The Purple Crocus goes International

Fabric flowers – such as Remembrance Poppies and Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Daffodil – are well established in the UK as a charity fundraising and advocacy tool. The idea of crocus buttonholes was started by Lynn Mitchell, when she was DG of District 1120 in 2011-12.  Lynn trialed 25,000 crocus buttonholes in around half the RIBI districts for Rotary Day 2012, and they proved a great success, raising over £25,000.  For Rotary Day 2013 that number has increased to 150,000 with the aim of raising over £150,000. Better still, the Crocus Campaign is becoming a global phenomenon. It is now being trialled and test marketed all over the world, from Canada and Nigeria to the US and Brazil.  
The Rotary Crocus Campaign has the target of raising £15 million a year by 2015.It sounds a lot, and it is, but it’s not difficult to achieve if everyone works together.  After all, great goals are achieved by small efforts made by many.  All it would take would be for each Rotarian around the world to wear a crocus, make a donation and encourage a few of their family, friends and colleagues to do the same.  And the more people who are involved, the easier the task becomes – more details from the Crocus Team - Mike Parry via mjparry111@hotmail.com, Lynn via lynnjmitchell@hotmail.co.uk or David Price via rotarycrocus@gmail.com
