Instead of sending a gift or flowers to that special woman in your life this year, please consider making a donation in her honor to The Eliminate Project through the Kiwanis Club of Tysons, VA. All honorees will receive a personal card sent to their home address.
With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 60,000 innocent babies and a significant number of women each year. The effects of the disease are excruciating — tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch.
To eliminate MNT from the Earth, more than 100 million mothers and their future babies must be immunized. This requires vaccines, syringes, safe storage, transportation, thousands of skilled staff and more. Kiwanis International has raised US$110 million dollars in cash and pledges to fund the remaining effort by UNICEF to eliminate this disease.
One mother and their future babies will be saved from this terrible disease for every $1.80 you donate today! The deserving woman that you designate will receive a Mother's Day card via US Mail showing that a donation has been made in her honor and providing them with information about this project.
As your donation is being made to an IRS 501(c)3 organization (Kiwanis Foundation of McLean, VA) and no monetary benefit is being received, your PayPal e-mail receipt may be used as proof for a charitable tax deduction.
Thank you in advance for helping to eliminate MNT with your generous donation! Click below to donate using your credit or debit card or PayPal account.
All donation honorees will receive a personal card, but we cannot guarantee that donations received after May 1st will reach the recipient in time for Mother's Day on Sunday, May 8.
