Last year, I sponsored a fundraiser for the Against Malaria Foundation that pitted skeptics against Christians. The U.S. fundraiser raised $660 (US funds) while the Canadian-based fundraiser raised $1250 (Canadian funds). I plan to launch another fundraiser this year on Giving Tuesday (December 1). However, my goal this year is to double both totals. And to that end, I’m putting my money where my mouth is: last year, I donated $500 to the Canadian total but this year I will up that to $1000.
As part of the promotion, today I interviewed Rob Mather, the founder and CEO of the Against Malaria Foundation. 100% of donations go to mosquito nets that save lives. It’s a phenomenal charitable organization and after you watch our interview (which is going online on Giving Tuesday) I think you’ll agree.
So please, consider setting aside some moola for this humble fundraiser so that you may give in the name of Christianity, humanist skepticism, or simply kindness. Together, we can make the world a better place, one net at a time! Remember, it all starts December 1st and it runs until Christmas Eve!
