Online Soccer Academy World Juggle-a-thon to benefit Nothing But Nets on World Malaria Day
Every 45 seconds a child dies from Malaria. That is why we created the Online Soccer Academy World Juggle-a-thon to benefit Nothing But Nets. Soccer players, fans and coaches will juggle to get better, juggle to save lives at 6pm their standard time on April 25, 2011 - World Malaria Day. Prior to 4/25 they download a pledge sheet on our website and collect pledges and donations. After the OSA World Juggle-a-thon participants mail in their donations to us. We mail them back a shirt and any incentive level prizes earned. Then all the proceeds are donated to Nothing But Nets. For every $10 raised Nothing But Nets provides a bed net to person in Africa. This keeps mosquitoes off of them at night, keeping them from getting malaria and basically saving their life. Juggle to Get Better, Juggle to Save lives.
