1. Because we are about to eradicate a disease, and you can be a part of it.

We are 99.9 percent of the way toward ending polio with just five cases reported as of May 2017. As Rotary and our partners work to eradicate the polio virus in Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the remaining endemic countries, we also continue immunization campaigns in other high-risk countries to ensure the disease remains gone for good. Follow End Polio Now on Facebook and Twitter and share the story of polio eradication with your social networks. And donate now; your contribution will be matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting.
