what can you do to help
What can you do to help?
  • Spread the word about maternal and neonatal tetanus to your club members and to everyone in your school.
    • To do this set up a table with brochures about maternal and neonatal tetanus, sell the ELIMINATE bracelets, and just ask for donations.
  • ELIMINATE pins:
    • You will need: Lifesavers (individually wrapped), ʺIt's a boy!ʺ and/or ʺIt's a girl!ʺ ribbon, small safety pins, a hot glue gun with glue sticks or super glue.
    • Description: Hot glue/super glue a boy or girl ribbon on the wrapper, then run the safety pin through the wrapper on the other side to make a wearable pin which you can distribute or sell to raise money for the ELIMINATE Project.

What is it?
  • In order to stay healthy, it is important to drink 1.5 to 2 liters of clean water every day.
  • More than 2.6 billion people lack even the most basic sanitation facilities and safe drinking water sources.
  • One in five children in developing countries is susceptible to diseases caused by bacteria that grow in unsafe waters
  • 5,000 die every day.
  • The most common diseases lead to diarrhea and dehydration, which can lead to death if untreated.
  • At a cost of only 6 cents:
    • a mixture of sugar and salt called oral rehydration salts (ORS) offers the most effective and cheapest way to save lives during dehydration.
  • CKI is working with UNICEF to provide these rehydration salts to those in need.
what is it cont1
What is it? (cont.)
  • Designed to help children get the rehydrating salts they need to survive dehydration spells.
  • With the money raised, UNICEF also is working to provide long-term solutions for the problem
    • which includes providing clean water resources through the installation of filtration and sanitation systems.
    • Water filters installed in schools and communal areas can benefit entire communities.
  • Ultimately, the goal is to educate individuals on safe water and hygiene practices, and to provide supplies to produce safe water supplies for communities.

  • Have a table set up at school with information about Six Cents Initiative with a water bottle that is filled with dirt and water and when talking about it tell them how awful it would be to have to drink this, and then have another water bottle that is empty for people to make donations.
  • Circle K clubs and members wishing to make donations to the “Six Cents Initiative” should direct checks to the Kiwanis International Foundation (3636 Woodview Trace, Indianapolis, IN 46268) with a notation that it is for UNICEF/water and sanitation programming.
