On May 2, 2020, Rotarians across the globe participated in Rotary International's "COVID-19 #RotaryResponds Telethon to raise critical funds for disaster response. This Facebook Live event was simulcast on the Rotary International Facebook page with the goal to raise funds for grants so local Rotary clubs could accomplish COVID-19 community projects.

The #RotaryResponds Telethon raised over $525,000 USD, enough to fund at least 21 grants toward Rotary club COVID-19 related efforts around the world.  Thanks to everyone who participated and donated!
 
A video showcasing some of our Houston-area Rotary clubs will be featured.  District 5890 here in the greater Houston area was one of only a few videos shown in the telethon!  CLICK HERE TO WATCH VIDEO!
Rotary’s 1.2 million members across the globe have taken swift action to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. More than $3.4 million in Rotary Disaster Response Grants have already been put into action on the front lines to battle COVID-19.
 
Additionally, millions more have been raised by our #PeopleofAction - they have responded quickly and are truly saving lives. Now, we need to do more and the need for additional funding is a priority.
 
Everyone that joined the #RotaryResponds Telethon event heard stories of hope, inspiration and gratitude from Rotarians, Rotaractors and friends of Rotary from across the globe.  Clubs shared what they've done, and plan to do, to help their communities. The telethon also showcased how Rotary's polio eradication infrastructure, PolioPlus, is helping to combat COVID-19.
