Nothing But Nets

This is a faith-based ministry that hands out mosquito nets in Africa.  They were featured on Americian Idol last night and that the Bill Gates Foundation supports them. Yesterday, April 25, was also the first time that the United States has officially observed National Malaria Awareness day. This disease has been irradicated in the United States, but kills a child in Africa every 30 seconds. A simple insecticide-treated bed net, that costs $10 apiece, could cut that figure in half. The NBA is also supporting this! They are also up for a Webbie for their excellent web page.
