TRICK-OR-TREA

H

alloween is right around the corner! In addition to all of the tricks and treats, Key Club members know that there is also the sweet pleasure of service. So scare up some funds and fun this Halloween by participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. It’s a great opportunity to collect donations instead of candy or to bring club members together for a fabulous event or party. All money collected by Key Club members will once again support The Eliminate Project, helping to save moms and babies from maternal and neonatal tetanus.

HOW TO TAKE PART THE PROCESS IS EASY! YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS: 1. Decide with your club what kind of fundraiser you’ll do. 2. Order your collection boxes. 3. Collect donations. 4. Fill out the gift form and submit it with your club’s donations. 5. Celebrate! You’re helping save moms and babies. 8


AT FOR UNICEF WHERE TO SEND FUNDS Be sure to write your club name or club number on the memo line of the check.

Once you’ve collected all of your donations, send a check or money order (made payable to the Kiwanis International Foundation) and your completed gift form to: The Eliminate Project: Campaign Office Kiwanis International Foundation P.O. Box 6457 - Dept #286 Indianapolis, IN 46206 USA ATTN: Trick-or-Treat

It’s important to send your check directly to the Kiwanis International Foundation so we can keep track of all funds raised by Kiwanis-family clubs. This year, the Service Leadership Program goal is to raise more than $1 million. We need help from you and your club! RECOGNITION Clubs that raise and submit more than $250 by December 31 will receive a special banner patch. So don’t forget to send in the funds you raise by the deadline!

Did you know? A proud participant in Trickor-Treat for UNICEF since 1994, Key Club has raised more than US$7 million for child survival and development programs around the world—from efforts to eliminate iodine deficiency disorder to HIV/AIDS initiatives in Kenya and Swaziland. Starting in 2012 Key Club joined other Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF to raise money for The Eliminate Project. 9

Preferred Charities The Thirst Project Since 2014 Key Club International has been partnering with the Thirst Project during the Month of March to participate in the "Dirty Little Secret" campaign. In March, and for all of World Water Day with the help of Key Club International, the Thirst Project is telling the world's biggest dirty little secret 748 Million people on our planet do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. Key Club members fill up a water bottle with dirty water and carry the bottle around all month. When people ask why, Key Club members share the secret.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Key Club participates with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals by sponsoring fundraising events. Key Club members also participate in service projects at their local children’s hospital.

UNICEF Since 1994, Key Club has been Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF and over the years has raised nearly US$5 million for iodine deficiency programs worldwide and HIV and AIDS programs in Kenya and Swaziland. Now it’s helping The Eliminate Project.
