Make Polio History

Rotary Club of Salem is raising $25,000 to help end polio.  Polio is close to being only the second disease to be totally eradicated, but it mutates quickly and spreads easily, so monitoring and vaccination are expensive.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged a 2-to-1 match, so your donation will go even farther.  One child's vaccination is approximately $3, so every little bit helps.

Please help us reach our goal.  Together, we can make polio history.
