On January 10, 2012, we posted a blog titled, “A Worthy Cause”, which introduced you, our readers, to the Denny Wilford Foundation. The Denny Wilford foundation was established to help continue the Rotary Club’s mission of eradicating the world of polio. Denny and his group have been focused on assisting communities in Ethiopia deal with a still prevalent polio crisis.
In that blog, we asked for donations on behalf of the Business Continuity and Emergency Management Planning community, at large, to contribute to this cause. We also posted the blog in several Linked-In special interest groups for business continuity planners.
Today, May 8, 2012, at the Gig Harbor Midday Rotary Club luncheon, Joe Flach, CEO of Safe Harbor Consulting was able to present to Denny, on behalf of all Business Continuity and Emergency Management professionals who graciously contributed to this cause, a check for $500.00.
Denny was very thankful for the contribution and was proud to announce that this check just about helped him reach his total funding goal for the water aerobics therapy facility his foundation is building in Addis Ababa, Ehtiopia.
If you did not have a chance to contribute during this drive, but still wish to make a donation to the Denny Wilford Foundation, please do so through this link.
I knew I could count on my fellow professionals to help out on this worthy cause. Thank you for your thoughtful contributions.
