Help Save Lives In Africa

For a kid, what’s more thrilling than pitching a tent and having a summer campout in the backyard? Not much. The sheer act of sleeping under a piece of pitched fabric allows imaginations to run wild, rules to be bent, and magic to happen.

In Africa, tents—often disguised as mosquito nets—allow for magic too.

A type of magic that’s a bit different.

The type that saves lives.

Each and every day 10,000 kids in Africa die of malaria—a curable, treatable disease. One of the easiest ways to prevent malaria is to ensure that each and every child has the privilege of sleeping under a $10 mosquito net. Along with increasing education and early treatment, Malaria No More is committed to providing every child in Africa with a safe sleeping space.

If it’s difficult for you to hop on the next plane to Botswana and start passing out nets, take one of these simple steps and do your part to support Malaria No More’s goal to eradicate this disease by 2015.

Text the word “net” to 85944 and donate $10 to supply one mosquito net and save the life of a child in Africa. Spread the word by liking Malaria No More on Facebook and following them on Twitter.

If you still haven’t pushed N-E-T on your phone yet, watch this celeb-studded PSA.  After all, who can say no to Orlando Bloom?

thank you very much for the article

very sad... Europe, USA, etc always have so much food, and so much which is thrown away every day. And other countries have famines, wars, catastrophes,... they would be happy if "we" could give them the overabundance.

"Only when the last tree has been cut down; Only when the last river has been poisoned; Only when the last fish has been caught; Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."
(Native American proverb)

"We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not yet learned the simple art of living together as brothers." (Martin Luther King)

Just for everyone's information: there is a dangue outbreak in Pakistan as well in addition to it being devastated with floods for the second year.

But if Africa grabs your attention, think also of the Somali drought and thousands dying as a result of starvation.
