Rotary COVID19 Telethon

COVID-19 #RotaryResponds Livestream Telethon
Saturday, May 2nd, 10amCST

We are pleased to invite you to participate in a COVID-19 #RotaryResponds one-hour Telethon to raise critical funds for disaster response. This Facebook Live event will be simulcast on the Rotary International Facebook page. Or on YouTube at RotaryResponds. The goal is to raise more than $1 million dollars.

Rotary’s 1.2 million members across the globe have taken swift action to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. More than $3.4 million in Rotary Disaster Response Grants have already been put into action on the front lines to battle COVID-19. Additionally, millions more have been raised by our #PeopleofAction – they have responded quickly and are truly saving lives. Now, we need to do more and the need for additional funding is a priority.

Join this live event to hear stories of hope, inspiration and gratitude from Rotarians, Rotaractors and friends of Rotary from across the globe as they share what they are doing to help their communities. The telethon will also showcase how our polio eradication infrastructure is helping to combat COVID-19.

How can you participate:
1. Participate in the telethon on Facebook Live on 2 May at Rotary International’s Facebook Page (facebook.com/rotary). The live stream will be simulcast in eight languages.
2. Share this event & spread the word through your social media channels.
