Do something scary good with your Halloween haul

Nov 16, 2016
Kiwanis-family clubs around the country made a difference this Halloween because they chose to collect coins instead of candy. And all of those coins—which have added up to more than US$2.9 million since 2011—will protect women and babies from maternal and neonatal tetanus.

It’s now time to transform those funds into something even better than Halloween treats: A way to protect women and their future babies. There are two easy ways to send in your donations once they are collected:

  1. By credit card: Call 1-800-KIWANIS, ext. 236
  2. By check: send a check or money order (made payable to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund) and your completed gift form to:
          The Eliminate Project: Campaign Office
          Kiwanis Children’s Fund
          P.O. Box 6457 - Dept #286
          Indianapolis, IN 46206 USA
          ATTN: Trick-or-Treat
(Note: Kiwanis clubs should not submit funds through Coinstar machines.)

To ensure your club receives proper recognition for its efforts, be sure to write your club name or club number on the memo line of the check and mark “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF” on your gift form. Clubs that submit more than US$250 by December 31, 2016, will receive a special banner patch.

Thank you for helping make this the best Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF year yet and for making a difference for moms and babies!

P.S. Share your stories and photos with us at, Facebook and Twitter or mail your letters, drawings and photos to the campaign office. And don’t forget to transform your hard-earned funds into lifesaving vaccines.
