Save a Life. See a Game. promotion last December. NBA Cares, a founding partner of Nothing But Nets, and HP helped launch the promotion which gave a pair of tickets to an NBA game for every donation of at least $ 10 to the Nothing But Nets to send life-saving bed nets to protect more than one million refugees in Africa from malaria.

This award is proof of the power of partnerships. The NBA, its teams, players, and fans helped us raise our voice and spread the buzz about sending nets and saving lives, said Adrianna Logalbo, Director of Nothing But Nets.

BACKGROUND

Every 45 seconds, a child dies from malaria — which is easily prevented through the use of a long-lasting, insecticide-treated net. The nets create a protective barrier against mosquitoes at night, when the vast majority of malaria transmissions occur, and are the most cost-effective method of preventing the spread of the disease. One insecticide-treated net can protect a family of four, and lasts up to three years. A net costs just $ 10 to purchase, deliver, and to educate the recipient on its proper use.

To date, Nothing But Nets has raised more than $ 33 million to distribute over 3.5 million nets to families throughout Africa.

Nothing But Nets is currently working with singer-songwriter and actress Mandy Moore, and PSI to send a net to every family who needs one in the Central African Republic, by the end of the year. Malaria is endemic throughout the Central African Republic year-round and is the leading killer of children under the age of five. For more information, please visit http://www.NothingButNets.net .

Inspired by sports columnist Rick Reilly, hundreds of thousands of people have joined the campaign that was created by the United Nations Foundation in 2006. Founding campaign partners include the National Basketball Associations NBA Cares, The people of The United Methodist Church, and Sports Illustrated.
