  • Walk for The Eliminate Project

    Help save women and babies before breakfast when you join or support The Eliminate Project Walk during the 98th Kiwanis International Convention in Vancouver. And your medal-worthy efforts will be lit by a genuine Olympic torch!

    Vancouver's Olympic Cauldron, which reflects the fire on ice theme of the 2010 Winter Olympics, will be relit in honor of the more than 61 million women and babies Kiwanians will help save or protect through The Eliminate Project. Our 1.2-mile walk around the Convention Center will take place on Friday, June 28 at 7 a.m., and Circle K members will cheer us on every step of the way.

    Register on-site to walk, or stay in step by supporting fellow members. Your US$30 sponsors one walker and helps save or protect 16 lives. A gift of US$180 supports six walkers and will help save or protect more than 100 women and babies. Step up now!

  • Eliminate Week honored mothers

    Aktion Clubs, Builders Clubs, K-Kids clubs and Key Clubs like yours honored their mothers by using Mother’s Day week (May 6-10) to raise funds and awareness for The Eliminate Project.

    For Eliminate Week, Bowling Green K-Kids showed off their talents; Albuquerque Aktion Club members sold cookies. The Tenafly Key Club helped their peers pick out jewelry for mom, all to support the mother-child connection and raise funds for The Eliminate Project. Each club that participated is eligible for fundraising recognition and a 2013 Eliminate Week patch.

    Now that the fun is done and you’ve collected your club’s donations, complete the Kiwanis Family Giving Form and send your check to The Eliminate Project: Campaign Office, Kiwanis International Foundation, 3636 Woodview Trace, Indianapolis, IN 46268 USA. Be sure to write your club name or number on the check’s memo line and note that the funds were collected during Eliminate Week. And don’t forget to submit your club’s request for a 2013 Eliminate Week patch.

    For project ideas and to start planning for next year, visit the Eliminate Week websites of Aktion Club, Kiwanis KidsBuilders Club and Key Club.

  • To celebrate fathers, tackle MNT

    No one wants to keep mothers and babies safe more than dad does. Father’s Day is the ideal time to support The Eliminate Project and help protect the connection for millions of families.

    Your club could host a Father’s Day fundraising event for The Eliminate Project like an activity fair or block party where parents and children play games the whole family will enjoy. Or give dads a chance to show off their prowess at the pot with a chili cook-off. A father-daughter dance brings the added benefit of giving moms a break while also raising money for The Eliminate Project. Additional ideas are available on The Eliminate Project website.
                     
    You’ll make dad the most proud by recognizing him with a Walter Zeller Fellowship; the best gift will be knowing that you are saving or protecting more than 690 lives in his honor. The chances to support dad and The Eliminate Project are only limited by your imagination! Make a gift now.
