A HELLO FROM YOUR

LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR: SAMUEL GONZALEZ

Hey Toucans! Key Club Day North is only a month away and I’m super excited to be able to see all of you clubbers at wild waves! This Summer has moved by so quick and I absolutely cannot wait to see the future impact that you guys will achieve as members. There still is some time, though, to go out and serve your communities before the school bell rings, so I hope everyone takes the opportunity to help those in need. Don’t forget to buy your ticket for Key Club Day North. In Spirit and Service,

Samuel Gonzalez

Get to know our Kiwanis partners. VISION PARTNERS Landscape Structures Inc. has been creating innovative playground equipment since 1971. Think of the impact your club could have in your community by constructing a playground as a signature project. Ask your members if giving children a place to play is the right project for your club. See Kiwanis playgrounds and find a local representative at playlsi.com. Nickelodeon’s The Big Help campaign puts kids into action to do something about issues communities face. Kiwanis clubs are encouraged to work with their SLPs on projects like Worldwide Day of Play—when the network goes black and kids are encouraged to head outdoors and help their community. Learn what your club can do to engage at nick.com/thebighelp. The U.S. Army partnership is based on a foundation of shared values. Engaging in local opportunities, U.S. Army personnel connect with Kiwanis family members and provide access to local battalion support and resources. Contact your local battalion to invite soldiers to speak at a club meeting, take part in service projects and become Kiwanis members. goarmy.com.

KEY CLUB CO-SPONSOR Rustic Pathways has more than 30 years of experience leading exceptional international education and service programs. High school students broaden their global perspective while performing meaningful service projects around the world. Learn more about the incredible trips offered by inviting a local representative to speak at a club meeting or district convention. Find your local connection at Rusticpathways.com.

PROMOTIONAL PARTNERS Scholastic Books partners with the Kiwanis Family to promote literacy outreach programs. Discuss with your club members how a reading oasis for your local school can be woven into your signature service projects and discover the wide array of literacy programs at kiwanisone.org/read. Up with People is a global education organization focused on bringing the world together through service and music. Kiwanis clubs can engage with Up with People by coordinating service projects, hosting the cast in their homes and sponsoring performances as fundraisers. Find out when Up with People will be in your area at upwithpeople.org.


COMMUNITY PARTNERS Sister Cities International serves as the national membership organization for individual sister cities, states and countries across the U.S. This partnership gives Kiwanians access to more than 2,100 international partnerships, member rates on events and exchange opportunities. Think about how your club can increase local education, arts and cultural impact through a Sister City collaboration. Contact your local Sister City Program through the city search on sister-cities.org. JCI is a nonprofit organization of young active citizens, ages 18 to 40, who are engaged and committed to making an impact in their communities. Kiwanians can partner with JCI members on joint community projects to increase local impact. Find your local JCI chapter or contact your state office to inquire about ways to connect and collaborate. kiwanis.org/findjci

CAUSE PARTNERS IHOP. Your club members can support National Pancake Day by serving as ambassadors to encourage restaurant patrons to support Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. Beginning in each January, watch for information from Kiwanis International about registering to volunteer on National Pancake Day.

PREFERRED CHARITIES Kiwanis International partners with Boys & Girls Clubs of America with a focus on mentoring tomorrow’s leaders. Invite their staff to a club meeting and begin building an impactful relationship. Find your local Boys & Girls Club at bgca.org. Kiwanis International partners with Boy Scouts of America to ensure boys, young men and women grow in character, citizenship, responsibility and leadership to achieve their greatest potential. Your club can sponsor a local troop and support its projects. Find your troop at scouting.org. Kiwanis family members participate with Children’s Miracle Network by sponsoring fundraising events and conducting service projects at their local children’s hospitals. Get involved by contacting your local CMN hospital and invite a representative to a club meeting to share ideas and create a partnership. Find your hospital at childrensmiraclenetwork.org. Kiwanis family members partner with March of Dimes by raising thousands of dollars annually to give every baby a healthy start. To find out how you can help support local events, such as March for Babies and Prematurity Awareness Month, contact marchofdimes.com. Kiwanis family members joined forces with UNICEF to virtually eliminate iodine deficiency disorders. Today we collaborate on The Eliminate Project, raising US$110 million to help eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus from the planet. Continue to stay up to date on this campaign at theeliminateproject.org.

WHY WATER?

WHO WE ARE Thirst Project is the world’s largest YOUTH water organization.

The average distance that someone in a developing community walks to fetch water is

We exist to educate students about the water crisis and mobilize them to fundraise for global water projects. We're the first organization committed to bringing clean water to an entire nation (Swaziland) by 2022.

a child dies of water-related disease

SERIOUSLY.

gives one person access to clean, safe water FOR LIFE

SWAZI2022 WE WANT TO GIVE THE ENTIRE COUNTRY OF SWAZILAND ACCESS TO CLEAN, SAFE WATER BY 2022!

THIRSTPROJECT.ORG | THE THIRST IS REAL FOR 663 MILLION PEOPLE

WHY? SIZE

POLITICS

HIV/AIDS

CASE STUDY

With 1.4M people, Swaziland is the smallest country in Africa, so our commitment is achievable within a few years.

Shunned by the global development community because of human rights abuses. While bad guys are being bad, real people are dying. We wanna be the good guys.

1 in 5 people are affected by HIV, so lack of access to clean water makes it nearly impossible to treat HIV infected peoples.

Great case study for development orgs to replicate a “complete solution” model.

COST

It’ll take $50million to provide every single person in Swaziland access to clean, safe water for life. It sounds like a lot, but the impact will be priceless.


OUR MODEL We run a national school tour (think Beyonce concert meets Dr. King Jr. speech) to educate young people about the water crisis & help them plan fundraisers for global water projects.

100% of student dollars go to providing safe, clean water to communities in need. The global water crisis is a heartbreaking issue, but doing something about it doesn’t have to be. We believe in making social change fun.

OUR IMPACT SO FAR

OUR FANS We have amazing fans who use their platform to inspire THEIR fans to join our joyful rebellion and end the water crisis. Jennifer Garner (Golden Globe award winning actress)

Over the last 8 years, Thirst Project has

Hosted the Thirst Project Gala.

Provided safe, clean drinking water to over 330,000 people, through over 2200 water projects in 13 countries.

THIRSTPROJECT.ORG | THE THIRST IS REAL FOR 663 MILLION PEOPLE

Presented the global water crisis to over 800 schools. Educated over 400,000 students about the water crisis. Raised over $8.8 million dollars for safe, clean water.

Connor Franta (Mega Youtube Star) Has helped raise over $500k for water projects from his fans.
