The Rotary Club of Healdsburg (Noon) is marking the historic progress toward making this a polio-free world. In 1988, there were 350,000 cases of polio in 125 countries. Today, polio cases have been reduced 99.9 percent, and just two countries continue to report cases: Afghanistan and Pakistan.  The "Green Hair Day" fundraiser has been our principal method for raising funds for the eradication of polio, helping Rotary International to bolster its PolioPlus initiatives.
How do our members raise money for the Green Hair Day campaign? We paint our hair green!  Please submit your pledge via our website    to encourage any of our illustrious Rotarians to wear green hair on St Patrick‚Äôs Day and the Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation will match your contribution 2 to 1 (check out this 22 second video for more information):
