March of Dimes
Every day 1 in 8 babies born in the U.S. arrive too soon. Circle K members help by raising funds annually for March of Dimes programs to help prevent prematurity. The March of Dimes currently focuses on raising awareness of prematurity and reducing the rate of premature births. CKI members collect money to support the March of Dimes and participate in the annual March for Babies, which usually happens in late April.
UNICEF works in more than 190 countries and territories to improve the lives of children—helping children meet their basic needs and expanding their opportunities to reach their full potential. Across the globe, wherever vulnerable children are struggling to survive, UNICEF is there with medicine, vaccines, clean water, nutrition and educational opportunities.
CKI is excited to announce a new five-year signature project, in partnership with UNICEF, called WASH. WASH is the collective term for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. WASH aims to provide education, awareness, and funding to supply clean drinking water and sanitation education to schools and children in underdeveloped regions. Since 1990, UNICEF and partners have played a key role as 2.6 billion people gained access to safe drinking water. Still, nearly 1,000 children die everyday due to a lack of safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene. Our signature project efforts will target Haiti’s emergency needs to reach 200,000 people in cholera-affected areas with a complete WASH response package; supporting emergency water access interventions for 70,000 people in drought-affected areas; and providing 60,000 internally displaced people with alternative sustainable sanitation strategies.
