Malaria is one of the deadliest diseases on the African continent, especially for young children. Every 60 seconds, a child dies from malaria.
It doesn't have to be that way. The truth is, malaria is a preventable disease.
Congress will soon be debating next year's budget. Now is the time to weigh in and urge your elected officials to help protect millions of families from malaria by providing simple and effective malaria prevention tools like insecticide-treated bed nets.
It's time to make saving children's lives from this deadly disease a real priority.
Send a letter to your Members of Congress today and tell them to act to save lives from deadly malaria.
Dear [Decision Maker],
As someone who is dedicated to ending malaria deaths, I strongly urge you to make the fight against malaria a priority.
Through cost-effective solutions, like insecticide-treated bed nets, and U.S.-led global partnerships, we are making progress in the fight against malaria. Malaria not only kills hundreds of thousands of people each year, but has significant effects on economies worldwide. With continued support from Congress, we can save lives by preventing malaria and strengthen our allies in Africa.

I am a supporter of Nothing But Nets -- a global, grassroots campaign to raise awareness and funding to fight malaria, a leading cause of death among children in Sub-Saharan Africa. I know there are a lot of priorities competing for your attention, however, this is a particularly important cause to me and many others in my community and around the world, and I ask for your support.
Please -- use your voice in Congress to support programs and organizations working to end deaths from malaria.
