A birthday gift to help end polio


February 23, 2013 BY Peter Yeo

rotary birthdayToday marks a special day for one of Shot@Life’s valuable partners. February 23 is the 108th anniversary of the founding meeting of Rotary International. The world’s first service club began with just four members; today, Rotary International claims a membership of 1.2 million with over 32,000 clubs across the world.

Rotary International’s PolioPlus program, started in 1985, has raised over $1 billion dollars and inspired policymakers to take concrete steps to stop the crippling effects of this deadly disease. Thanks in part to the tireless advocacy of Rotary, we have reduced polio cases worldwide by 99 percent. Rotary has set the standard for service for 108 years; I hope that it continues doing so for the next 108.

In honor of this remarkable organization’s birthday, you can take action to help end polio once and for all. In the 113th Congress, our elected officials need to know the power of cost-effective vaccines in helping give every child a shot at a healthy life.

Email your representatives in Washington now and ask them to make polio eradication and global vaccines a priority this Congress. We can't afford to wait.

The inspiring work of 1.2 million members of Rotary clubs around the world has brought global attention to the importance of vaccines in ending polio. As an individual, you too have the power to help make positive, lasting global change.

Make history with Rotary as they celebrate their 108th birthday by contacting your representatives right now. Together, we can achieve the eradication of polio in our lifetimes.

That's why I chose the bounty hunter. the pictures came out fantastic, color was right on , everyone who see's them love them , I'm not sure if mat would look better I recommend supplementing the 4th here with the single disc issue from '89, assuming you can still find it used. www.bk-convention2014.eu Miraculous cream! I can't vouch for it as a diaper cream (only have used it for myself), but it works incredibly well. Tim Burton returned to his stop-motion greatness is this great romantic fantasy. The toy is in accordance to the description on site. Also, because the hair comes out at the root, the little follicle can make the hair stick to the side of the head, but the brush is great for that. I've had some root canal work lately and am very phobic when it comes to shots. This book is written is short, Hemingway, get to the point sentences. Cholesterol Level.
