  • Kiwanis One Day is on October 28!

    Kiwanis One Day—it’s the day each year when the Kiwanis family of clubs comes together in local communities. Every K-Kids club is invited to join with the rest of the Kiwanis family (Aktion Club, Builders Club, Key Club, Circle K and Kiwanis) for a day of united service. A lot of good work gets done on this day—the kind that increases Kiwanis’ presence in the community and builds awareness about the value of service.

    In fact, Kiwanis One Day showcases the Kiwanis family in each community. Projects run the gamut from beach cleanups to book drives, playground maintenance to pet days at senior centers, health fairs to high school beatifications. Imagine the impact more than 600,000 Kiwanis family members around the world can make in one day of united service.

  • It's time to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF!

    For the Kiwanis family, Halloween means more than spooky decorations, fairytale costumes and ghoulish treats. It’s a chance to put the fun in fundraising—and save lives through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. For less than the cost of a bag of Halloween candy, you can protect a mother and her future newborns from maternal and neonatal tetanus.

    It’s easy to participate. Here are five simple steps for your project:

          1. Pick a fundraiser. Collect funds door-to-door. Dance the night
              away alongside vampires and werewolves. Host a trunk-or-treat.
              Enjoy an old-fashioned pumpkin pie bake off. The ideas are
              endless.
     

          2. Set your goal. Estimate what you'll raise through your project.
              Then add in your expenses. This total is your fundraising goal.

          3. Get supplies. Do you have everything you need to host your
              fundraiser? Order collection boxes through the Kiwanis family
              store.
    Consider asking for donations from local businesses or
              even large chain stores.

          4. Promote your event. Print out Trick-or-Treat labels, or make
              your own flier or display. Use them to let everyone know
              about the upcoming event and how they can donate. Share the
              information with your sponsoring Kiwanis club.

          5. Submit your donations. Send your donations to the Kiwanis
              Children’s Fund along with the Kiwanis-family giving form.
              If your club submits US$250 in donations for Trick-or-Treat
              for UNICEF by December 31, 2017, your club will earn a
              banner patch.

    Thank you for committing to help eliminate MNT. For more information, visit TheEliminateProject.org/trickortreat, or contact campaign@theeliminateproject.org.
