Bethel's Circle K Club Raises Money for UNICEF

Members of Bethel's Circle K club are helping UNICEF this week by taking part in the "6 Cents Initiative." They have spent the week asking others for loose change that will be sent to UNICEF to help individuals who have unclean water. Six cents will provide a child exposed to unclean water with a rehydrating salt tablet that will help them combat diseases they acquire from drinking contaminated water. As of Wednesday morning, students had raised around $200, an amount that will save more than 3,000 children's lives in third world countries. 

Circle K International (CKI) is the premier collegiate and university community service, leadership development, and friendship organization in the world. With more than 12,600 members in 17 nations, CKI is making a positive impact on the world every day.

Circle K clubs are organized and sponsored by a Kiwanis club on a college or university campus. CKI is a self-governing organization and elects its own officers, conducts its own meetings, and determines its own service activities.

CKI blends community service and leadership training with the opportunity to meet other college students around the world. Projects such as the Six Cents Initiative, CKI’s International fundraiser that aims to provide water to the 2.2 billion children worldwide who lack safe drinking water, bring CKI members together to make a difference in the world.
