This animated video premiered at Rotary International's annual convention June 26, 2013. It tells the story of Paul, a Rotarian who used social media to raise money, attract members, and generate news coverage about his project.
Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders who dedicate their time and talent to tackle the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects
1.2 million members from more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work impacts lives at both the local and international levels, from helping families in need in their own communities to
working toward a polio-free world. Rotary also offers expanded service opportunities including :
Interact : a service organization organized and sponsored by Rotary clubs for young adults aged 12. There are more than 12,300 Interact clubs in 133 countries.
The world is 99% polio-free thanks to Rotary and its global partners. Now, notable figures and celebrities around the world—Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Itzak Perlman, Queen Noor of Jordan, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Jackie Chan—are joining Rotary to build awareness that we're "This Close" to ending polio.
