FYI -- info forwarded from Ben Kingston of Netting Nations:
My name is Ben Kingston and I'm a co-founder of Netting Nations (www.nettingnations.org), a Manhattan Beach-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to combat the global epidemic of malaria through the purchase and distribution of long-lasting insecticide treated mosquito nets.
On September 25th, 2008, we and others are hosting a fundraiser. Netting Nations' goal will be to raise enough money to purchase nets for over 1,700 children, most of them homeless and/or orphans, who live on the streets of Nairobi, Kenya. NetLifeAfrica, who is also sponsoring this event, will be distributing their nets in Senegal by riding town-to-town and also rendering medical care and assistance as needed.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note about the upcoming event and would be more than thrilled if you could pass along the word to your organization. Please check out the event at www.drumstobeatmalaria.org.
