  • Set the date to become One, Kiwanis

    The one day each year that you circle in red on your calendar, empty your schedule and save for service has been set for 2012: Kiwanis One Day will be Saturday, April 21.

    Take note, Kiwanis trivia buffs: To avoid conflicting with Easter and Passover, the 21st will be the latest in April that Kiwanis One Day has ever occurred. Check out how the entire Kiwanis family—Kiwanis Kids, Builders Club, Key Club, Circle K, Aktion Club and Kiwanis clubs—joined forces in the 2011 large-scale service project; the new video is online now at www.kiwanis.org/oneday.

    For Kiwanis One Day, any project—big or small—is worth tackling, but you’ve only got eight months to get ready. Go!

  • New resources to help you spread the word about The Eliminate Project

    Maternal and neonatal tetanus affects many, many mothers and babies in the poorest countries of the world, and it’s going to take the help of many, many people to eliminate it from the world. To help you reach those many people, Kiwanis is constantly creating resources for your campaign, so keep visiting the Resources page [www.TheEliminateProject.org/resources] of The Eliminate Project website to find out what’s new.

    Here’s what’s new this month:
    Turn a can into a coin collection container using the club coin can label. Print them off and start collecting. Every contribution counts!

    Download The Eliminate Project logos in your preferred format: JPEG, GIF or EPS. Be sure to follow the logo guidelines when placing the logos in your promotional materials.

    Look and sound professional as you educate groups about The Eliminate Project using presentation resources, including the new PowerPoint template. Add photos and copy from the Talking Points and you are ready to present!

  • October is the month of the young adolescent

    October is the month of the young adolescent, an annual international collaborative effort of education, health and youth-oriented organizations like Kiwanis. During October the National Middle School Association brings together a wide range of organizations to focus on the needs of this important age range, ages 10 to 15. October would be a great time to charter a Builders Club, the Kiwanis Service Leadership Program for middle school and junior high students. Learn what makes this group tick and help young adolescents become caring and compassionate citizens through Builders Club. Starting a club is easy: go to www.kiwanis.org/charter.
