How could we let a disease that was eradicated in the United States in 1951 kill 2,200 people every day in Africa? Did you know most of these 2,200 daily deaths are children?

The efforts of Malaria No More through the help of American Idol and many other supporters have made tremendous headway. But we all can play a tremendous role.

Malaria-carrying mosquitoes are most prevalent at night when children sleep. You can make a $10 tax-free donation and you could save a life. Your $10 buys a mosquito net to go over a child’s bed or crib. These nets keep children from night-time bites. The best way to treat Malaria is to prevent Malaria and we have already seen big results. Nine African countries have reduced Malaria deaths by 50%. You can make a difference.

It’s so easy to donate. You can do it using your mobile phone. All you have to do is text “SWAT” to 85944. You will receive a message where you confirm your donation. By texting SWAT, you can save a life in Africa.
