Nothing But Nets is a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness, funds, and voices to fight malaria. In 2006, sports columnist Rick Reilly wrote a column in Sports Illustrated challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 to send insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families from malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Since then, with the help of partners and supporters, Nothing But Nets have raised over $65 million to help deliver 12 million bed nets to families in need, along with other crucial malaria interventions like diagnostics, treatment, and training of healthcare workers.
Every two minutes, a child dies from malaria, a disease caused by a single mosquito bite. Malaria is preventable and treatable with a life-saving, insecticide-treated bed net and other malaria prevention tools and treatment. Half of the world’s population is at risk of contracting malaria, and refugees, pregnant women, and children are most vulnerable to this disease.
Bed nets are a simple, costeffective solution to keep families safe from malariacarrying mosquitoes. Combined with household spraying, malaria testing and treatment, and vaccines in development, we are making progress in the fight to end malaria for good.
Nothing But Nets work with UN partners to protect refugees and families who are most vulnerable to malaria. Some have fled conflict, others have been displaced by natural disasters or political unrest and have left everything behind. After all they have endured, these families shouldn’t have to fear a deadly mosquito bite.
Being able to offer you, our customers, great sleep while offering a family in sub-Saharan Africa safe sleep speaks to us on a deep level. And even though we are small scale startup, together with you we want to commit to social responsibility from the start, it is part of our DNA.
