Unintentional injury is the #1 killer of children who are 14 and younger. It kills more children than any other cause, including disease, homicide, and suicide. And what is most surprising about these unintentional injuries is that 90% of them can be prevented. In 1994, the Kiwanis CNH Foundation joined forces with the California-Nevada-Hawaii Sponsored Leadership Programs to help raise money for the Pediatric Trauma Program. Since then, the Cali-Nev-Ha Key Club District has become a leading contributor to the program by fundraising thousands of dollars each year that goes towards training pediatric doctors and purchasing much-needed medical equipment. However, without your help, none of this would be possible. The efforts that you put into fundraising through bake sales, car washes, Awake-athons, restaurant nights, and other creative events are truly what make a difference. By attending Fall Rally, you will be enjoying a day full of CNH spirit and love, while contributing even further to our fundraising goals and helping to provide children with the opportunity to survive from unintentional injuries. On behalf of the CNH Key Club District, thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to sharing the golden experience of Fall Rally with you this year.


OPPORTUNITIES We, Division 31, are one of the 72 divisions in the California-Nevada-Hawai’i District of Key Club. The KC Board provides these opportunities for your club to expand and grow with funds for more service, and to learn more about Key Club on the District level with service initiatives!

Youth Opportunites Fund Hello, D31 Robots with Hearts, The new school year is approaching, which means a new start to everything—especially new ways to serve our community! Have you ever had a great idea for a service project that you really wanted to do but didn't have the money for? Key Club International has a solution: the annual Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF), which provides an opportunity for clubs to receive funding for their projects. What is a YOF grant? The Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) is an endowed fund for Key Club International held within the Kiwanis International Foundation. The YOF fund uses earned interest to help Key Clubbers serve the world by providing grants for service opportunities. Every year, fifty cents from each member's dues payment as well as the G. Harold Martin Fellowships help to fund this grant. Please note that this grant is a reimbursement process, so you do have to front the money. The YOF grant application is due on October 15th, 2013; no late submissions will be accepted! The application may be mailed, faxed, or e-mailed. What is the application like? Have no fear: the application is quick and simple! It asks for information on what the project is, how much it will cost, how it benefits the community, and more. The application can be found at http://keyclub.org/service/fund/yof.aspx Who can apply? Any club that is in good standing (has dues paid and is not suspended or inactive) can apply. Please note that the YOF is intended for projects at the club level; applications for division-wide or interclub projects will be rejected! Statistics/Resources For the 2012-2013 Key Club term, three clubs in the California-Nevada-Hawaii District (Granite Bay, Cloverdale, and Leland) received funds from the YOF Grant. The International Business Subcommittee of the Policy, International Business, & Elections Committee has created a flyer that details the success stories of the three clubs that received grants and also includes frequently asked questions and tips for the application process. We hope to see many applications from CNH this year! If you have any GOLDEN questions, please do not hesitate to email me or Policy, International Business, & Elections Chair Jacob Torres at cnhkc.pie@gmail.com.


Spotlight on Service Program The Spotlight on Service Program was created by the Service Projects Committee to educate California-Nevada-Hawai`i Key Clubbers about the Key Club International as well as Cali-Nev-Ha Service Initiatives and encourage active participation with/for the organizations and initiatives. A service Initiative was assigned to each month in which clubs should focus a project or two on supporting the initiative. September's Initative -- Nickelodeon's Big Help & World Wide Day of Play The month of September will be focused on Nickelodeon and their Big Help and World Wide Day of Play programs. The Big Help is a community outreach program that promotes community service and volunteering. This program supports the contributions that children can make to their communities. From helping out at a food bank, to cleaning up the litter in their communities, kids that have joined The Big Help service initiative are making a golden impact on their communities and the world. Are you wondering about how to help out? There are plenty of ways that you can join the movement! Their Main project is the Worldwide Day of Play – a day dedicated to getting out and getting active. World Wide Day of Play will be taking place on September 21, 2013 in New York City. Being that many children are unable to travel to that site, you can plan your own Worldwide Day of Play event in your community! Another way you can get involved is by hosting a canned food drive and donating what you’ve received to a local soup kitchen! Other ways to help out include volunteering at a local animal shelter or planting a garden. The possibilities are endless – you have the power to choose how you make an impact on your communities. For more information and project ideas, visit their website at www.nick.com/thebighelp/explanation or http://www.nick.com/thebighelp/road-to-wwdop/. You can also call them at 212-846-4333 or email them at publicaffairs@nick.com!

October's Initiative – UNICEF The service initiative for the month of October is UNICEF. UNICEF is a global humanitarian relief organization working in over 150 countries providing children with health care and immunizations, clean water, nutrition, food, education, emergency relief, and more! Kiwanis International has partnered with UNICEF to eliminate Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) from the face of the earth by 2015. This is known as the Eliminate Project. $1.80 provides a series of three vaccinations which protects a mother and future babies. We are encouraging you to get active and support the Eliminate Project through project such as Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, a walk to eliminate, or an eliminate dance. There are many GOLDEN ways to fundraise and support the Eliminate Project. Visit www.TheEliminateProject.org/resources for more ideas! Project Submission Process Clubs must submit their project through an electronic form. Here is the link for the Project Submission Form. This form is very easy to complete and is due by the 5th of each month for the previous month. (The deadline for September project submission is October 5th.) If you are planning on submitting pictures, please send them to cnhkc.sp@gmail.com. Please remember that we like action pictures of members doing service and not posing.


RECOGNITION Although every single member that serves Division 31 is absolutely amazing, there can only be one Member of the Month, and only one Officer of the Month. As a member, there are many things you can do to get recognized. Send in articles and visuals, attend the monthly DCM’s (Kiwanis has them, too!) Officers can send Cecilia invitations to their events as well as organize their own. Next month, this could be you!

Grossmont High School Key Club met on campus for a cleanup to induct the new year, new excitement, and new members. From freshmen to seniors, the club met with enthusiasm on a bright and shining Saturday morning to pick up trash, socialize, and to have a positive impact on their community. By having a cleanup on their home campus, it was easy for many new and returning members to attend, allowing the club to become acquainted and excited for the many hours of time they are willing to devote in this upcoming year. With the boombox playing when they were working, these motivated Hillers were able to leave with a smile on their faces, as they know they had done something for the better good.

Our first meeting of the year was quite a success. The room was crowded with many excited faces and the atmosphere buzzed with excitement. Our president, Allisen Jones, began to speak about this year’s upcoming events and what Key Club is all about and how we, as Key Club, support the Eliminate Project and PTP. Many cleanups and events were planned at this meeting, such as the Pacific Beach cleanup, happening on the 20th of September. Allisen passed around an informational sheet on these events along with a Key Club magazine. We had about 45 attendees to this meeting, and I have never seen a group more ready to serve this community.

On August 31, our club at Valhalla was able to put together a yard sale at a family member's home in order to raise funds for the club. These funds will be used for those members with financial issues whether it be not being able to afford dues, Fall Rally, or the annual trip to decorate Rose Bowl floats. While selling our merchandise (old junk from our garage), we also sold burritos that my grandma was able to make at her restaurant along with lemonade that our treasurer, Ione Hughes, was able to make. Through our hard work, we were able to raise $288.59! All in all, the fundraiser was a success, and I recommend it to other clubs looking for a way to raise money for either their own club, PTP, or project ELIMINATE.
