Regular Meeting – Speaker Jamie Amelio, “Staying Bothered”
December 19 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join us to hear from Jamie Amelio, founder of Caring for Cambodia. Her talk will be about “Staying Bothered”
Jamie C. Amelio is the founder and CEO of Caring for Cambodia (CFC), a non-profit that has dramatically changed the lives of tens of thousands of Cambodian children. CFC started in 2003 with the goal to provide Cambodian children education by building a school in the Siem Reap area. That initial goal of one school has grown into 21 schools and 6,600+ students annually with a mission to secure a better, brighter future for so many more.
Jamie is a four-time recipient of the prestigious Golden Hand Service Award bestowed by the Cambodian government to those who give outstanding service to the Cambodian community. She received the award for Outstanding Community Leader in 2015 and the Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2011 from the Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce, and was named as a 2010 Classic Woman of the Year by Traditional Home Magazine.
Jamie is the author of several books and is the orator of a TEDx Talk, Be Bothered, Stay Bothered, where she reveals the secret to staying motivated to make a difference.
Jamie and her husband, Bill, live in Austin and have six children, including two from Cambodia, and one grandson, all of whom understand the importance of “Being Orange” and “Staying Bothered”.
Jamie will speak to the Austin Cosmopolitan Rotary Club on Dec 19 about Staying Bothered, a global movement she founded that helps people find what bothers them the most, motivates them to get involved, and provides them with the tools to stay committed to affect real, positive change.
