The charity that I chose to fundraise for in November is Nothing But Nets. They combat malaria in Africa by providing children and families with mosquito nets and educating them about their proper use. The United Nations Foundation is also involved in this project as part of their trying to achieve their Millenium Development Goals.
"Every 45 seconds, a child in Africa dies from a malaria infection." This statement cuts me to the core. No child should be dying from something that is so easily preventable. If you would like to purchase a net for just $10, click here. Let me know if you do!
