Be a Champion
There are plenty of ways to get involved as a Nothing But Nets Champion. Here are a few examples of our supporters in action and the fundraising tools they use.
Our Champions are our boots-on-the-ground effort in the fight to end malaria. These incredible supporters take part in our most important fundraising efforts to protect families by donating insecticide-treated bed nets.
Team Bzzzkill Champions engage their communities and start fundraisers or advocacy events for nets in whatever way inspires them.
For some champions, raising nets can come in the form of sports tournaments. For others, it can mean hosting a net drive at a local school, or holding a haunted house. Basketball star Stephen Curry donates 3 nets for every 3 pointer he scores. Some people across the U.S. choose to donate their birthday to send nets.
From swimming pools, to college campuses, to summer camps, our Champions will use any venue to get the word out about the importance of bed nets in protecting against malaria to save lives.
Start your own fundraiser
Is there something you can do to spread awareness of malaria in Africa and send nets for families? Do you have an activity or skill that you are passionate about, like crafts, sports or theater? How can you engage your friends and family to raise nets?
Tracking your nets
It is easy to keep track of your fundraising goals when you use our NETraisers system. You can create a page to mark your efforts, interact with your supporters, and send updates on your progress. You can either start a team of your own, join an existing team, or sign up as an individual NETRaiser.
Already started a fundraiser? Make sure to create a NETRaiser page to chart your efforts, track your progress, and spread the word.
