Key Club International
Proud participants of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF since 1994.
By collecting donations for UNICEF through the Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF program over the years, Key Club has raised more than $6 million to support:
- Iodine deficiency programs worldwide
- HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland
- Teen centers in Uruguay providing adolescents with job skills, education, family counseling and other social services.
This year Key Club Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF funds will support The Eliminate Project, which will provide resources and advocacy to support elimination of maternal and neonatal tetanus with UNICEF and partners.
Maternal and neonatal tetanus is a terrible tragedy.
In countries where people lack healthcare education and services, a baby can be infected with tetanus during birth and can die within days. That short lifetime is agonizing—a heartbreaking struggle to breathe and to cope and marked by convulsions triggered by the slightest sound or contact. But this disease is easily preventable.
The Eliminate Project
The Eliminate Project will support elimination of this swift, painful and highly preventable disease.
More than 100 million women of childbearing age need to be vaccinated to protect them and their future newborns. An average of $1.80 will provide 3 doses of vaccine, syringes, safe transport and storage, education of communities, training of health workers and more.
This global campaign will protect the lives of millions of mothers and their future newborns.
Every K-Kids, Builders Club, and Key Club that participated in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF during last year’s campaign will receive a fundraising kit with collection boxes to help you conduct a successful campaign.
If you need additional boxes or did not participate last year but wish to do so this year, please call 1-800 KIWANIS (U.S. & Canada), +1-317-217-6213 (worldwide) or email Campaign@TheEliminateProject.org with questions.
