KIDS NEED KIWANIS
Kids are curious, lovable and hilarious. They are also wild, impatient and vulnerable. Kiwanis is looking out for kids in every corner of the globe with over 600,000 volunteers who serve their communities through local clubs. We are generous with our time. We are creative with our ideas. We are passionate about making a difference. And we have fun along the way.

At the Pacific Northwest District level, Kiwanis supports the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program in Seattle, the Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program in Portland OR, and the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Program in British Columbia and the Yukon.
At the International level Kiwanis sponsors The Eliminate Project, and has joined forces with UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT). This deadly disease steals the lives of nearly 49,000 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. It will take US$110 million — and the dedicated work of UNICEF and every member of the Kiwanis family. This project will reach the poorest, most neglected mothers and babies with additional lifesaving health care, and means the beginning of better health for many families
Every year, more than 600,000 Kiwanis-family members in over 80 countries give more than 18.5 million volunteer hours and millions of dollars for community service projects. Since 1915, Kiwanis has made a lasting, worldwide difference for future generations. For more information about Kiwanis, see Kiwanis International.
