Eliminate Project

tot-orangeOne of the largest fundraising projects each year for the Eliminate Project is Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.


The process is easy! You can participate in five simple steps:

  1. Decide with your club what kind of fundraiser you’ll do.
  2. Order your collection boxes.
  3. Collect donations.
  4. Fill out the gift form and submit it with your club’s donations – be sure the funds are received by December 31, 2019!
  5. Celebrate! You’re helping save moms and babies.

Where to send funds

Once you’ve collected all of your donations, send a check or money order (made payable to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund) and your completed gift form to:

The Eliminate Project: Campaign Office
Kiwanis Children’s Fund
P.O. Box 6457 – Dept #286
Indianapolis, IN 46206 USA
ATTN: Trick-or-Treat

Be sure to include “Trick-or-Treat” and your club number on the memo line of the check.

It’s important to send your check directly to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund so we can keep track of all funds raised by Kiwanis-family clubs. This year, the Service Leadership Program goal is to raise more than US$1 million. We need help from you and your club!

With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. Neonatal tetanus kills one baby every nine minutes—nearly 60,000 newborn children every year. A significant number of women also die due to maternal tetanus. The effects of the disease are excruciating—tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.

The Georgia District of Key Club International is working hard to assist Kiwanis and UNICEF with eliminating this disease from the face of the planet. The District Board has set Georgia’s fundraising goal at $14,000 for the 2019-2020 Service Year.

To reach our goal, we need each member’s individual effort. Each local Key Club is asked to raise $250 – enough money to save the lives of 138 mothers and their future babies.

For less than two dollars – just $1.80 – you can save a life. The Eliminate Project is the epitome of the Kiwanis Family’s mission to change the world through service one child and one community at a time.

To eliminate MNT from the Earth, 129 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take $110 million—and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family.

Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to tackle iodine deficiency disorders, achieving one of the most significant public health successes of the 20th century. Now, together, they are eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth.  In doing so, the project will reach the poorest, most neglected mothers and babies with additional lifesaving health care. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for so many families.
