Fundraising ideas from Ohio If you are thinking about fundraising for The Eliminate Project, here are some ideas to start with. These ideas have been used for other projects in addition to The Eliminate Project. Be creative and develop some of your own! 1. Use a local restaurant night to capture 10-20% of meal proceeds from the community. This is also a great place to promote membership and/or the Eliminate project. Some Wendy’s offers 15% for groups holding meetings at their restaurants. 2. Work with your SLP programs - K-Kids, Builders, Key Club, Circle K and have joint projects, such as a spaghetti dinner, car wash and bake sale, etc. When you establish a new fund raising project try to make it something that can continue after The Eliminate Project. That way you will have additional funds for other community projects. In the news and at The White House!

In the field
Below is an update from Dr. Robert Allen, MD, one of the site-visit delegates. Read more about their trip on The Eliminate Project blog. Yesterday, Dr. John Button and I traveled to the remote village of Fogue, Guinea to witness tetanus vaccinations. What I saw was amazing. Hundreds of women walked for miles to receive their vaccinations. Each of the women I spoke with knew more about tetanus — its effects, causes, and prevention — than any average person you will meet in the United States. The Eliminate Project's efforts are paying off. The vaccines are arriving, women and babies are being protected, and the most important element — education — is having a tremendous impact. Now think about what else this project is doing:    It's training health care workers in these villages It's creating a dialogue among women about healthy deliveries It's providing a model for other problems to be resolved ELLEN’S TIP OF THE WEEK Club anniversaries are a great time for a club to consider being a Model Club and make an initial gift from the club treasury or club foundation to The Eliminate Project. Consider sending a congratulatory note to the club president a couple of months before a club’s anniversary and request a special gift for The Eliminate Project, being sure to mention these tributes in district communications as they come in.

After visiting a hospital in Mali, Guinea, I know much work needs to be done until every baby in this country has a fair chance at life. But after watching The Eliminate Project in action, I know these problems can be solved.
