Nothing But Nets: Send a net, save a life

Nothing But Nets: Send a net, save a lifeNothing But Nets is one of the mission programs that our church has chosen to support this fall –  http://www.nothingbutnets.net/

Nothing But Nets provides mosquito nets to communities around the world, preventing the spread of malaria and saving thousands of lives. Here’s what their website has to say:

“Nothing But Nets is a grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa. While the UN Foundation has been working with the UN to fight malaria for years, it was a column that Rick Reilly wrote about malaria in Sports Illustrated, challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 for the purchase of an anti-malaria bed nets — and the incredible response from thousands of Americans across the country — that led to the creation of the Nothing But Nets campaign.”

Their website is a treasure trove of information – with videos of net recipients, interactive maps, stories about others’ successes in raising funds and awareness. I highly encourage everyone to check it out at http://www.nothingbutnets.net/

Ellsworth United Methodist Church will have a table set up at the annual Autumn Gold celebration on the Ellsworth waterfront on Saturday, October 3rd, handing out information and taking donations for the program. Stop by to learn more or show your support!
