Foundation Minute for the week of May 30th
 
A unique way to promote Rotary and help support The Rotary Foundation is to carry a Rotary International credit card.  Just by using it you’ll be helping the Foundation “do good in the world”!
 
A portion of each purchase you make will be returned to the Foundation at no additional cost to you.  The Foundation received more than $8.6 million from the program since it was launched in 2000 including $3.6 million to support polio eradication.  In the US a royalty of 0.25% is paid on all purchases made with the card.  Outside the US, the royalty percentage fluctuates from 0.05 – 0.35%.
 
The Foundation is not only the one that benefits.  As a card carrier you enjoy 1% cash back on every purchase and 2% cash back at grocery stores and 3% cash back on gas for the first $1500 in combined purchases in those categories each quarter.  Bank of America donates $75 toward polio eradication with every activated account.
 
For information click onto Bank of America – Apply and refer to the disclosures accompanying the online credit application. 
 
Thank you for supporting The Rotary Foundation.

He offered a message of gratitude: “Rotarians do remarkable work around the world,” Ban told the thousands of attendees gathered at KINTEX, the Korea International Exhibition and Convention Center in Goyang city, on the outskirts of Seoul. “You help the United Nations reach our goals, and you help the world understand the United...
Global movement needed to reverse water crisis
This year's World Water Summit on 27 May in Seoul highlighted the progress being made: Over the last 25 years, more than 2.5 billion people gained access to improved drinking water, and 2 billion who didn't have adequate sanitation now do. Child deaths from water-related diseases dropped from 1.5 million to just over 600,000. The UN Millennium Development Goals' target for clean drinking water was met five years ahead of schedule. But for the 1.8 billion people whose drinking water remains contaminated and the 2.4 billion without access to proper sanitation, progress is still too slow, said...

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...
