IMAGINE” A WORLD WITHOUT POLIO!
ELEVEN WEEKS & COUNTING TOWARD ERADICTION
 
Holiday Greetings Polio Warriors!  Here’s great Polio Eradication News as we round the corner of being halfway through this Rotary year: There have been NO NEW CASES OF WILD POLIO VIRUS TYPE 1 ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD FOR THE LAST ELEVEN WEEKS!!!
  • Share this amazing progress with your fellow Rotarians and this great news:
 75 – The number of days since the last case of WPV1 occurred in Pakistan (September 15th)
  91 – The number of days since the last case of WPV1 occurred in Afghanistan (August 29th)
110 – The number of days since the last case of WPV1 occurred in Mozambique (August 10th)
375 – The number of days since the last case of WPV1 occurred in Malawi (November 19, 2021)
  • Be sure to check out our monthly “COUNTDOWN TO HISTORY” below as Rotary works hand in hand with the Gates Foundation and the GPEI  to End Polio by 2026!
 
To make that happen every Rotarian can help by continuing your support of Rotary’s #1 Priority by spreading the messaging about the importance of ending Polio and providing your donations to Polio Plus.It is also great news that as the first half of the Rotary Year comes to a close, our District 5710 Clubs have already donated close to 50% of our annual Polio Goal!
 
More of our clubs than ever before have stepped up to meet Past RI President John Germ’s $1500 Goal Challenge with creative and innovative Polio Plus Fundraising events. If your club has not yet set its Polio Plus Goal – It’s not too late to go to Club Central and input your Club’s
 
Goal for what ever you can decide – No matter how large or how small – Please set a Goal.
 
And it’s still not too late to join the Polio Plus Society, whereby you commit to donating a minimum of $100 per year, every year until Polio is gone, you can become a Member of the District 5710 Polio Plus Society and receive a handsome Polio Plus Society Pin. Many Rotarians choose the "recurring" option, whereby you donate a little bit each month, as little as $10 per month. The Commitment Form is on the district website. 

Thank you for your dedication to this, Rotary's #1 Priority, and the promise we made to children everywhere...a polio free world.
 
And “We are…This Close” as shown in our “Countdown to History”
HAS YOUR CLUB MET ITS DONATION GOAL FOR 22/23?
