The Tremendous SWAT Team is on a mission to eradicate malaria, one bed net at a time. Our team is made up of employees of Tremendous Entertainment, Inc, a television, home video and music production company AND employees of The Family Entertainment Catalog, a fundraising company that offers popular movies, music, software and books to help schools and non-profits raise money. All of us live and/or work in Minnesota where the mosquito grows to such amazing proportions it's now recognized as the state bird. Fortunately, we're blessed with the resources to combat this pest on our home turf. From our many travels around the world, we know others aren’t as fortunate. Malaria kills 1.5 million people a year and 70% of them are children. We don’t pretend to know all there is to know about this disease but we do know that malaria is a disease that can be beaten particular if people have access to adequate protection, like something as simple as a bed net. The Tremendous SWAT Team is up for the challenge! With your help, we can help supply bed nets to families in Africa. Every $5 raised buys a bed net and saves a life. It’s that simple. The SWAT team needs your help. Together, we really can make a difference!
