People Much Better Than Me


Don't you miss sleep outs?

If you do, join thousands of Americans at Sleep Out to End Malaria on Saturday night, April 24, to help spread the word about malaria prevention and support Nothing But Nets. You'll be sleeping under nets, much like the 3 million-plus we've given out so far thanks to donors like you. Hey, no bug bites!

If you can't sleep out, please add your name to this message. If you're one of the first 2,500 to do it, European net manufacturer, Vestergaard Frandsen, will donate a long-lasting insecticide-treated net in your name to be hung over a child (sometimes two or three) in Africa. Plus, the message will go to U.S. congressional leaders on April 20 to show them we are committed to wiping out malaria deaths by 2015 and we want them to join us.

Go to nothingbutnets.net to find Sleep Out locations.

And won't your bed feel comfy the next night?
