“Spread the net” goal is to raise funds and distribute bednets in Africa to stop death by malaria.

Bednets are a physical barrier to the mosquito, which carries malaria. In  Africa, malaria is the largest single cause of death of children under 5 years of age. Pregnant women are also especially vulnerable.

Every $10 that UNICEF raises purchases a bednet for a child in Africa.

Here is a link to their website. They’ve included a mailing address where you can mail a cheque.
