It’s the New Year—a time to reflect on our lives and set meaningful goals to improve our health and happiness.
The Eliminate Project can be a powerful motivator to help you keep your New Year’s resolutions.
So as you consider personal improvements for 2014, make a New Year’s resolution that doesn’t just improve your life. Set a goal to raise funds for The Eliminate Project—and save the lives of women and babies too.
Live simply: Cut back on things you don’t need and donate what you would have spent to The Eliminate Project. (For US$1.80—less than the cost of a latte—you can protect a woman and her future babies.) Keep track of the lives you’re protecting.
Get moving: Plan a run or walk for The Eliminate Project as a way to kick off your own exercise plan. Get your whole club involved!
Think spring: Start the New Year with something big. Plan a spring fundraiser for your club. One idea: plan an event or activity focused on Mother’s Day.
