This week, the world celebrated World Malaria Day – a day to call attention to the deadly, yet preventable, disease of malaria. A child dies every two minutes from this disease, but it doesn’t have to happen. You can save lives by just donating $10 for a life-saving mosquito net. These nets have already saved over 6.5 million lives and you can help save even more. Just #CallYourShot.
Our friends at Nothing but Nets and basketball phenom, Stephen Curry, are asking everyone who wants to play a role in ending malaria to film themselves calling—and making—their best, most creative, most outrageous shot. Then challenge your friends, family and co-workers to do the same and post the video online.
The final step—and the most critical—is sending lifesaving bed nets to families in need so they can protect themselves from this deadly disease. So donate at www.CallYourShot.org.
Several of you have submitted your own shots via social media with the hashtag #CallYourShot already. Take a look at the cool shots and submit your own today. Don’t forget to use the hashtag and to challenge your teammates to participate and to donate.
