Join the fight and send a postcard now!

October 24th is World Polio Day: That’s why we want to draw attention to the poliovirus. Let us take action to create lasting change and raise awareness that polio is a vaccine-preventable disease which can prevent death through polio.

Nevertheless, many children under 5 years are still endangered to get infected, which can cause poliomyelitis. Mostly spread through contaminated water, the virus is still a big problem in Nigeria, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.

Since 1985, Rotary International has led the charge against polio, helping to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries and reducing polio cases by 99.9 percent. But the virus still exists and endangers people worldwide.

Rotary International unites people around the world to take action to create lasting change. Together with Rotary International, MyPostcard created a campaign and postcards to help end the disease for good. For every EndPolio postcard you send, we will donate USD $1 to Rotary’s PolioPlus program. You can send your postcard with MyPostcard and support the fight against the Poliovirus until the 31st of October 2018. Simply use the code ‘ENDPOLIO’. Each sold card is worth a vaccine.

Rotary International has been able to partner with UNICEF, the World Health Organization and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in their fight against polio. All donations will be matched 2-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, increasing our impact and accelerating the progress toward a polio-free world.

We want to help Rotary International to reach their goal: End polio! Join the fight and send a postcard now.
