Notice anything different about us? We’ve turned a lovely shade of purple in preparation for Rotary’s World Polio Day on the 24th October 2016.
What is World Polio Day?
World Polio Day is a special day where we raise public awareness of the ravages of polio as well as raise public awareness of Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign.
What is so special about the colour purple?
Purple is the colour that is chosen to indicate when a child has been vaccinated against Polio. When a child has been given the Polio vaccine, his or her little finger is coloured purple.
What I can do to take part?
There are several ways that you can take part in World Polio Day:
- Join the World Polio Day Facebook event page.
- Plant crosuses
- Wear something purple, or even dress up in a purple costume
- Host a purple themed party
