Nothing But Nets is one of the charities that I personally support every year. For as little as $10, I can provide an insecticide impregnated bed net for a family in Africa. While Ebola has the nation’s attention right now, Malaria is still a serious concern.

Three Things You Can Do to Help Nothing But Nets:
- Send a Net – For as little as $10, you can help make the difference between life and death. A net can be purchased, delivered, and education provided on its use for a family. Consider purchasing nets instead of White Elephant Gifts or Holiday Gifts this year Send a net >>
- Join Team Bzzzkill – Rally your friends, family, neighbors, church or scouting group, or little league team to raise funds to send nets. Start a fundraiser >>
- Advocate for Nets- Let your member of congress know that fighting malaria is a priority and raise awareness. You can make your voice heard on Capitol Hill and make use of social media. Look up your member of Congress – you can find their website on Senate.gov andHouse.gov – and find your elected officials’ Facebook page link or Twitter handle. Then send a tweet or post on their Facebook page encouraging them to take action in the fight against malaria!
- Call or write your members of Congress – Not into social media? Advocate the old-fashioned way. Click here to enter your zip code and get links to find your elected officials’ phone number and address. Unsure of what to say? Here are some tips on how to write your member of Congress, as well as some key advocacy talking points to help you along during a phone call.
