Did you know that every thirty seconds a child in Africa dies of malaria? At least 1.5 MILLION people die of malaria each year, and 70% of all malaria deaths are children under the age of 5. All because they do not have access to adequate medicine and cannot afford even the simplest and most effective basic precaution against infected mosquitoes -- treated bed nets.
For $5 you can buy a latte at Starbucks or a couple of tracks off of iTunes. Or you can buy a treated bed net and help save the life of another human being.
Please help us, the Twitter Tornadoes, raise money to combat this deadly scourge. Donate $5, $10, or more, or help spread the word through your own Facebook or Twitter account. Every dollar helps, and every voice spreads this message further.
Remember, $5 may buy a moment's pleasure for you, or it can buy a lifetime of health for someone else. What's your choice?
