How to Help: Be a NETvocate
Since 2006, Nothing But Nets supporters have been sending nets to save lives and sharing their stories to spread the buzz about the movement to end malaria. In seven years, Nothing But Nets supporters have raised nearly $45 million to send more than 7 million life-saving nets throughout Africa.
Now, we’re spreading the buzz in new ways to make an even bigger NET impact -- like bringing the Nothing But Nets message to new audiences, including decision-makers on Capitol Hill with NETvocacy.
It’s all about spreading the buzz! Whether you’re in your hometown, church, school, or on Capitol Hill, NETvocacy is about educating your friends, family, and government about the movement to end malaria. There are many different ways to express your support -- it can be anything from meeting with your representative, speaking out, writing letters to your congressman, promoting an issue over dinner with friends, or even wearing a t-shirt that makes a statement.
How do I become a NETvocate?
We each have a role in the fight against malaria. Joining Nothing But Nets allows anyone -- from students to CEOs -- to send nets and save lives, and to raise your voice to ask our government to do the same. With your help, we can spread the buzz on Capitol Hill, letting decision-makers know that you care about saving lives by preventing malaria, so it should be important to your representatives in Washington too.
Our NETvocates are asking the U.S. Government to continue working alongside the United Nations through successful initiatives like the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
PMI and the Global Fund are making an impact in the fight against malaria -- they are two of the largest supporters of global malaria prevention and treatment programs. With American support, PMI and the Global Fund have distributed more than 160 million bed nets.
What are you waiting for? Sign our pledge to be a NETvocate today -- and stay tuned for more ways to get involved.
