HELLO DIVISION 8...    I am very sad to say that this is the last newsletter of Isabela's Inquirer for this service year. I am very glad to have served all of you as your Lieutenant Governor for the past year. Through you, I was able to see how hardworking people are and it inspired me so much to make a difference in the world. I would like to thank all of you for sticking through and doing what you're supposed to. In this newsletter you will last few reminders and promotions before the service year ends. Again, I would like to thank all of you for the opportunity that you have given me and it has been a great pleasure of mine to serve as your Lieutenant Governor, and I hope you continue your journey with Key Club along the way. 

THANK YOU


ADVOCACY FOCUS: TEEN SUICIDE PREVENTION WITH AN EMPHASIS ON BULLYING What is advocacy? Advocacy is speaking on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. What is our Advocacy Focus? This year our advocacy focus is Teen Suicide Prevention with an Emphasis on Bullying. Many people think that this issue is very clichĂŠ. However, this is an issue that must be addressed because it is the third leading cause of death around the world that affects millions of students. What can we do? As the largest student led-organization we can do a lot of things. We can continuously promote to end this issue and inform our peers about this issue. In addition, to help those that are bullied tell them that everything is going to be all right and stand by their side.

ADVOCACY PLEDGE

I, (Your Name), pledge to help raise awareness of teen suicide and bullying. To act as a resource and company for someone who is suffering from mental illness and anyone with suicidal thoughts. To listen without judgement and do anything to keep them safe. To tell a reliable adult if someone discloses that they want to hurt themselves. To refrain from using the words, “I want to kill myself� when I am stressed out. To tell someone if I need help by using my resources. To act when I see someone being bullied. To speak when I am being bullied. I pledge to help cease this problem in our society 5

HALO MOVEMENT As you all know, Key Club International is partnered with Nickelodeon for the HALO movement! HALO stands for helping and leading others, a perfect fit for an organization that inspires kids to take action. This is a great chance to do more service and get more involved. If your club wants to do a service project but is not in a position to fully fund it, your club can apply for the opportunity to receive HALO grant for your service project online at https://wyng.com/campaign/828842 and receive anywhere from $100 - $2,500! Applications will be accepted starting February 1 and are due by April 30, 2018 at 11:59pm. The 10 clubs with the most votes on their public pages, which are created during the application process, get an opportunity to be featured on TV. You can vote once every 24 hours and spread the word to have friends and family do so as well. Madeleine Eichorn, a junior at Hunterdon Central High School, organized a meal-packing project throughout Division 13 of the New Jersey District of Key Club International and her club placed in the top 10 with over 600 votes. They received $1,083, which all went towards food that 70 people in Division 13 packaged into 16,000 meals for the New Jersey Federation of Food Banks. They were dispersed evenly with the help of Helene Meissner, a Zone Administrator for the New Jersey District of Key Club International and the Program Director at NORWESCAP Food Bank. Their experience is one of many, and a list of the additional 2017 HALO Movement Finalists can be found at http://www.wehalo.com/apply-for-a-grant. Join the movement and use the hashtags #WeHALO and #KeyClub on social media.
