NOTHING BUT NETS CAMPAIGN
Join the NET Work that saves lives! Every 60 seconds a child dies from malaria. Yet it's a preventable disease spread by a single mosquito bite.
Team up with All-Star Steph Curry of Golden State Warriors. He donates 3 bed-nets to fight malaria in Africa for every 3-point shot he makes. He just broke the NBA season record with 272 3-pointers, so that's 816 bed nets and the season's not over! To see how you can join him, click here.
The NET Work project in the Bay Area is affiliated with Nothing But Nets, the UN Foundation campaign that has raised $50+ million since 2006 to provide 7 million nets in Africa.
