Polio Fundraiser

As part of our 85th Anniversary, Richardson Rotary is raising $1,000 to further the eradication of polio. Help us by purchasing a $35 yard sign that raises awareness and donates $25 to Polio Plus. Signs may be purchased at a club meeting or via the website under Pay by credit card in the GIVE section.
 
Polio Poster
 
Rotary International has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years. Its goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.
 
Polio cases have been reduced by 99.9 percent since the first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by governments to contribute more than $10 billion to the effort.
 
Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
