From the Spread the Net website:
The goal: to cover Africa in blue bednets and stop death by malaria.
It raises funds so that Unicef can procure and distribute bednets at no costs to the families receiving them.
Every $10 collected will purchase a bednet for a child in Africa.
It's about all of us saving all those children in Africa.
It’s a simple, effective, inexpensive way to make a BIG difference.
It’s about life and death.
1 net. 10 bucks. Save lives.
1 net at a time!
10 bucks can buy you a couple of cappuccinos or a bednet to protect an african child for up to 5 years.
It’s war on malaria.
It’s something you can do right now.
This sounds like a great idea, and I'm planning to buy several nets in family members' names as Christmas gifts this year.
