Rocking - and Buzzing - the Kasbah with Virgin Unite and Variety
Submitted by Chris Helfrich on December 5, 2011
Last week, Nothing But Nets spread the buzz about the movement to end malaria at Virgin Unite’s "Rock The Kasbah 2011." Virgin Unite is the nonprofit part of the Virgin Group -- you know them for Virgin Airways, Virgin Mobile, Virgin Records, and more. Virgin brings together the people with life-changing ideas and adds in some of their entrepreneurial magic to help build a better world for everyone. At Rock the Kasbah 2011, we were lucky to meet some of these great people who support great causes!
Mozzie, our mosquito mascot, buzzed around the red carpet, strutting his stuff along with many of Hollywood’s biggest stars and philanthropists. Spreading the buzz with new people at big events is a great opportunity for Nothing But Nets -- the more people who know how easy it is to send nets and save lives, the better!
It’s not every day that Mozzie is livestreaming to thousands online or rubbing elbows (or wings) with the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Kevin Connolly, Monique Coleman, and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Mozzie and I heard performances from nine-time Grammy award winning artist Mary J Blige, O.A.R. and the Pussycat Dolls -- just a few of the celebs who donated their time to help our friends at Virgin Unite.
We want to give a special shoutout to our partners at Variety for inviting us to be part of the seriously buzz-worthy Rock The Kasbah 2011. Thank you!
