Give Gift of Life With Cards that Fund Prevention of Malaria, the Number

One Killer of Children Under Five in Africa

NEW YORK, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Malaria No More today debuted its first-ever series of holiday cards, the purchase of which will buy insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families from malaria. The cards are available as an e-card for $10 (the cost of providing a bed net to a family in Africa) or in the traditional form for $13.20 (the bed net plus card and delivery costs) at http://www.MalariaNoMore.org.

Every 30 seconds a child in Africa dies from malaria. Over one million people are killed by the disease every year, and a staggering 350 million to 500 million people are infected worldwide. Yet, malaria is a 100% preventable and treatable disease.

Bed nets are a critical yet simple way to stop the spread of malaria, which is transmitted by mosquito bites. Bed nets are suspended around beds to provide a protective barrier at night when the vast majority of malaria infections occur.

Every holiday card purchased includes a donation of $10, which buys a bed net, delivers it to a family in need, and educates them on how to use it properly. A single bed net sleeps 2-3 people and protects them for up to five years.

The holiday cards present compelling photographs of African children and mothers from Tanzania and Madagascar, two malaria-endemic countries. The netting is visible in each picture, whether serving as a colorful background or as part of the shot itself, as in the one photo featuring a smiling girl peeking from behind her bed net.

Cards are available for a wide assortment of celebrations including Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years, as well as for birthdays and other special occasions. E-cards are also available, with the added feature that they may be purchased in honor of a friend or loved one. All cards can be customized and purchased at http://www.MalariaNoMore.org.
