Brian Thompson District Governor 7070                                                                                           

This year, we're building on the good work we’ve already accomplished with our new theme: "Light Up Rotary!"  ... and we're doing it with energy, passion, and fun!

 
The ingenuity and resourcefulness of Rotarians in this District are matched by their compassion and generosity. I am looking forward to visiting each of the 54 clubs in District 7070 to learn more about how lives are being changed by Rotary service.
 
As we begin our year together, we remember President Gary's lesson from Confucius, whom he calls the world’s first Rotarian: “It is better to light a single candle than to sit and curse the darkness." We can each let our own light shine in Rotary. As we Light Up Rotary together, we'll light up the world.
 
Not a Rotarian? Want to learn more? Check out our website, find the club nearest you and come out to a meeting. Maybe you'll want to join our Rotary family!
 
Yours in Rotary,  Brian

New match arrangement could raise US$525 million for global eradication effort

LISBON, Portugal (25 June 2013) Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation today announced an extension of their existing fundraising partnership that could generate up to US$525 million in new money for polio eradication as the global effort to end this crippling disease enters its critical endgame phase.

Under the new agreement, announced before an audience of more than 20,000 Rotary members from 160 countries gathered in Lisbon for the humanitarian group’s annual convention, the Gates Foundation will match 2 for 1 every new dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication up to $35 million per year through 2018.

This article appeared in the Globe and Mail September 28, 2012 concerning the eradication of polio by 2018 if all goes well. Bill Gates' efforts were the main feature of the fund raising part of the article but it included reference to Rotary International, Wilf Wilkinson and even the Gov't of Canada matching funds raised for this program in Canada.
