Save a Life (no, really!)

The People Speak has started a Nothing But Nets team! Nothing But Nets is a grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria. It turns out that a $10 bed net can accomplish this task. So simple: stop mosquitos from biting and prevent malaria, the number 1 killer of children in Africa. The campaign started with an article written by Sports Illustrated writer Rick Reilly. His article resulted in $1.2 million (that's right, million!) raised. He was lucky enough to travel to Nigeria to see the nets distributed. Click here for an article in SI about his trip.
