Rotary credit card helps the Foundation
Thanks to those who used the Rotary International credit card, we earned more than US$400,000 to benefit polio eradication and other programs in 2012. In Japan, the money earned benefited the earthquake/tsunami reconstruction effort.
In the Rotary year that ended 30 June, the card programs global royalty earnings exceeded $400,000. The individual totals by country are as follows:
- United States -- $266,000
- Japan -- $77,000
- Canada -- $34,000
- Taiwan -- $17,000
- France -- $15,000
- United Kingdom -- $5,000
- The Philippines -- $3,000
