What’s New with Kiwanis? Kiwanis raised well over $100 million to combat Iodine Deficiency Disorder. Now we tackle Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus with a campaign to raise $110M by 2015, the 100 th anniversary of Kiwanis, to eliminate this disease. In 40 30 countries, a child dies a needless death 160 times/day. $1.80 will save a life. www.theeliminateproject.org www.theeliminateproject.org X
Why Join Kiwanis? To be a part of something your child is involved in, which will encourage your child to continue to serve others throughout his/her lifetime. To meet other like-minded individuals in the community for networking, fellowship, and friendship. To help to continue to develop Kiwanis’ reach of Service Leadership Programs in the area. AND FINALLY, AND MOST IMPORTANT…. To help those who are less fortunate.
Thank you for coming. We hope to see you at a meeting soon!
