PDG Willard Martin, Chair D9920 Foundation Committee  challenges you to donate $100 to End Polio.
Please read the attached Flyer which gives us five good reasons to eradicate Polio. To do this Rotary needs your help.
I have today donated $100 to Polio and I challenge the members of District 9920 to do likewise.
Every $100 donated is matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and becomes $300 and  the Gates Foundation have committed support up to $50 million per year for the next three years.
And before you read anymore remember that your $100 donation qualifies for a 33% tax rebate! So your net $67 donation generates $300 which is a great return as the global investment in a Polio Free World will reach $40 to $50 billion within the next 20 years.
Select one of the three easy ways to donate -
·        Direct to Peter Wilcocks, District Rotary Foundation Administrator, ph. 027 285 1763
Internet banking account 02-0256-0333474-00. Confirm by email to
·        Clubs with Central Billing can collect the donations from their members, and forward the list of members who donated and one payment from the Club to Peter Wilcocks, see 1 above.
·        At District Conference donate by cash or credit card – forms for receipts will be available.
This email has the full support of DG Ingrid Waugh who has also made her $100 donation.
Finally,  I  wish to personally thank you for your support for this District Giving Challenge.
