Malaria kills one child every thirty seconds, but the disease is both preventable and treatable.
Watch the video, then learn how easy it is for you to help give a child the gift of growing up.
The bed net needed to save a child's life costs just $10, including transportation, distribution and education on its use.
Just $10 --- the price of a couple of gourmet coffee drinks.
By acting now, your gift of $10 or more can help UNICEF save twice as many children. $50 will now save ten children instead of five; $500 will save one hundred.
Act now. Here's more:
Malaria No More's mission is simple: to end deaths due to malaria. This fall, Malaria No More has presented the U.S. Fund for UNICEF with a Challenge Match Grant of $1 million dollars to support the purchase of bed nets, their delivery,and education on their proper use in malaria-endemic countries in Africa. The grant will match each donation made to battle this childhood killer, dollar for dollar, thus working twice as hard to support UNICEF's malaria prevention and treatment programs.
Okay, then --- game on.
Nothing but net.
