Malaria Kills. Save a life. Buy a net.

I am a team manager for the international Nothing But Nets campaign.  Nothing But Nets is a global, grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa.  Malaria is preventable, but infects nearly 500 million people each year and kills more than one million of those who become infected.  Ninety percent of deaths caused by Malaria occur in Africa where the disease is the leading killer of children.  Every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria.

Every $10 donation to Nothing But Nets goes directly toward the purchase, distribution, and educaiton about the proper use of an insecticide-treated bed net.  The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match each donation, net for net. Bed nets protect people from mosquitoes at night plus the insecticide on the net kills the mosquitoes.  Bed nets can prevent malaria transmission by 50 percent.

With your help, we can stop this deadly disease.  If you would like to sponsor my team by giving some money or if you would like to join my team as a member and encourage others to give to "BuzzKillers", click the logo in the top right corner.
