About Us

We can be the generation to defeat malaria.

Nothing But Nets is a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness, funds, and voices to fight malaria. In 2006, sports columnist Rick Reilly wrote a column in Sports Illustrated challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 to send insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families from malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Since then, with the help of our partners and supporters, we have raised over $60 million to help deliver 10 million bed nets to families in need, along with other crucial malaria interventions like diagnostics, treatment, and training of healthcare workers.

Who We Are

Over the years, we've engaged hundreds of thousands of individuals to help achieve the United Nations and the global health community's goal of ending malaria in this generation. We work with students, churches, local businesses, and a diverse group of partners, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Basketball Association's NBA Cares, Junior Chamber International, and Sumitomo Chemical Corporation, among others, to rally the health, business, and sports communities to help us fight malaria.

What We Do

We raise funds to send life-saving bed nets and other malaria preventions and treatment to families in need. Our supporters advocate to their members of Congress in support of UN agencies, the President's Malaria Initiative, and The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to ensure critical funding to defeat malaria worldwide. And we work to inspire new people and partners to join the fight.

Who We Help

Every two minutes, somewhere in the world a child dies from malaria. We work with UN partners like UNICEF and UNHCR to protect refugees and families who are most vulnerable to malaria. Some have fled conflict, others have been displaced by natural disasters or political unrest and have left everything behind. After all they have endured, these families shouldn't have to fear a deadly mosquito bite. We are committed to protecting them so they can be healthy and thrive.

Our Partners

Our strength lies in our partners, from celebrity ambassadors and grassroots leaders to professional sports leagues, faith-based and civil society organizations, corporations, and foundations. These partners help us continue our life-saving work and expand our reach, and ensure that every $10 donation goes directly to the purchase, distribution, and education on the proper use of a bed net.
