“The best way to do it, is to do it.”
Key Leader is a weekend retreat where students get the chance to grow in leadership, make friends, and discover who they truly are. The cost is $200; however, Key Clubbers are encouraged to ask a local Kiwanis Club or school to sponsor them.
One camp that is coming up is on November seventh through the ninth in Bellevue, Washington at Camp Sambica.
The Eliminate Project Kiwanis International and
UNICEF have teamed up
to ELIMINATE Maternal and
Neonatal Tetanus! With
your help we can wipe this
disease off the Earth! It has
already been eliminated in
20 countries, but it is still a
threat in 39! 60,000 babies
die per year, as well as
several mothers, from MNT.
Did you know that 1 child dies every 20 seconds from a disease that could have been prevented by a vaccine?
Well, the vaccine for this disease is only $1.80. MNT is caused when tetanus spores, which are found in the soil,
come into contact with an open cut during childbirth. It leads to convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and
touch so mothers cannot hold their baby when it is born. At this point there is not much people can do. The road
to ending MNT will be hard, but helping out in fundraisers is easy! Through the hard work of Kiwanians, UNICEF, and
volunteers like you, we will see an end to MNT!
Key Club 101
Mission: Key Club is an international, student-led organization providing its members with opportunities to perform service, build character, and develop leadership. Motto : Caring- Our Way of Life. The three Key Club colors all stand for something: blue stands for unwavering character, white stands for purity, and gold stands for service. The core values of Key Club International are leadership, character building, caring, and inclusiveness.
