Still need a resolution for the New Year? How about saving lives? That’s right – you can send a net and save a life this New Year’s Eve! The United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets is rolling out the orange carpet for the biggest night of the year, and YOU are invited to the celebration.
On December 31st, join Nothing But Nets and UN Foundation staff at Skye Lounge in Washington, DC to watch the ball drop, and a portion of your ticket price will go towards the purchase of a bed net to protect a refugee in Africa from malaria. General admission is $75 for the open bar and appetizers between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m., or you can include dinner as well for $100.
Click here to buy your tickets now, and be sure to use the promo code: NBN2010 so that $10 of your ticket cost sends a net and saves a life!
Not in the Nation’s Capital for New Year’s Eve? Don’t worry! You can still help us raise money for the remaining 160,000 bed nets needed to protect refugees in Africa by the New Year. Put on your party dress or suit, open a bottle of bubbly, and host your own life-saving celebration. Or ask a local bar to donate a portion of its sales to Nothing But Nets for insecticide-treated bed nets. Show your family and friends how easy it is to save lives in 2010!
Start your New Year’s off right by helping us to drop the New Year’s Eve ball on malaria. For all you locals, come join the party at Skye Lounge (19th and I street NW). Together, we can raise a glass of orange champagne and spread hope to refugees in need.
Let the countdown begin. You don’t want to miss it.
