It will take all of us. Eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus is no small feat. But each fulfilled pledge to The Eliminate Project brings us closer to ridding the world of this preventable disease.

Fulfilling a pledge is an accomplishment, and it deserves congratulations. If you, your club or your district have fulfilled your pledge, we encourage you to celebrate and share your victory with the world and fellow Kiwanians. Gather your club members, print out these celebratory signs, snap your best photos, share on social media and send a copy to childrensfund@kiwanis.org so we can post it on our Facebook page. Let the world know “We Did It!” and that your fulfilled pledge has saved or protected the lives of mothers and babies worldwide.

We’re celebrating fulfilled pledges at the Kiwanis International convention too. If you’re attending, keep an eye out for the blue “We Did It!” and “I Did It!” ribbons on individuals' nametags in Paris. If you see a ribbon in person or a “We Did It!” photo online, share thanks and congratulate the individual or their club for a job well done.

Thanks to fulfilled pledges, we have raised US$70.7 million in cash gifts for The Eliminate Project. We’re excited to celebrate the pledges that have been fulfilled, but also anxious to fill the remaining gap. Help the Kiwanis family finish the fight!
