Every member will be asked to take the Pink Pig for one week. Whenever the Rotarian travels anywhere and someone ask why you are carrying a Pink Pig, they must explain Rotary's End Polio Now program and ask for a donation. Then at the next week's meeting they return the Pink Pig and report how much they have raised for Polio Plus. The member who raises the most will win a RLB T-shirt.

PolioPlus is the most ambitious program in Rotary's history.

PolioPlus is the volunteer arm of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. For more than 25 years, Rotary has led the private sector in the global effort to rid the world of this crippling disease. Today, PolioPlus and its role in the initiative are recognized worldwide as a model of public-private cooperation in pursuit of a humanitarian goal.

Few Facts:
  • 3 remaining endemic countries: Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria
  • only 224 new cases of Polio last year
  • Each vaccine cost only $.60
  • Estimated cost to totally eradicate Polio an additional billion dollars
