the right decision, and change the world.
The raindrops began to pound on us. We were at the
Salvation Army drop off site, at the conclusion day
of the Hurricane Donations drive, which we as students
initiated and organized. One by one we gathered to form
a line, connecting the cars to the building, passing
on our collected goods. The rain came down heavier and
many of us were freezing
was soon forgotten
because we were all surrounded
by uncontrollable joy and laughter. Being a part of
it made me feel like I was on top of the world.
Project Rotary: Challenge
To the world you may be just one person, but
to one person you may just be the world. My name
is Clarence Cheung and I am a student at Carnegie Mellon
University. You are receiving this letter because you
are invited to participate in shaping what will soon
be one of the most influential organizations on campus.
The Rotaract Clubthe college division of the Rotary
Internationalis soon to be a chartered organization

For those of you who are not familiar with Rotary International,
the club is a non-profit organization comprised of business
leaders from around the world, with clubs spanning from
Pittsburgh to Hong Kong and from Italy to Australia.
It currently has over a million members armed with the
motto service above self and the goal to
improve the community and the world. One of the major
projects of the Rotary International is Polio Plus,
which seeks to eradicate the poliovirus worldwide by
the year 2000. In addition, the Foundation provides
academic scholarships and funding for some 1200 students
to study aboard every year.
Furthermore, the Rotary is a gateway to business opportunities.
With its network of business leaders from around the
world, this connection could be the stepping-stone to
your future career.
Three lawyers with the intention to foster friendship
and community improvement first founded the Rotary International.
The goal of the CMU Rotaract Club is very similar. Speaking
on behalf of the Rotary Clubs of Pittsburgh and the
already involved students of the CMU community, I would
like to ask you to give a helping hand in setting the
foundation of the Rotaract Club. There are leaders and
there are followers which would you like to be?
