Nothing But Nets

Saw a commercial for this charity. Seems like a worthwhile donation to buy mosquito nets for the Chad refugees. It's a United Nations Foundation charity, rated 4 star and 100% of your $10.00 donation goes to buy nets, distribute them to families and provide education on the proper use of the nets.

Absolutely - I have suggested this in lieu of "what to bring" - and mentioned this foundation some months back. Also, Bill & Melinda will match your contributions.

Nets help worldwide where those nasty mossie are killing children especially.

I first became aware of this effort when Sport's Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly wrote a great column about the effort:
