Make A Difference With Compassion International This World Malaria Day!

Posted by in Everything Else on / 0 Comments
Now you see me. Now you don’t. Maybe you missed me, but you sure don’t miss the angry red welt rising on your shoulder, marking my presence.
If you live in the United States, you probably don’t think much of me, beyond lamenting my frustrating fascination with your blood every summer. But in other countries, especially ones in Africa and Asia, thinking about me isn’t optional. Not it you want to live.
Every 30 seconds, a child dies of Malaria, thanks to me. That’s over 655,000 people dead every year. The worse part? Malaria is preventable. They don’t have to die.
I can’t help my nature; I’m a mosquito, and my sole interest in life is drinking your blood. I don’t have a conscience. You can’t reason with me. Unlike Mr. Cullen, I have no interest in going vegan.
So what can you do? Plenty…
Partner with Compassion International and fight back against disease and death by providing insecticide-treated mosquito nets for bed, education on prevention and treatment to parents and communities, and treating those suffering from Malaria, Chagas Disease, and Dengue Fever.
How can I help?!
Every $20 donation pays for 2 treated mosquito nets, and saves lives. You can make your donation here. No amount is too small, and every little bit helps! Got $100 you can spare? That’s 10 treated mosquito nets! Only have $1 to give? Give it, and know that your contribution is just as meaningful to a child living in the shadow of mosquito-born illness.
