Malaria No More

I am always looking for ways to help others. Whether it is fitness/health related or in another way. I recently found out about Malaria No More and wanted to share this info with you all.

Our Mission: Malaria No More is determined to end malaria deaths. A non-profit, non-governmental organization, Malaria No More makes high-yield investments of time and capital to speed progress, unlock resources, mobilize new assets and spur the world toward reaching this goal.

A child dies every 30 seconds from malaria—so every second counts. The fastest way for us to have impact is to blanket Africa with mosquito nets, effective medicine and targeted spraying to stop people dying from malaria. Our role as a catalyst is to maximize opportunities to save lives through communications, resources and investments. Each area of our work leverages the others to form a virtuous cycle for impact.

Want to get involved in the fight against malaria? There are many ways to make a difference! Here are some ideas to get you started:

Donate $10 Mosquito Nets
Providing a $10 mosquito net is the easiest, but most effective way to protect African families from mosquitoes that bite at night and transmit malaria.

A $10 mosquito net can protect a child and its family as they sleep, the time when most malaria-spreading bites occur. The tragedy of malaria can be transformed into our generation's greatest triumph—the ending of malaria deaths—with a simple act of compassion. Make your mark on the fight against malaria with the gift of mosquito nets.
If you can help out with $10 please do so today. Just go to and donate!! You CAN make a difference in someone's life!!
