My Pinky is Purple

My pinkie was dyed purple*, I even took a picture for proof. Sadly I left the camera at home so I can't upload the images. Why would I let someone dye my pinky purple? To help raise funds for the New Minas Rotary Clubs campaign to help eradicate polio.
"Rotary International, which committed to ending polio in 1985, has been applauded by nearly everyone, including the United Nations and the Wall Street Journal, for being instrumental in reducing the polio plague to less than 2,000 cases each year today in just four countries—Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria and India."

*When a child is vaccinated they mark the pinky with purple so that there is not a mix up and a child receives a double dose or another gets missed.
