In the midst of the holiday season, we think it’s more important than ever to do GOOD. For the next 12 days, we’ll be giving you ideas on how to do GOOD and make a difference in the world.
We start with NOTHING BUT NETS, a simple solution to saving lives. For $10 you can buy a net to protect a family from malaria. Read some of the facts the United Nations has compiled:
Fact: Malaria is preventable, but causes nearly 500 million illnesses each year and kills more than 1 million of those who become infected.
Fact: Ninety percent of deaths caused by malaria occur in Africa where the disease is a leading killer of children. Every 30 seconds a child in Africa dies from malaria.
Fact: Malaria is the #1 killer of refugees in Africa. Two-thirds of the 33 million refugees worldwide live in malaria endemic countries.
Do GOOD! save a life!
We’ll tell you about a new charity each day on our Facebook page. Do GOOD, give GOOD at the12 days of social GOOD.
