How are we helping? Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) is 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. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. It will take US$110 million — and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family. Kiwanis and UNICEF joined forces to tackle iodine deficiency disorders, achieving one of the most significant public health successes of the 20th century. Now, they are eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. And in doing so, the project will reach the poorest, most neglected mothers and babies with additional lifesaving health care. The end of this one disease means the beginning of better health for so many families.

The theme for RTC this year is supernatural, what supernatural being would you be and why?
I would be a Unicorn, so I can have a horn on my head!
A PHOENIX! MWAHAHAHAHA! They are magical beings that fly around being awesome, with a spirit that shall never end ever. WORD!

This might sound bizarre but if I could be
I want to be a vampire, so I can attack people at night!!!
any supernatural being I think I'd be a talking tree. I mean, they seem so wise and chill. But in the lord of the rings they walk so I think that'd be awesome. You get to tell travelers what's up, live for years, and run if someone tries to cut you down. Talking trees know how to live life.
