Kenyan Singer Eric Wainaina Joins World Polio Celebrity Campaign
Kenyan singer Eric Wainaina has lent his voice to be part of the world's biggest commercial to support polio eradication. It is reportedly the world's biggest public health initiative that boasts of world stars like Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Bill Gates and Jackie Chan.
The Rotary campaign dubbed This Close has seen Eric and several other celebrities donate tracks to the End Polio Now album to help raise funds to eradicate polio.
The Rotary Foundation released the End Polio Now album via iTunes and shoprotary.org. The album includes tracks by Itzhak Perlman, Zeynab, Staff Benda Bilili, Angelique Kidjo, Donovan, Dan Maraya Jos, J-Hawk featuring Tanvi Shah, Nydia Caro, Ziggy Marley and David Sanborn.
Rotary has also created a page on the social media service Thunderclap, which enables supporters to sign up to share a single message through their social media accounts. The message will go out on a designated date and time to amplify the voice of our cause.
You can also be party of World Polio Day today, by lending your voice to spread the word. You can add a photo of yourself alongside the other celebrities who are participating in campaign in the portal.
