MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR Dear Key Clubbers, AP tests are this week, but you know what else is this week? ELIMINATE WEEK! In this issue, we’ll be talking about ELIMINATE and the service it provides mothers and their children in the elimination of maternal/neonatal tetanus. We still have several events to sign up for (and much much more in the future!) so make sure to check them out and sign up for them. A big heads up—Relay for Life is just a couple weeks away. The more who sign up, the better! Keep on studying for those AP’s guys!

What is the ELIMINATE PROJECT? With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized.
A great act is to help a fellow human being. The greatest act is to save a human life!
