That’s right, Division 19, the summer months have finally arrived! Now that the worries of school and final exams are behind us, all our cares seem to evaporated by the sun as we relax by the pool, go on vacations, and, yes, even attempt to do our summer homework. Of course, even as we flutter away these carefree months, we mustn’t forget something very important: helping others. Many students volunteer at hospitals and visit soup kitchens in the midst of their summer fun, and it is never too early to start planning for next year’s Key Club events! In Key Club International, the summer is very important. This

THE ELIMINATE PROJECT

3

However, just because The Eliminate Project is the Kiwanis Wordwide

On June 24th, at the Kiwanis International Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Kiwanis International Board unveiled their Worldwide Service Project for the 2010-2011 Kiwanis Service Year: The Eliminate Project. This project is in conjunction with UNICEF, and is an effort to defeat maternal and neonatal tetanus. Maternal and neonatal tetanus are forms of tetanus that occur either during pregnancy or shortly after birth, and claims the lives of 60,000 babies and 30,000 mothers from 40 different countries annually. Fortunately, it is also easily curable. Merely three doses of an immunization can rid a person of this disease. At 60 cents per immunization, it costs only $1.80 to save a life. Kiwanis International has set a worldwide goal of $110 million to help fight this terrible disease. That amount could save 61,111 3 lives.

Service Project, it isn’t exclusive only to Kiwanis clubs. As Key Clubbers, we should help our parent organization reach this goal, and work towards ridding this world of one more tragic disease.
