Four Million Mosquito Nets Save Lives

When a sports writer asked his readers to donate $10 to buy mosquito nets to help combat the daily death of 3,000 children from malaria, Nothing But Nets  grassroots campaign began. From their website, Nothing But Nets is a global, grassroots campaign to raise awareness and funding to combat malaria, one of the largest killers of children in Africa. With a $10 contribution, Nothing But Nets provides individuals – from CEOs to youth, professional athletes to faith leaders – the opportunity to join the global fight against malaria by sending a net and saving a life.

The organization has distributed over 4 million nets thus far.
