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!

You're going to see this message every time you post a new pic. So, we're making the text really long so that it'll take you at least five picture uploads to read it all. Here's what we're thinking...While your first picture is uploading think about someone you want to kiss. When you upload your second pic think about one friend who you can beat in a race. On your third photo upload think about your favorite food that begins with the letter H. While your fourth picture is uploading think about how great it would be if you were a world class breakdancer. While your fifth picture is uploading try to think of the best candy to eat if you were a mime spending a month in New Zealand. If you upload a sixth and seventh picture please just read all of this again.
