World Polio Day & Dr. Jane

EndPolioNow campaign launched by Rotary and supported by Dr. Jane Goodall.

Next week on Wednesday 24th October, Rotary launches “The World’s Biggest Commercial,” promoting the global effort to eradicate this crippling childhood disease.

The interactive campaign gives everyone a chance to join Dr. Jane and other prominent world figures in Rotary’s “This Close” to ending polio campaign.

Participants can upload photos of themselves to Rotary’s polio eradication website, to be edited into the constantly expanding promotional spot, and share a message of support about why we must end polio now.

The campaign launches on on October 24 and a preview video is now available at 

Join this inspiring campaign and be part of the change.
