When I was younger, my Mom looked out for me. Despite the fact that I wasn’t interested in wearing a helmet every time I rode my bike or that embarrassing fuzzy hat when it was cold outside, I know now that she was doing her best to protect me. Mothers around the world are doing the same – and you can help them protect their children from malaria by sending a net and saving a life.
When Nothing But Nets Champion Mandy Moore was in the Central African Republic last fall, she said something that stuck with me: “Mothers here are like mothers anywhere.” No matter where you live – in Louisiana or in Liberia – mothers are doing their best to keep their children healthy, happy, and safe. So this Mother’s Day, I’m showing my love and appreciation for my Mom – and moms at the Bahn Refugee Camp in Liberia – with a card, a phone call, and a gift that saves lives. What will you be giving?
Send a net. Save a life. Together we can cover a continent. And to all the moms out there – Happy Mother’s Day from Nothing But Nets!
