save a life for $10.

April 25th is World Malaria day. There is a worldwide campaign to deliver enough anti-malaria nets to needy families to eradicate malaria. A child dies every 30 seconds of malaria in Africa alone. That is a shocking statistic that is so easily remedied.

Malaria is both preventable and treatable. For $10, a family can receive an anti-malaria net and instruction on how to properly use it. The UN Foundation is working with a number of partners to make this happen. If you choose to donate $10, 100% of your donation will go to providing a net. Zero percent to the dreaded "administrative overhead".

Please join me in this simple but significant endeavor. Ten bucks, people.

And GUESS WHAT?! Ya get a freebie if you play the game they have up there right now. Eliminates all excuses.
