The Second Object
To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
The Golden Rule in English is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
When translated into all our Kiwanis supported languages, it becomes:
Behandle andere so, wie du von ihnen behandelt werden willst. (German)
No hagas a otros lo que no quieres que te hagan a ti. (Spanish)
Traite les autres comme tu voudrais être traité. (French)
Fai agli altri ciò che vorresti fosse fatto a te. (Italian)
Wat gij niet wilt dat u geschiedt, doe dat ook een ander niet (Dutch)
The ways you can illustrate the Second Object include participating in projects, programs and partnerships involving character education, such as those promoted through the Kiwanis Kids Terrific Kids program. We have partnered with some great preferred charities that you can learn more about. You can also honor community heroes who have saved children from harm, and promote active recruitment and enrollment of youth service-minded volunteers.
