Christmas cards supporting The Eliminate Project

Members of the St. Louis Center Aktion Club in Chelsea, Michigan take pride in their efforts to help protect women and babies from maternal and neonatal tetanus. In anticipation of the holiday season each year, members design artwork for a Christmas card. The cards are sold in packages of 10 for US$10 each with proceeds benefiting The Eliminate Project.

“This project gives each member a great sense of pride knowing that they are able to make a difference for families around the globe,” says Kelly Flaherty, Special Projects Assistant for the center.

Once printed, members gather to assemble the cards and envelopes. It is one more way these individuals are making a difference through their club–and bringing hope to children in need.

The Aktion Club, which is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Chelsea and the Kiwanis Club of Manchester, was chartered in 2010. It is comprised of men and women with intellectual and developmental disabilities who live at the St. Louis Center.
