Help Becks Fight Malaria!
David Beckham has to score a new goal in an all-new cause. He’s currently promoting a new campaign for Malaria No More and is encouraging everyone to donate bed nets to people in Africa. One net costs $10, but you can go all out and donate 25 mosquito nets.
Long-Lasting Insecticide-Treated Bed Nets: LLINs work by creating a protective barrier against mosquitoes at night, especially from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. when most mosquitoes bite. Most bed nets can cover a mother and infant or a few siblings for up to three to five years. A net treated with insecticides offers about twice the protection of an untreated net. When enough people (about 70 percent) sleep under LLINs, entire villages, even huts and homes without an LLIN, can be made safer.
The TV ad shows David practicing some free kicks, which end with the ball hitting a man mowing the pitch. You can view the full ad here.
And in more David Beckham news, he’s also sent out a message asking for help in finding a little girl who went missing in Portugal.
