Queuers give their iPhone to charity, News at

Queuers give their iPhone to charity, News at "When David Clayman arrived in Manhattan last week, he had no idea he'd end up queuing for an iPhone.

Clayman, a soft-spoken, bespectacled 21-year-old, graduated from the University of Chicago earlier in June and decided to spend a few days touring the Big Apple before starting his job as a consultant at enterprise software company SAP. He was staying in a youth hostel, exploring the city, when he walked by the massive glass cube of the Fifth Avenue Apple Store on Monday and saw that the first person had already started queuing for the company's coveted iPhone.

'I'd heard about all the iPhone hype,' he said in a particularly wet interview outside the store during a break in Wednesday night's thunderstorms, 'and I realised that there was clearly going to be a lot of publicity.'"

Last fall our team spent time talking with philanthropies and other organizations with long histories of successful interventions in the field of global public health. Considering many ideas, we talked about what it will take to finally eradicate polio in the developing world, and the role that philanthropy can play. Many of our parents remember what it was like to have polio in this country, and a few people in the States still reside in iron lungs. These generations are advancing, and it's important that we not forget how horrible the crippling of polio can be to those who are at risk today."
