Chandigarh, 21 May (Pooja Goyal):
WGM is the way to unite Rotarians in a common cause while making a difference by raising funds to end polio. Rotarians, friends of Rotary, Rotaractors, Interactors, Inner wheel, anyone and everyone can join a meal and at the same time raise funds for end polio now. “Each $10 you donate becomes $30 with the bill &melinda gates foundation and that funds up to 50 VACCINES”. It may be a frugal meal, it could be a club meal where donations are made, in fact just a meal where people meet and give money for end polio now. Mostly people join to have fun and enjoy themselves and at the same time help save children from polio. As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, all children — wherever they live — remain at risk. The stakes are that high.” Bill Gates
