Here's an easy and effective way for every Club to reach out to your wider community to raise funds and awareness for End Polio Now.
At the same time you will be reminding the public of Rotary's central role in the effort to Conquer Polio.
Only launched in 2012 we’ve already raised around £300,000 (US$500,000) for End Polio Now.
Fabric crocus buttonholes are offered to members of the public in return for a donation. When donors wear their Crocuses they become walking adverts.
Each Crocus comes on an information card which tells the story of the eradication programme and Rotary's pivotal role in it. It provides the wearer with the
answer to the question 'that's a nice flower, what's it for?'
The Crocus was chosen as the purple colour matched the dye painted on the fingers of children who have been immunised.
