Polio Plus: It May Seem Far Away – But We are “This Close!”
Posted: 4/15/2014 12:00:00 AM Source: D Gryniewicz

The Rotary Club of Celebration fully supports  the Rotary International Project that affects every person in every country worldwide. Thirty years ago, the Rotary Clubs around the world began working to eradicate Polio from the face of the earth.  When the project was proposed, members in the meeting chuckled.  It was a daunting task and the desired end result seemed so far away.  But – we are Rotarians, and despite the fact that throughout history only one other disease, Small Pox, had been eradicated, Rotarians were up to the task. 

Now, thirty years later 2.5 BILLION children have been inoculated partly due to the dedicated fundraising and service efforts of Rotarians. In 1985, there were 350,000 cases of polio worldwide and 125 countries were polio endemic. In 2013, a total of 407 polio cases were reported and only Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria remain polio endemic.

We are “this close” to reaching a goal, that in 1985 seemed like a dream.  We are “this close” to ending Polio – and when we do, no child anywhere in the world will have to suffer from this debilitating disease again.

The time is NOW, for the big push to END POLIO. Our efforts affect far more than just three countries – they affect the health of the world. This is not a project that any of us can allow to linger. This is not a project we can be lax about – or leave to others to complete.  No one gets that message any clearer than Bill and Melinda Gates. Through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, every dollar raised will be matched with two additional dollars.

The Rotary Club of Celebration is participating in the Southlake Dragon Boat Festival on May 3rd to raise funds and increase awareness of the End Polio Now! Project.

You can help us by identifying just 5 people from your family, friends, neighbors and/or professional organizations who might consider donating $10 to $25 to the Polio Plus Project. Send them an email asking them to go to

https://www.rotary.org/en/end-polio. Click on the yellow “Give Now” button.  Select the Polio Plus Fund and click on the Polio Plus radio button.  Enter the amount of the donation.  Enter billing information and please, click on Gift Options. Credit to the Rotary Club of Celebration.   Finish by entering credit card information. Remember, if you donate $10, it becomes $30 through the matching funds offered by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  Help us maximize the benefit of this opportunity as we work together to eradicate polio.

Thank you.  Your donations will help protect every citizen of the world from the paralyzing effects of polio.

The Southlake Dragon Boat Festival will be held on May 3 at Waterfront Park in downtown Clermont from 8am to 4 pm.  Come out for the food, festival, health fair and races.
