June 9, 2017

On October 31st, the world will welcome its 7 billionth child — the 7 billionth reason to take action in the fight against malaria. Did you know that around half the world is at risk of contracting malaria? Even though we have the tools to stop the spread of malaria, the deadly disease still kills a child in Africa every 45 seconds. 

With 7 billion people on the planet, the need to send nets and save lives has never been more pressing. Thankfully, hundreds of thousands of Nothing But Nets supporters across the U.S. and the world agree! For almost five years now, supporters, partners, and Champions have helped send life-saving bed nets to help protect million of families across Africa from malaria…and we’re not stopping until every family can sleep safely. Together — with your help and the help of your NETworks — we can be the generation to end malaria deaths for good

Will you join us? There are billions of reasons to join the movement to end malaria! 

P.S. Just for fun, check out this great video about the world at 7 billion from our friends at National Geographic:
