In the final effort to eliminate Polio completely the purple pinkie project was created to raise the funds to eradicate the disease in third world countries. In 1985 the number of reported Polio cases was measured at about 400,000 inflicted people in the world. As of 2015 the total number was 74 cases worldwide. For the proposed project all we are asking the students to do is to bring 1 dollar or more to our table during lunch during those five days and we will paint their pinkie finger purple. The reason for the purple is because in third world countries, when humanitarians immunize children for polio, they mark their pinkie finger with a purple pen so that the other workers know that child has received the vaccination.
The Rotary Club will then match the same amount of money that Desert Hills Makes. Also, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation has pledged $2.00 for every $1.00 raised. So essentially every dollar raised at Desert Hills really turns into $4.00
-Thank you so much! Let's be the generation to "END THIS."
