A child dies from Malaria every 2 minutes.
Many of us in the United States are not aware that this is such an epidemic. An epidemic that is preventable. Malaria is transferred through mosquito bites and the best solution known to date, has been the use of netting to protect adults and children in cities and regions that are most prone to these type of mosquito bites.
The United Nations Foundation has been working with the UN to fight Malaria for years, but it was Rick Reilly’s column about malaria in Sports Illustrated challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 to send insecticide-treated bed nets, that led to the creation of the Nothing But Nets campaign in 2006.
Nothing But Nets is a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness and funding to fight malaria, a leading cause of death among children in Africa. Nothing But Nets allows everyone from students to CEOs, bishops to basketball players to join the fight against malaria by donating here.
Nothing But Nets along with Steph Curry recently launched the #CallYourShot campaign where one can film themselves calling and making a trick shot, challenging 3 friends and then donating. Being that nets are the life savers in this campaign it was meant to be for Bownet Sports to team up with Steph Curry and the Nothing But Nets foundation on the #CallYourShot campaign.
We make it even easier for you to help end Malaria. We will be donating in YOUR honor for every time that you post a video making any kind of shot into any Bownet product.
