Volume 1, Issue 5 October 2012 Dear Division 7B, Fall session is here!! You know what that mean; it is )me to pull out our comfy sweaters, boots and jackets to welcome this wonderful weather. Besides dressing cute for this Fall, we should also start coun)ng down to our…..wait for it…..TRICK-or-TREAT for UNICEF! As childish as it may seem, I first wanted to join Key Club to carry around cute, li8le UNICEF boxes unaware of the impact it would have on me. It is amazing to know that we have raised more than $100 million so far to help saved the lives of millions of children across the globe from MNT (Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus). This year, the UNICEF boxes will be a white box with no design so that YOU all can be crea)ve with it and design it to your liking. If you have Instagram, you can take a picture of your design and tag @unicefusa to get a chance to be feature of their “photo of the day UNICEF box” . If you have not receive your UNCIEF boxes yet, please go ahead and email Campaign@TheEliminateProject.org or call 317-217-6213 to get your boxes before Halloween. Midterm is coming soon and I wish you all the best of luck! Don’t hesitate to talk to me if you guys ever have any ques)ons or concern! Best Regards,

Ltg. of Division 23A (Chris)ne Reynolds) and I at Fall Rally :)

It’s no big surprise that most of us love our coffee. In fact, it’s an everyday staple and no one say anything when we spend at least four dollars on our ice caramel macchiato with two pumps of raspberry. What if I told you that for the price of your usual coffee order, you could protect two mother and their children from tetanus and s)ll have change leI over? Isn’t that crazy? ELIMINATE is a global project that combined forces of Kiwanis Interna)onal and UNICEF. Together, they have one common goal which is to completely eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) from the face of the Earth. It would take roughly about $110 to ripe out this deadly disease, but every dollar counts.

Just $1.80 provides the vaccine to protect a mother from tetanus and prevent her future children from this excrucia)ng pain and possible death. When a newborn contacts neonatal tetanus, they can’t feel the comfort of their mother’s arm , as every touch sends them into convulsions. Do your part in elimina)ng MNT by raising and awareness about this preventable disease either by handling flyers or organizing a fundraising event to support ELIMINATE. Remember, everything is possible when we all work together. Just think about how 60,000 lives will be saved every year by your contribu)on from Sudan to Cambodia. Every $1.80 will bring our world one immuniza)on closer to elimina)ng maternal and neonatal tetanus.

And all it takes is your morning coffee cup…

Fun Fall Services Happy Early Halloween everyone! Are you all ready to get your services on for the fall? For an example, during Thanksgiving, why don’t we get the club members together and raise money to buy some food for the local Homeless Shelter for a Thanksgiving dinner? Or maybe we could spend a weekend before Thanksgiving at the Boys and Girls Home at Lake Waccamaw, NC to shows that we care about them! The possibili)es are endless when we put out minds together. If you have any services project for this fall or even a special Thanksgiving project you would like to do, shoot me and email at ltg07b@carolinaskeyclub.org or ask your advisor to send me an email so we could organized something together for a divisional event. Here are some of the fundraiser ideas that I have in mind.

Class competition for the UNICEF box The class with the most amount of dona)on toward UNICEF will win an ice-cream/pizza party. This simple compe))on is very easy and to organized.
