Nothing But Nets – “The UN Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign seeks to reduce the devastating effects of the disease through low-cost, long-lasting bed nets. They’ve already helped cover seven nations, including Zimbabwe and Mali, and have their sights set on more. Nothing But Nets engages a broad grassroots constituency in this effort through partnerships with Sports Illustrated, the United Methodist Church, the NBA and WNBA, Major League Soccer, and VH1. Go here to see downloadable banners and a widget for the game to use on your site.”
