Kiwanis Childrens Cancer Program PNW’s Officially Supported Project—KCCP What: Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program When: Now – The Cure Who: Kiwanis, Circle K, Key Club, and YOU! How: Fundraise as much as you can! Educate yourself and others!

KCCP Background

http://www.kiwanis-kccp.org/

The Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program was first established by Kiwanis District Governor Frank Morehouse in the memory of a 10 year old girl, Penny, who died of brain cancer in 1964. The main goal for KCCP is to raise money for cancer research and this will continue until the cure for Children’s Cancer is found.

For more information!

Let’s find the cure to children’s Cancer!

BY THE NUMBERS . . . A baby dies every 9 minutes from MNT 160 babies die each day from MNT

WHAT IS MNT?!

#ELIMIN8

In 34 countries around the world, maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) can quickly turn the joy of childbirth into tragedy. MNT kills one baby every nine minutes. Its effects are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. There is little hope of survival. And tetanus kills mothers too.

Our goal is to raise $1.80 WILL SAVE A MOTHER AND HER FUTURE BABIES US$110million to eliminate MNT by 2015

DO YOUR PART– NOW!!

3 doses of tetanus vaccine cost US$1.80 We will save and protect more than 61 million mothers and their future babies

PL A N A FUND R AIS E R! TELL A FRIEND!

Spotlight: 3 Club Reports Vancouver Westside We started the month of January planning a Humanities and Science Symposium slated on Feb 17 for the benefit of Project Educate. We have invited three speakers –a lawyer, environmental engineer and a biomedical scientist to share about their career path in their field of work. Admission is free but donations are welcome. This symposium is open to all key clubbers or any high school and college students. It will be at 1:30 at the Unitarian Church , 949 West 49th Ave. Vancouver. . We started discussing about the upcoming elections which is happening on Feb 23.

Claremont

What a fun time of year! With exams and everything finishing up for the end of semester, Claremont Key Club decided to lay low in January. We still conducted our annual tree chipping fundraiser, raising over 1000$ for our trip to DCON. We also continued planning elections, social, events and fundraisers to come in February, as we plan on finishing the term of strong!

Spotlight: 3 Club Reports BRITANNIA

ATTN KIWANIS CLUBS : WANT TO CHARTER BRITANNIA KEY CLUB? EMAIL ME!!

To start off our new year as Britannia Key Clubbers, we came up with a New Year’s resolution: to be kind and caring leaders not only within our own club but also to other students in our school. In order to make that dream come true, we came up with a creative and fun service project: making handmade "Take What You Need" posters with a ready-to-take inspirational diction in hopes that our fellow students can find peace and motivational encouragement and boost their self-esteem. Given that school is such a stressful environment (due to exams and drama), we hope that our students will find our project a catalyst to keep them going. January was also an appreciative month for us because we were able to select a Guatemalan child to sponsor through YUDA BANDS. His name is Cristian Ajbal, a 13 years old boy with a burning passion and big aspirations to become a doctor. His siblings are disabled and his parents cannot financially support him with his education. Despite his situation, Cristian is still determined to become a doctor that can hopefully save other children like his siblings and himself someday. The Britannia Key Club is very proud to be able to raise money for a good cause and we hope that Cristian will grow up to be a wonderful leader like us.
