- Malaria is a preventable disease.
- Ten dollars buys a long lasting net that protects a child for 3-5 years.
A “Mosquito Net Tea Party” was held in San Diego, California on Sunday, November 12th, 2006 at the home of Antonia and Bob Davis. This tea party served as a fund raiser for Project Mosquito Net. Project Mosquito Net is supported by the Power of Love Foundation (www.poweroflove.org), a San Diego based charity. Approximately 50 people enjoyed a wide variety of teas along with a large selection of vegan desserts. A folk trio and a classical pianist entertained the guests. All of the food and entertainment was donated. Every dollar raised will go towards purchasing distribute mosquito nets to children vulnerable to Malaria in Mbita, Kenya this Spring of 2007. It was a pleasant surprise for Antonia and Bob to find the tea party raised $1773.00! The tea party was so well-received that another fund-raising event is already in the works!
We are still raising funds for the 2007 net distribution so please consider donating today to this worthy cause.
