The Traveling Polio Shirt or Where’s Polio?
Objective: Create a fun way to draw awareness to the last thrust to eradicate Polio in the world.
History: I won the Polio Plus Polo shirt, with Mother Teresa dropping Polio Vaccine drops in a child’s mouth, in a District 5030 (Washington State in the U.S.) auction.
This shirt can continue to make money for Polio Plus by drawing awareness throughout the world that Polio is still a threat until completely eradicated, so it needs to be passed on.
Instructions: If you receive the shirt, please put your name, club, and district number on the shirt. Have a picture taken of you receiving the shirt and post it on the Traveling Polio Shirt Facebook Page. Now either give it to your District Governor for them to send it to another country or send it to a Rotarian that you may know in another country.
Objective: Let’s see how many countries we can send it to. Make your club and District Governor aware that you received the shirt and that your country is Polio free because Rotary cared.
It is time to give one last time, whatever you can, to rid the rest of the world of this disease that destroys lives. Maybe have one last “pennies for Polio” fundraiser at your club meetings, and send the proceeds to Polio Plus.
