Congratulations to each club, and each member, in our Rotary 5280 District! Through the combined efforts of everyone in our District, we have almost $18,000 in donations contributed to individual Polio Plus accounts during this spring 2016 drive. We have shown the solidarity of our District Rotarians in their efforts to honor the workers and security officers that were killed during the past 27 months in Pakistan that were giving polio immunizations to finish the job of eliminating polio forever. We are likely the first District in the world to accomplish this large scope of donations from every Rotarian in our District for Polio Plus in one Rotary year. Congratulations for moving this terrible Tragedy in Pakistan to Triumph of eliminating polio forever by your personal support and contributions!
-Shirley Giltzow, District 5280 , Polio Plus Chair
Giving to The Rotary FoundationThe Rotary Foundation provides hope, health, and peace around the world. So much good begins with these gifts: wells are constructed, children are vaccinated against illness, senior citizens are afforded meals and services, children and adults are educated and given professional opportunities. This work is vital to the children, families, and communities who benefit. Only when people’s basic needs are met, can they pursue the larger elements of human life including conflict resolution, community building, and peace.Paul Harris FellowA Paul Harris Fellow is someone who contributes (or in whose name is contributed using Foundation recognition points), a gift of US$1,000 or more cumulatively to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or an approved global grant.Becoming a Paul Harris Fellow is a tremendous accomplishment and honor as these contributions impact communities around the world. Paul Harris Fellows, in a very tangible way, provide stepping stones to a more harmonious world.
