v2.0 is Here!
Due to high demand, this Rotarian could not keep up with orders and decided to have new and improved Stomp Out Polio kicks professionally custom-made. There's a limited quantity of pairs and sizes for $75 each (this includes shipping). Provide your Rotary ID at checkout and the purchase amount will also be applied to your '18-'19 PolioPlus donations!
 
What's new in v2.0? In addition to the End Polio Now logo from the sold-out v1.0 (which in v2.0 is more precise and durable), there is now a Rotary cog on the heel and we've added an insole for comfort, which says "Be the good you want to see in the world." to remind us daily that we've got to be People of Action to achieve our vision. 
 
Here's a breakdown of where your $75 will go:
Pair of high-tops ($15) + Shipping and supplies ($5) = Total shoe overhead ($20)
So, Purchase price ($75) - Overhead ($20)  = $55 to PolioPlus
 
Which means...
PolioPlus donation ($55)  +  Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation 2:1 match ($110) = Total amount of funding to PolioPlus per pair of shoes - $165
Please note that this production run will be the only one. While it has been amazing raising money for a great cause and getting an equally great response, being a shoe distributor isn't on my bucket list!
 

 

Rotary is 1.2M members strong, but its reach is only effective when Rotarians take action. Stomp Out Polio not only generates funds for PolioPlus, it also allows Rotarians to bring awareness to the fight against Polio.

Many non-Rotarians aren't aware of the fact that Polio still exists. By wearing these vibrant shoes out and about, we can start conversations, create allies and grow the effort towards Polio eradication.
