For as little as US60 cents, a child can be vaccinated against polio for life.

Your donation now works even harder.
 From 2013 to 2018, every US dollar Rotary commits
 to polio eradication will become three dollars, 
thanks to a 2-to-1 match from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.


Both there links [below] will take you to the first floor of 
Rotary International Headquarters in Evanston Chicago

Food for Thought !!
Facebook just bought WhatsApp for $19 billion. 
Here is something that  would cost you less to buy.


Ski lift fail

A local drug rehab center had fallen into disrepair
 and the grounds were in shambles.
 The newly hired director assumed the task of upgrading the facility.
 The improvements became the pride of the downtown section
 of the city with newly planted bushes and a lush, thick lawn, 
and accent art scattered everywhere.

The director of the center was known for his humorous approach 
to even the most traumatic of circumstance
. Considering the service he was providing to the community,
 his constant, upbeat personality was the envy
 of all who came to know him.

He was also into landscaping with a passion 
and the new lawn and bushes and new,
 young trees were a source of great pride for him.

And so it was not a surprise when he chose a motto
 for the drug rehabilitation center that matched 
his desires for the preservation of the center's good appearance
 Keep Off The Grass.

Would you ride on this bus???
