Bite Back! I just did!

 

What is Bite Back?  Let me tell you.

 

 

Directly from BooMama’s Post:

 

This Friday (tomorrow), April 25, is World Malaria Day. And through the Bite Back campaign, people can give a one-time donation of $10 and provide a mosquito net for a child – or a family, if they’re all sleeping in the same place – who otherwise would have no protection from this completely preventable disease. That $10 will also provide education and treatment for people who are already sick with malaria.

 

Remember, this is a one-time donation, not a long-term commitment.

 

So here’s how you can help.

 

Click here to donate $10 that will provide a mosquito net for a child (you can donate more than that if you feel led). Each net lasts three years, so for $3.33 a year – less than a penny a day – you can save a child’s life.

 

And if you just can’t spare $10 right now but still want to help, then link to this post from your blog. Help to get the word out and encourage your readers to give.

 

 

BooMama has provided the banner code for us (you too) HERE.   She has challenged her readers (which I am one of) to donate 50 nets, in 50 hours.   She has doubled that number as of this post, and she still has until 9pm central time Friday night to go.  Let’s help her TRIPLE that number!

 

I encourage you to read through her post, and go to the Bite Back site and donate the $10.  What a wonderful – life saving gift!

 

And, if you’re one of my readers and you donate, (besides letting BooMama know) will you also leave me a comment here on this post, letting me know that “YOUR IN” as well?  Thanks!
