Eliminate Week: Are you ready?

Eliminate Week—an especially fun and easy way to support The Eliminate Project before Mother’s Day—is right around the corner! Now’s the time to finalize your plans for this year’s Eliminate Week, May 4–8. Raise awareness and funds to help end maternal and neonatal tetanus around the world. Use this Eliminate Week graphic on your school’s website or social media page to promote your club’s events.
 
The big week is almost here. Need ideas? Here are a few that your club can still do. Don’t forget to work with your school administration for any needed permission or cooperation.

  • Host a hat day. Ask students to donate US$1 to wear a hat during the school day. 
  • Collect spare change. Have students decorate cans, cups or even milk jugs using the cutout toolkit. Then organize a club effort to ask fellow students in the lunchroom to donate—telling them that even spare change can help protect mothers and babies around the world.
  • Host a penny war. The object is for each team in the school to collect as many pennies as possible, adding fun by “sabotaging” the other teams with nickels, dimes and quarters.
More ideas and resources can be found at KiwanisKids.org/EliminateWeek. After your project is complete, fill out the online form for your 2015 Eliminate Week patch. Celebrate club member’s accomplishments!
