The Eliminate Project
Through The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis Club of Port Huron and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus—a deadly disease that steals the lives of 34,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year.
Mothers and babies in 18 countries are depending on Kiwanis. They’re waiting for us to fulfill our pledges—so we can turn promises into funding; funding into vaccines; and vaccines into lives saved and futures protected. The end of this disease means the beginning of better health for so many of these families.
Shoe Collection: Every 5 Pairs of Shoes Saves 1 Baby’s Life!
Kiwanis Michigan is working with Funds2Orgs, the leading shoe drive fundraising social enterprise in North America, to raise money to help eliminate neonatal tetanus. The shoes are sent to 25 developing countries across the globe and help to build businesses by refurbishing the shoes. These shoes are available inexpensively to people living in certain countries.
All kinds of shoes can be donated at the sites below. Each pair should be rubberband together and placed in the collection box. No holes in the soles, please!
