Bill Gates leads list of international public figures that are “This Close” to ending polio.

After more than 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are now “This Close” to polio eradication, and a wide array of public figures and celebrities have signed on to help Rotary spread the word.

Headlined by Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates, this diverse lineup of influential leaders and personalities includes Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, action movie star Jackie Chan, conservationist Jane Goodall, premier violinist Itzhak Perlman, Grammy Award winners A.R. Rahman, Angelique Kidjo and Ziggy Marley, golfing great Jack Nicklaus, and peace advocate Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan. In a series of print, broadcast and outdoor public service advertisements each uses a simple hand gesture to show Rotary is “This Close” to wiping out polio worldwide. Nicklaus, Perlman and Tutu are themselves survivors of this crippling disease.
