during their normal daily activities. This can be buying someone a coffee, taking the time to speak to a homeless person or a senior who needs someone to talk to, or helping someone get something off a top shelf at the supermarket. It does not take much to bring a smile and a ‘thank you’ from someone you do not know and it just may make their day.
Since inception of this idea on May 15 2017 we have performed 159 acts of kindness.
