The Eliminate Project
Mothers and babies at risk
Every nine minutes, an infant dies from neonatal tetanus. That short lifetime is marked by pain, robbing a mother of the chance to provide even the comfort of her touch. Most of these tragedies occur in countries that haven't yet eliminated maternal and neonatal tetanus.
With The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal and neonatal tetanus, Kiwanis International has joined forces with UNICEF to change the world for millions of mothers and babies.
Show your support: become a Walter Zeller Fellow
Donors who give US$1,250 to The Eliminate Project—paid one time or over two years—may become Walter Zeller Fellows (named in honor of the first donor to the Kiwanis International Foundation). Make a gift online—it's easy and secure. Or download The Eliminate Project gift or pledge form to make a gift by mail or fax.
Walter Zeller Fellows receive a commemorative lapel pin and a medallion to wear. Walter Zeller Fellows also receive a certificate and other forms of recognition to commemorate their support of The Eliminate Project.
Diamond-level lapel pins
For each additional US$1,250 that is donated in their name, Zeller Fellows receive a diamond lapel pin and a special drop-down tab to indicate their Diamond Zeller level.
