Secret Word: Hope
Hello Division 38! Summer vacation is finally here! Hopefully you all are having a blast so far, I know mine has. I started it off at the Key Club International Convention and I have a lot of information to pass on to all of you. Please read and enjoy this newsletter, it contains a lot of important information. Please keep in touch with me if you have any questions or ideas. I look forward to seeing you all at the next DCM where we will be going over most of the things that are in this newsletter and finalizing a lot of our ideas, I would really love if I had everyoneâ€™s opinion include. See you soon and have an amazing summer!
District Project As most of you know the Pacific Northwest district project is KCCP, Kiwanis Childrenâ€™s Cancer Program. All of the Kiwanis family will be working together to do various things to help the children suffering from pediatrics cancer. We all will be doing our best to raise as much money as we can to help fund the research for a cure, there is no set goal on how much we will strive to make, we will all just raise and give as much as we can because no one knows how much it will cost to find a cure for pediatric cancer. Besides raising money, we will also be supporting the children in the hospitals by making trauma dolls, fleece blankets, cards and anything else that will help the children through this difficult time in their life. The hospital that we will be supporting is Seattle Childrenâ€™s Teaching and Research Hospital. Each division has been given the opportunity to come up with their own way to support KCCP and division 38 has decided to design and sell rubber wristbands, please come to the next DCM where we will be finalizing some of our ideas.
Key Club International has chosen three service organizations to partner up with and help. This first is the Eliminate project. Many women are losing their new born babies to maternal/neonatal tetanus. This disease destroys families; as soon as the babies are born they are separated from their mothers because the touch of anything including light will hurt them, a week later the babies pass away. The treatment for this disease is only $1.80, which is less expensive than most coffees. Key club will be working with Uniceft to raise money to help these families. Our other service partner is the Childrenâ€™s Miracle Network Hospitals. They help support families and treat children with any kind of ailment from broken bones to any and all diseases. They help families first and think about money second, which is amazing for families with financial problems. Our last partner is the March of Dimes project. This is a walk that we take every year around downtown Olympia to raise money and awareness for prematurity. Babies are born too soon every day, and the March of Dimes project helps support these families affected by prematurity and help assure that the babies grow up happy.
Upcoming Events July DCM on the 21st! 1pm to 3pm. Please try your best to attend, I would like to have some of our ideas about T-shirts and KCCP finalized so that we can have it moving before school starts.
