Nothing But Nets

Nothing But Nets

On behalf of World Malaria Day (April 25), MLS WORKS and Nothing But Nets want you to help Cover Africa with life-saving bed nets!

By donating $10, you can help us send 25,000 bed nets to Africa and save a life from malaria, a disease that kills a child every 60 seconds. 

 

MLS WORKS will make a $10 donation for every save made during an MLS match throughout April.  Join us in the fight against malaria by giving $10 to send a net, and save a life.  

 

World Malaria Day is April 25, but you can support the fight against malaria all month long by competing to beat malaria.  Engage your family, friends and community members to join MLS by taking your own sports challenge.  No challenge is too big or small.  Every $10 you raise will help Nothing But Nets purchase and distribute life-saving bed nets with their UN partners.

ONLINE SOCCER ACADEMY WORLD JUGGLE-A-THON

On World Malaria Day, eleven (11) current and former MLS players will join the battle to beat Malaria as part of the Online Soccer Academy World Juggle-A-Thon.  

Soccer players of all ages are invited to join our MLS players by juggling at 6pm on Friday, April 25.  Players can juggle on their own or with their teammates, friends or families.  Prior to April 25th, jugglers can challenge themselves and others by raising much needed funds that allow Nothing But Nets to send assist families in need.  Every $10.00 raised will help protect families in Africa from malaria.  Check out our players that are juggling to save lives.  Learn more about the OSA Juggle-a-Thon.
