Why I donated my 9th birthday to Nothing But Nets

For my 9th birthday, I decided that I already had all that I needed I didn’t need any more presents. After all, I have learned that what you need is very different from what you want. For the past two years, I have helped my older sister serve meals and lemonade to Habitat for Humanity workers and gather donations for the San Antonio Food Bank. But, I have not helped do something so simple that it could save a child’s life - a child like me!

I know firsthand what being bitten by many, many mosquitoes feels like. I have traveled to the Caribbean, where mosquitoes are everywhere. We had to keep the screens shut at night and spray down with bug spray every day. I think everyone should be able to have one of those nets. Rather than get more things/toys for my birthday, I asked my friends for $10 checks (or as much as they wanted) so I could help buy nets to keep mosquitoes from biting children and adults.

Jack raised $460 so that we can deliver 46 nets to families who need them. Thank you Jack!
