Challenge for Aktion Clubs

Aktion Clubs have been a big supporter of The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus. As of October 1, 2014, Aktion Clubs have raised more than US$92,694, which will save or protect more than 51,400 lives. What a great achievement! More than US$23,000 each year, through fundraising activities at the club and district level, and in partnering with sponsored Kiwanis Clubs.  We have even seen some of the Aktion Club members be honored with Walter Zeller Awards!   

We could really celebrate the 100 year anniversary of Kiwanis International in January 2015, and reach a goal of $100,000, saving more than 4,000 lives between now and January 21, 2015. If each club would make a contribution equal to less than $1.00 per member this alone would reach the goal, and exceed it, since our total membership is just over 11,000 members.  Will you and your club help us, and be a part of the challenge?

During this time period, we have many opportunities to raise these funds, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, Thanksgiving and Giving Tuesday, holiday gifts, but don’t forget: Your funds need to be submitted to be counted and to save lives! 

As a club, or as a district, do you have a story to share about your fundraising efforts, how many lives you saved, and pictures of your club in action? These should be shared, and sent to David Coulter at davidcoulter46@gmail.com so we can share your success, with other Aktion Clubs, and other SLP clubs, and inspire them.
