Donate Your Birthday

June 8, 2017

When you think about birthday traditions, what comes to mind? Do you think of cake, candles, balloons, gifts, parties, and…nets? No, not basketball nets or fishing nets, but bednets!

Instead of celebrating your birthday with cake and confetti, step outside of the box and welcome a new tradition to honor your special day—donating your birthday to help the fight against malaria.

A child dies every 60 seconds from malaria, but this year you can get involved and send a net to help save a life.

As you celebrate yet another year of getting older and wiser, you can make your birthday extraordinary by adding a new tradition to your birthday celebrations—nets.

Pledging to donate your birthday will help support Nothing But Nets and protect children from malaria – so they can celebrate their birthdays too. Your friends and family can honor you with a simple $10 contribution that sends an insecticide-treated bednet to a family in Africa.

Donating your birthday is simple and rewarding! All you need to do is:

  • Fill out the quick pledge form. We’ll send you a reminder before your birthday and help you set up your Donate Your Birthday fundraising page. 
  • Share your Donate Your Birthday page on Facebook, Twitter and other social media to let everyone know you’re serious about protecting lives (and that you’d love for them to make a gift in your honor!).

We hope to see nets included as your birthday tradition this year!
