A Round For Polio

January 4, 2009

The Bennington Rotary Club is holding a fundraiser to help meet the Gates Foundation Challenge. The Gates Challenge consists of a multi million dollar donations to Rotary International to help eradicate the world of the Polio Virus.

Each Rotary Club around the world in 200 countries has each pledged to raise $3000. each to help match the Gates Foundation donation. Rotary international and the World Health Organization believe this final push will eradicate the disease. Polio only currently exists in four countries; Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, and Nigeria.

Our fundraiser will be running on March until May and ending on May 13, 2009. During this time Bennington Rotary Members and friends will be calling on businesses and friends and asking for a small tax deductible donations - whatever they can afford. Any and every donation amount, small or large will help us reach our club local goal of $3000. and our worldwide goal of $100 million.

If you are not contacted by a friend who is in Rotary and would like to help out, you can send a donation check to:

Bennington Rotary Club
PO Box 24
Bennington, VT 05201

Please reference Polio Plus in the check’s memo.
