Do Something Near YouIn October 2011, Do Something! launched the DoSomethingNearYou.com.au web site. The aim of the site is to make it easier for people to volunteer and help community organisations and community events within their local area.
Lions have helped enormously with this web site. Lions were the first national organisation to offer support. As such, all 1260 Lions Clubs are listed on the site. Our wish is not to just help Lions Australia attract new members, but also to support Lions initiatives and actions within your local community.
This is why we are writing to you. We would like to involve your Lions Club more directly in the project.
Many Lions Clubs have already noticed the member enquiries that they''''''''''''''''ve been getting as a result of the web site and our promotion for it. As an example, we have promoted Lions Clubs in the DoSomethingNearYou adverts that have appeared in over 10 million ALDI catalogues.
Lions Australia has the opportunity to become the main official partner for DoSomethingNearYou.com.au. This would involve significant branding for Lions Club on the DoSomethingNearYou web site.
However, to do that on a national scale, your club needs to become involved. Here''''''''s what you can do:
We would like members of your Lions Club to become DoSomethingNearYou Ambassadors within your local community. This will generate additional profile for your Lions Club in your local newspaper and could improve your relationships with local community groups. This in turn will hopefully increase membership within your club.
We would be grateful if you could approach and work with your local council to ensure that all your local community organisations and community events are listed on the site.
We would like you to meet with local community groups to ensure that they are listed on the DoSomethingNearYou site. By carrying out this role, your club will strengthen its relationships with local community organisations. It will also identify new projects that you can be involved with and could identify new leaders and members for your club.
If community groups in your area do not have the computer resources to register themselves on the DoSomethingNearYou web site, are there people within your Lions Club who could register them on to the site This process is simple and is not time consuming.
Finally, we would like you to register your Lions Club on to DoSomethingNearYou.com.au. Once you register your Lions Club, you can add, edit and change information about your club and how you appear on the site. All at no cost.
In order find and contact you, all that people in your local area will have to do is type in their postcode at DoSomethingNearYou.com.au (this site is localised to all 565 local councils areas around Australia)
We recommend that you appoint a member to undertake or coordinate this important initiative in your area.
Of course, the choice of participating is entirely up to your club, but with the combined force of 1260 Lions Clubs and DoSomethingNearYou.com.au, we can deliver major benefits for local communities all around Australia. By making it easier for people to volunteer in their local community, we can encourage many more people to give back and volunteer on a scale that has not yet been seen in Australia.
Indeed, Lynne Dalton, the CEO of Volunteering NSW has called DoSomethingNearYou.com.au
The Lions Council of Governors and the team here at Do Something! are looking forward to this exciting new chapter for both our organisations. We would welcome your individual club on board to play your part and help us to achieve this positive outcome for your local community.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either of us on Lions@DoSomethingNearYou.com.au
