A child dies from Malaria every two minutes. That is a stark reminder of just how deadly mosquito-borne diseases are, and just how much work we need to do. While we at Mosquito Joe are focused on making your outside fun again, we also want to raise awareness and give back. During Mosquito Control Awareness week, we will be partnering with Nothing But Nets to do just that.
Nothing But Nets is a campaign created by the United Nations in 2006. Inspired by sports writer Rick Reilly, this campaign has raised over $60 million to help provide mosquito nets for families in need.
The first step in our partnership was reaching out to our customers for donations to this worthy cause, setting a goal of 500 nets. With each $10 donation, an insecticide-treated bed net will be provided to a family in sub-Sahara Africa who are at risk for the disease and lack the resources to protect themselves. Mosquito Joe promised to match donations to deliver 1,000 nets and boy did you guys come through! We have already surpassed our goal and our customers are continuing to give. If you would like to donate please visit this page to do so.
The second part of our partnership happens during Mosquito Control Awareness Week (6/25 – 7/1) when we will be donating $10/one net for every customer who signs up for service. If you have ever considered a mosquito service for your yard, now is a great time!
