    JULY 2013

  • District Project One baby dies every

    9 minutes from neonatal tetanus

    On average, health education and a series of three

    doses of tetanus vaccine cost $1.80

    Kiwanis will help save or protect more than

    61 million mothers and their future babies

    28 countries remain at high risk for

    MNT

    160 babies die each day from neonatal

    If a baby gets MNT, it will lose its mothers touch

    No baby should lose their mothers touch

    $1.80 can stop this.

    The Two Dollar Plan:

    If each person In the district brings in two dollars, we

    will raise a total of $24,600

    That is:

    13,667 vaccinations

    Estimated 13,667 lives saved

    For the price of a cup of coffee

    Why The Eliminate Project?

    The answer to this is, every 9 minutes,

    one child or mother dies from What is known as

    MNT (Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus). This painful

    disease steals the lives of 60,000 babies from

    their families. In 30 countries around the world,

    MNT takes on a large toll because of deliveries

    taking place in unhygienic circumstances and

    because no vaccination for the deadly infec-

    tion is available. The effects of this infection is

    excruciating. Tiny new born babies suffer re-

    peated, painful convulsions and extreme sensi-

    tivity to light and touch, turning the joy of child-

    birth into a tragedy.

    What we need to do as key clubbers, is to change this. As

    part of the largest student led organizations in the world, we can

    ELIMINATE this deadly infection. With just 3 does of a 60 cent

    immunization, we can protect mothers who will in turn protect

    their future offspring. Thats just $1.80, about the price of a small

    coffee from Starbucks, or a small burger. Together with our

    Kiwanis counterpart and UNICEF, we can end something that

    can be prevented so easily.

  • The simple idea of gathering over a million meals, or saving thousands

    of lives in a week because of the money raised from the Eliminate

    Project could not exist in a world without Key Club International. This

    week reminded me that I am truly part of something bigger. KCI makes

    a difference every day. In a single week I had the chance to

    experience it all. As a first year ICON attendee I believe that this

    experience will be ingrained in my mind for the rest of time.

    Cameron Franco

    Going to my first Key Club International Convention I didn't really know

    what to expect. I didn't know what I was going to be doing, or the

    many new people I would meet. I now know exactly what Key Club is,

    the Key Club International Convention taught me how vast this

    organization really is and the impact that we can make. If I had to sum

    the International Convention into one word, it would be, unforgettable.

    This is what the Key Club International Convention meant to me, and I

    can't wait to go to Anaheim next year! Jacob Goodwin

    Key Club's International Convention in Washington DC was truly magnificent! I had the opportunity to, not only learn more about the

    organization that all the attendees hold near and dear to their hearts,

    but learn more about myself and who I am! Through different

    workshops I was able to learn about some independent service

    projects which I plan to take back to my home club! And words don't

    describe how honored I am to have been elected as an International

    Trustee for the coming year! I know there is no such thing as perfect,

    but for me, Key Club's International Convention was about as perfect

    as something can get! Avery Hitchcock

  • International Convention at Washington D.C., in short, changed my life. Not only was I able to reconnect with friends from other districts I made

    at last year's International Convention, but I was also elected as one of

    the eleven International Trustees serving on the International Board.

    Through rigorous caucus rooms, timed speeches, and questions upon

    questions from every member at convention, KCDC 2013 was quite an

    experience that I would never trade for anything in the world. Alberto Berisbetia

    ICON, an international convention that brings servant leaders from

    all around the world to one place. Better yet, it brings together a

    family of service, an family that I am so proud to call myself apart of. I

    made some great friends, exchanged awesome projects, traded

    pins, and helped make over a million meals for the hungry around the

    world. I shared my deepest secrets to people at the beginning of this

    trip didn't even know existed, and acted as support to so many that

    had been just like me, so I guess you could say I had a good time. -

    Michael Blejski, Indiana District

    This was my first ICON and hopefully it won't be my last. ICON was amazing! From the Kids Against Hunger volunteering, learning about the

    Eliminate Project, and making new friends I didn't want the week to be

    over. I'm so happy I went to ICON its not only an experience I'll never

    forget but I know the friendships I've made the past week will last a

    lifetime. Samantha Miara
