We are pleased to invite you to participate in a COVID-19 #Rotary Responds one-hour Telethon to raise critical funds for disaster response.  This Facebook Live event will be simulcast on the Rotary International Facebook page. The goal is to raise more than $1 million dollars (the link is now live).
Rotary's 1.2 million members across the globe have taken swift action to respond to the COVID 19 pandemic.  More than $3.4 million in Rotary Disaster Response Grants have already been put into action on the front lines to battle COVID 19.  Additionally, millions more have been raised by our #PeopleofAction -- they have responded quickly and are truly saving lives.  Now, we need to do more and the need for additional funding is a priority.
Join this live event to hear stories of hope, inspiration and graditude from Rotarians, Rotaractors and friends of Rotary from across the globe as they share what they are doing to help their communities.  The Telethon will also showcase how our polio eradication infrastructure is helping to combat COVID 19.    The live stream will be simulcast in eight languages.  Share this event and spread the word through your social media channels.   Invite your friends and family and members of your community to watch and see first-hand what Rotary's People of Action are doing to combat COVID 19.    When posting, use hashtag "RotaryResponds.  Lastly, encourage everyone to donate!
