I work for Category 6, a speaker’s bureau in Seattle, Washington. Our founder, Shari Storm, has been a Rotarian since 2006. She is also the program chair for her club and has presented to over 150 clubs across the country.
Like many clubs, her club recently moved to online meetings. Finding a speaker who is great at Zoom or Webex, can be a bit of a hurdle. I wanted to reach out and give you the name of a person we work with who is
1. Great at online presenting
2. Has a unique and timely topic
John Lanza has been helping credit unions provide financial education to their members for several years. He recently published a book called The Art of Allowance.
As an unprecedented amount of people find themselves temporarily unemployed, or with reduced income, a tricky question arises – how do you talk to your kids about financial hardship? If your income is gone, what happens to their allowance? How can you turn this completely unexpected turn of events into a life-long learning moment for your kids?
Would you be interested in having John speak to your club about this important topic?

Determined: The Story of Holocaust Survivor Avraham Perlmutter
I share the inspirational life story of my father, Holocaust survivor Dr. Avraham Perlmutter, who outwitted the Nazis and overcame every obstacle standing in his way. But more than just a remarkable story of survival, his tale is a testament to human kindness, even in the darkest of hours, and to the achievements made possible through relentless perseverance. His story has been shared via his #1 bestselling autobiography, my award-winning documentary on his life, and through the talks I have given to thousands of people at schools, museums, and other venues.

In my presentation , I share how that was possible with research based couple relationship knowledge, understanding of how children's skills increase and how adult's decrease as the disease progresses, and most important with love and appreciation for the challenge Mike faced. .
My presentation ends with "Some Good News."

|Dan Perez||Shield 4 Kids|
Shield 4 Kids provides backpacks to Police, Sheriffs, DCFS so that at the time abused kids are removed from their homes and placed in emergency protective custody and dropped off at a temporary foster home, they have a customized child appropriate care package filled with toiletries and clothing needed as they transition homes, as well as some toys, games, books, etc. This package serves as a shield for children to feel ownership of something that is completely theirs and that they can take joy in. Shield 4 Kids also provides excursions to separated siblings who only see each other on court dates.

Shield 4 Kids' mission of providing hope to abused children as they are removed from their home, and perhaps separated from their siblings, is commendable and a worthy project for Rotary Clubs to participate in.
