ABOUT THE ELIMINATE PROJECT

Every 17 minutes, a newborn baby dies from tetanus. That short lifetime is marked by pain — babies suffer an extreme sensitivity to light, sound or contact that prevents even a mother’s touch.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. In 2010, the Kiwanis family partnered with UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) through a joint effort called The Eliminate Project. As of April 30, 2019, The Eliminate Project has raised more than US$85 million.

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is an easy — and fun — way for the Kiwanis family to raise money to protect moms and babies from this deadly disease.

Since 2010, we’ve helped eliminate MNT in 26 countries. Every year, 24,000 more babies are born unaffected by tetanus. And millions of mothers have been vaccinated.

But the fight is not over. MNT still affects moms and babies in the 13 countries that are hardest to reach.

Now, it’s more important than ever. This Halloween, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF to save and protect lives.

TURN IN YOUR FUNDS

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

      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 ckeck's memo line.

It's important to send your check directly to the Kiwanis Children's Fund so we can keep track of the money raised by Kiwanis-family clubs.

If your club uses Coinstar

If your club uses a coin counting kiosk such as Coinstar to submit the money directly to UNICEF USA, be sure to send your receipts to the Children’s Fund immediately. We will notify UNICEF USA and ensure the gift is credited to your club and The Eliminate Project.
