THE STORY:

MALARIA NO MORE wrote -

Plan a summer get-together and help families in Africa sleep peacefully!

There are 99 days from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and chances are, many of us spend a lot of them outside – at the beach or on camping trips, at baseball games or backyard barbecues, on the golf course or tennis court – and wondering how best to exclude mosquitoes from our summer plans.

Few of us worry that a mosquito might end up killing us. But it is a worry that is pervasive in many African countries, where the deadly bite of a malarial mosquito is a nightly concern, and where a child under 5 dies of malaria every 45 seconds.

Malaria No More works every day to alleviate that concern, distributing insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families from mosquitoes and broadcasting high-impact public awareness campaigns to ensure families know how best to protect themselves from malaria.

This summer, we’re taking things up a notch, activating our grassroots supporters across the country, including nearly 300,000 Facebook and Twitter followers, to host casual house parties to celebrate the season and raise money in increments of $10 – the cost of procuring and delivering a mosquito net to a family – to support Malaria No More’s net distribution programs.

Your NetNite doesn’t have to be all about Malaria No More – whether you’ve been thinking about hosting a rooftop party, 4th of July bonfire, weekend picnic or barbeque or even a birthday, just spread the word about MNM a bit and ask your friends for some life-saving net contributions. Voila – you’re a NetNite host!
