Eliminate Week—an especially fun and easy way to support The Eliminate Project just before Mother’s Day—is just around the corner! From May 5–9, help us raise awareness and funds to help end maternal and neonatal tetanus around the world.
If you haven’t planned anything yet, you still have a few weeks left. Here are some quick and easy ideas your club can do:
Host a hat day. Ask students to donate $1 to wear a hat during the school day. This project is virtually effortless but can raise a lot of money quickly.
Collect spare change. Go around to lunch tables and ask for spare change. Tell students that they’re helping to protect mothers and babies around the world.
Host a tournament. You can do anything from ping-pong to Wii bowling. Simply charge an entry fee and give away a prize, such as a donated gift card, to the winner. All of the profits will go to The Eliminate Project.
Sell flowers. Contact your local florist and buy carnations to sell at school. Encourage students to buy them for their friends, teachers and mothers. You can download tags to attach to the flower on page 6 of the Eliminate Week toolkit.
We have an easy-to-use graphic you can use to promote the event on Facebook. We encourage you to switch your Facebook cover photo to this graphic to show your support. More ideas and resources can be found at www.keyclub.org/eliminateweek. Have fun and good luck!
