Purple Pinkies for Polio!

Did you know that Polio (or poliomyelitis) can paralyze your arms and legs? Polio is affecting people in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and mostly kids under 5 years old. For only a toonie you can save someone from getting Polio for the rest of their life! 1 toonie!

Explanations of words…

Paralyze: It means you can’t move.

Polio: It’s a sickness that makes it so you can’t move.

Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria: Countries that are affected by Polio.

Affected:  It means in that country there is polio.

At NMES we are raising money to help children who need vaccinations for polio. Help us spread the word!
