About the Campaign
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 provides everyone – students to CEOs, bishops to basketball players – the opportunity to join the fight against malaria by giving $10 to send a net and save a life.
While the UN Foundation has been working with the UN to fight malaria for years, it was Rick Reilly’s column about malaria in Sports Illustrated challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 to send anti-malaria bed nets, that led to the creation of the Nothing But Nets campaign in 2006.
Over the years, the Nothing But Nets campaign has engaged hundreds of thousands of individuals to help achieve the UN goal of ending malaria deaths in this generation. We work with a diverse group of partners, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Basketball Association's NBA Cares, The People of The United Methodist Church, Vh1, Major League Soccer's MLS W.O.R.K.S., Boy Scouts of America, the Women's National Basketball Association, the Union for Reform Judaism, Usher's New Look Foundation, Junior Chamber International, and Orkin, Inc., among others.
The success of Nothing But Nets is a testament to the power of passionate people coming together to make the world a better, healthier place. You can save a family. Your church, school, or sports team can save a village. Together, we can cover Africa with life-saving bed nets.
How it Works
Nothing But Nets is powered by your passion; it works because you do! Grab your family, friends, and classmates and work together to spread the word, raise funds, and share stories.
Your $10 contribution goes towards the cost of purchasing a long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed net, distributing it, and educating communities on its use.
Nothing But Nets works with UN partners like UNICEF, the UN Refugee Agency, and the World Health Organization to purchase nets, transport them to Africa, and distribute them to families. Net distributions are typically part of a wider public health effort within a country coordinated by the Ministry of Health, the UN and other local and international organizations.
