Interact is a club for young people ages 12-18 who want to join together to tackle the issues in their community that they care most about. Every Interact club carries out two service projects a year: one that helps their school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Clubs meet at least twice a month and are sponsored by their local Rotary club.
 
The Interact Club at Manhasset High School took on the challenge of raising $5,000 at the start of the school year in September 2014.
 
They sold pizza, bracelets, did holiday gift wrapping at Lord and Taylor, and delivered holiday messages among other fundraising activities in order to donate to Save A Child. That child turned out to be thirteen year old Tatiana Romanova from Ulyanovsk, Russia. She and her mother, Svetlana, arrived in the United States for the first time on Saturday, April 25th. In fact, it was their first trip ever by pla
 
Both mother and daughter are overwhelmed with gratitude by the outpouring of support and care they have received from total strangers. Tatiana's scheduled for heart surgery on May 6, 2015 at St. Francis Hospital in nearby Roslyn, New York.
