Polio Plus Update – From Your Chairs

Polio Plus

Hi all!

At last week’s Thursday meeting–PolioPlus’s first!–we discussed this semester’s plans and now have TASKS to be accomplished!

PLEASE READ the minutes [at the Google Group ] to better understand our plans and what needs to be done and SIGN-UP for the tasks you are most interested in through the Google doc.

WE WILL NEED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU TO HELP FOR POLIOPLUS TO SUCCEED THIS YEAR.

If anything, please drop by the Rotaract table on Sproul to help flyer or at least tell your friends about the international polio issue and spread awareness that this is NOT a problem that will simply disappear.

Or, even better, get out there and make an announcement in each of your classes (with your instructor’s permission!) about PolioPlus, the texting initiative, and Purple Pinkie Week (April 6 – 10). If possible, try to chalk the following message onto your classrooms’ boards:

“END POLIO NOW! Text “polio” to 90999 to donate $5 to Rotary International’s PolioPlus (a one-time charge) 60 CENTS SAVES A LIFE! -> calrotaract.org”

Remember why we are doing this, and please don’t hesitate to e-mail polioplus@calrotaract.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Stay tuned for our next meeting time, and JOIN THE FACEBOOK Group & GOOGLE Group!


Your Polio Plus Committee Chairs,

Ami Chiu & Richard Lan
