Today kicks off the first ever Key Club International Eliminate Project week! Our goal is to advocate and fundraise for The Eliminate Project, in which Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces in order to eliminate Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus (MNT), a completely preventable disease spread through spores in the soil and only effects the poorest countries on our planet. Every 9 minutes a child dies of this disease, but not before suffering from extreme convulsions and sensitivity to light and touch. But with the help of the entire Kiwanis International family, we will raise $110 million by 2015 in order to save the lives of 61 million people. All it takes is $1.80. That is the amount it costs to vaccinate one mother and all of her future children. Educate yourself by visiting theeliminateproject.org for more information and great ways to fundraise!
