A moment of kindness can change a life


At this time of year, so many Kiwanis members ask themselves: Did I do everything I could have? Thanks to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund, there’s always time to make a difference.  

Watch this video to see how gifts to the Children’s Fund helped one Kiwanis club turn a week-long camp for at-risk kids into a life-changing experience. And read below about the children from around the world whose lives are better because Kiwanians care.  

When you give...

Kiwanis clubs make a difference in their communities. 

The Kiwanis Club of Berlin, New Hampshire, has held a bike rodeo for 25 years. Every May, children look through rows and rows of bike helmets. With support from the Children’s Fund, this year’s event distributed more than 400 free helmets to families. Support like yours improves projects like this — because your gift makes our grants possible.

Kiwanis and UNICEF continue to fight iodine deficiency disorders. 

In Port Sudan, kids get meals full of nutrients — including the iodine that prevents IDD, the leading preventable cause of mental disabilities. Kiwanis is keeping up its commitment because of gifts like yours, which help kids around the world reach their potential. 

Key Leader offers a unique weekend experience for motivated teens. 

For 15 years, the program has empowered them to explore their potential and become servant leaders. The Kiwanis Children’s Fund has been there from the start. With your gift, Kiwanis helps the next generation of leaders inspire each other to continue their journey of service. 

Kiwanians provide disaster relief to stricken communities — promptly. 

After Hurricane Florence hit Lumberton, North Carolina, a grant helped Mary Winfree and her fellow members spring into action. Mary led the effort to get kids food, school supplies and blankets made by Key Club members. When you give, children in their darkest hours get help from Kiwanis members like Mary.

The Eliminate Project is saving millions of mothers and babies from maternal and neonatal tetanus. 

In Bouna, Côte d’Ivoire, Carine Hianini did not receive prenatal care during her previous pregnancies — and her second child became ill after birth. Now Carine is experiencing a safer pregnancy, with regular check-ups at a hospital. So many women still need this kind of healthcare and education. Your gift helps Kiwanis and UNICEF provide it — even in some of the world’s most inaccessible places.
