In September and October 2014, our very own Rotary Club of Oshawa-Parkwood member, Laura Carey of Laura Carey State Farm Insurance had an idea. She asked everyone to like her new Facebook page Laura Carey State Farm Insurance and she would donate $2 for every LIKE. And all of the money would go to the End Polio Now campaign of The Rotary Foundation to help eradicate polio from the world. 
What a great way to donate to the Rotary Foundation's PolioPlus Campaign. And we did. 

And our course, a big THANK YOU to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. They matched Laura Carey's donation 2 to 1. Laura donated $250. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation added another $500 for a total of $750. That means that thanks to Laura and Laura Carey State Farm Insurance, over 1,200 children will be given the polio vaccine and will never have to get polio.
Here's a photo of Laura Carey handing over the cheque to our Rotary Club of Oshawa-Parkwood President, Robbie Larocque.


And I understand that Laura Carey wants to do the same thing again in 2015.

What if all Rotarians in all Rotary Clubs, who have companies ,asked everyone they knew to like their Facebook Page too, and then those companies just might make a donation to End Polio Now for every LIKE as Laura has done? What a boost to Rotary Foundation 's PolioPlus Campaign that would be. 

Thank you so much to Rotary, to the Rotary Club of Oshawa-Parkwood, to our very own Rotarian Laura Carey and Laura Carey State Farm Insurance.
