Thanks to Internet technology and social networking, I learned that today is End Malaria Day. Believe it or not, there are some easy yet powerful things you can do right now at your computer to support the cause. Here's a few that I've done in the past 15 minutes:
- Read up on World Vision's End Malaria Campaign here: http://www.endmalaria.org/index.php
- For just $6, you can buy a long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed net that will literally save someone's life: http://donate.worldvision.org/OA_HTML/xxwv2ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?item=1849059&go=item&
- Get inspired and check out this new book, End Malaria, a compilation of short essays by some of business's sharpest minds. For every paperback edition sold, $20 will go to Malaria No More, an organization committed to ending malaria by 2015.
- Copy and paste a link to this blog posting into your Facebook status (or put the info into an email and send to 10 friends).
Thank you for reading and for your willingness to at least consider how you can make a difference in the fight against malaria.
