I get e-mail from Nothing But Nets, in preparation for World Malaria Day, April 25, 2014:
As you know, World Malaria Day is April 25, and supporters will be taking action throughout April to help us send 25,000 bed nets to families in Africa.
Our champions are holding basketball tournaments, soccer games, and running in 5K races to get their friends, families, and communities involved in the fight against malaria.
Megan Walter, our supporter from Richmond, Virginia, organized a unique event in her hometown. She partnered with her local trampoline park to jump for nets – and they raised $10 for every jumper who participated. The event was a huge success, raising more than $2,000 to send 200 bed nets to families in Africa. What made it even better is that Megan had fun doing it!
There are lots of ways to raise money and send nets while doing what you love. Every $10 you raise helps us purchase and distribute life-saving bed nets with our UN partners.
What sports challenge will you do this April?
Join us in sending nets and saving lives for World Malaria Day! Together, we can defeat malaria.

You noted, of course: No call for more DDT. No slamming of science, scientists, medicine, medical workers, or Rachel Carson and environmental organizations.
This comes from people who fight malaria for a (meager) living, on non-profit basis, without political bias. In short, these people need help, and consequently have no use for the pro-DDT, anti-Rachel Carson, anti-WHO, anti-science hoaxes.
Please give. Every $10 can save a life.
