Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF: Now's the time to make a difference!

Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is one our most important fundraisers of the year. It’s the perfect opportunity for your Aktion Clubs to make a difference in the lives of women and babies around the world as we work together to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. Just US$1.80—less than a bag of Halloween candy—provides a series of three doses of vaccine, which protects a mother and her future newborns. Here’s how your club can take part:

1. Forgot to order boxes? Don’t worry! You can print out Trick-or-Treat labels or make your own displays to let everyone know about your club’s activities and opportunities to donate.

2. Have fun and save lives. It doesn't take much money or time to create a successful Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF fundraiser. Consider one of these ideas—or come up with your own! Also, do not forget to thank your donors and you can print your own thank you cards to hand out.  

3. Send in your funds. When your fundraising is done, send a check or money order (payable to the Kiwanis International Foundation) and your completed gift form to: 

The Eliminate Project: Campaign Office
Kiwanis International Foundation
3636 Woodview Trace
Indianapolis, IN 46268, USA
ATTN: Trick-or-Treat  Write your club name or club number on the memo line of the check

4. Get recognized. If you submit US$250 in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF donations before Dec. 31, 2014, your club will earn a banner patch. And don’t forget that if you protect more than 555 lives, your club will be eligible for a 1K patch. Get your Kiwanis club involved, and double your lifesaving impact and earn the Unity Award together with your Kiwanis club! 

Thank you for all you and your club are doing to help women and babies around the world. We need every Aktion Club member to help Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs reach our US$3 million goal to save or protect more than 1.6 million moms and babies.
