By: Mark Leon Goldberg on December 12, 2008 Among all the holiday shopping deals, online and in stores, the one gift that never changes in price or impact is a $10 donation to send a bed net to protect children in Africa from malaria. The United Nations Foundation’s grassroots campaign Nothing But Nets is always trying to send nets and save lives, but for this holiday season, the need for nets is more urgent than ever. The recent violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo has caused thousands of people to flee to neighboring Uganda and settle in refugee camps there. Already crowded camps and the current rainy season in Uganda means even more nets are needed every day for children and their families. As always, Send a net. Save a life. At NothingButNets, you can donate a net in someone’s honor and send an eCard, or sign and print a card we’ve made especially for the holidays!
