Large gift adds momentum to The Eliminate Project

Feb 10, 2014

The Kiwanis family is one million dollars closer to reaching its US$110 million goal—and protecting the connection between 61 million women and babies—thanks to a generous Kiwanis member. The US$1 million gift brings total funds raised for The Eliminate Project to US$47.6 million in cash and pledges as of February 3, 2014.

We are within reach of our goal. Together, let’s raise an additional US$62.4 million to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus—and ensure no mother faces the death of her baby simply because she didn’t have access to a safe birthing environment or three doses of the tetanus vaccine that cost only US$1.80.

Women and babies in 25 countries remain at risk of the deadly disease and need our help.

This is our chance to change the world and make history. Kiwanis needs each and every club and club member to participate to make sure 2015 is a year of celebration. Find ideas at www.TheEliminateProject.org.
