This year 10% of our proceeds will go to the Against Malaria Foundation.
Why Malaria? - "Malaria is one of the biggest disease killers in the world. It kills at least 1.5 million people every year. 70% of the deaths are children under 5. That's equivalent to one child dying of malaria in Africa every 30 seconds, or 7 jumbo jets full of children disappearing from malaria every day. We can make an enormous difference with the money we raise. For every 1 million (US$1.75m) we raise we will stop 15,000 people from dying. We can do this very simply: through the purchase and distribution of bednets (mosquito nets)." (Info from the Against Malaria website)
