BENEFITING: United Nations Foundation
My name is Ashley R. Crawfurd. I am a full-time student at Fresno State, Go Bulldogs! I am pursing a career as a teacher for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing. I am a very active and involved individual. I love all sports ranging from the ordinary to the extreme. I also have a passion for American Sign Language and Deaf culture. My family and friends are the backbone to my life; they continue to give me love and support that drive me to pursue my dreams to the fullest. My biggest passion and goal in life though, is to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
I am apart of Fresno State's American Sign Language Club, Tom's Club, and now the Nothing But Nets Organization (NBN). NBN is a "global, grassroots campaign to raise awareness and funding to fight malaria, a leading cause of death among children in Africa. Nothing But Nets provides everyone – students to CEOs, bishops to basketball players – the opportunity to join the fight against malaria by giving $10 to send a net and save a life."
Recently, I was apart of the famous Comedian/actor, Jonah Hill's (you may know him from movies such as Super Bad and Get Him to the Greek) team in the Mozilla Firefox Challenge. The challenge was a huge success, and Jonah Hill did an awesome job raising over $65,000 for the NBN organization! Sadly, the challenge is over, but to keep the fundraiser running I have started a new campaign for NBN for 2012. My goal is to try and raise $50,000 for the year - that's equivalent to 5,000 nets!
Today you can make a difference by donating $10! For every $10 donated a net will be purchased and delivered to a child in Africa to fight against malaria. Please donate what you can and make a difference today!
Thank you for your time and donations. Have a wonderful day, and God Bless!
