It’s time to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

October and Halloween are just around the corner. For Aktion Club, Halloween means more than spooky decorations, fairy-tale costumes and ghoulish treats. It is a chance to save lives and put the fun in fundraising — for less than the cost of a bag of Halloween candy. Protect a mother and her future newborns from maternal and neonatal tetanus through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

Is your club ready to join the Kiwanis family to support The Eliminate Project? It’s easy to participate. Here are five simple steps to plan your project. 
  1. 1. Pick a fundraiser. Collect funds door-to-door. Dance the night away alongside vampires and  werewolves. Host a trunk-or-treat. Enjoy an old-fashioned pumpkin pie bake off. The ideas are endless.
  2. 2. Set your goal. Estimate what you'll raise through your project then add in your expenses. This is your fundraising goal. 
  3. 3. Get supplies. Do you have everything you need to host your fundraiser? Order collection boxes  through the Kiwanis family store. Consider asking for donations from local businesses or even large chain stores. 
  4. 4. Promote your event. Print out Trick-or-Treat labels or make your own flier or display, letting everyone know about the upcoming event and how they can donate. Share the information with your sponsoring Kiwanis club.
  5. 5. Submit your donations. Send your donations to the Kiwanis International Foundation along with the Kiwanis-family giving form. If your club submits US$250 in donations for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF by December 31, 2016, your club will earn a banner patch. 
Thank you for committing to help eliminate MNT. Visit TheEliminateProject.org/trickortreat or contact campaign@theeliminateproject.org for more information.
