Are you searching
for unique gifts for those on your holiday shopping list?
Instead of giving another unneeded tie or sweater, give the most
important gift of all: A gift that saves lives.
Make a gift to
The Eliminate Project in honor of a loved one, fellow Kiwanis
member or business associate—and save mothers and babies from
maternal and neonatal tetanus. And don’t forget to include The
Eliminate Project on your holiday wish list.
Gifts made in
honor of another include a special postcard to inform the
recipient of your generosity in their name.
This year make a
difference—give or ask for a gift that will help protect the
connection between a mother and child.
