Seven months ago I introduced our community to a book that means the world to me. The book is End Malaria: Bold Innovation, Limitless Generosity, and the Opportunity to Save a Life.
As I said in my original post, I'm a social worker and an activist - I wouldn't say, "Buy a book. Save a life." unless I believed we could literally save lives.
I'm part of END MALARIA because I believe in it.
Every 45 seconds a child dies from malaria and it's very easy to fix - it's a matter of will. Are we willing to do it? Our goal is to end malaria in Africa by 2015. I think it's possible.
Here's the bottom line:
I'm one of 62 contributors who were asked to write a short piece about the topic of Great Work – how to do more of the stuff that matters and less of all the other stuff that fills up your day.
The book costs $25 and $20 is going directly the cause - that’s 100% of the Kindle price, and 80% of the hard copy. The remaining $5 covers production costs.
None of the contributors or the publishing house are taking any money from sales. Amazon makes NO profit.
$20 buys two nets. We've raised $300,000 so far and we're moving closer to our 2015 goal!
The book is only available through amazon.com.
I'm proud to be part of this and I want to invite you to be a part of making malaria history! Buy a book or 20. The essays are powerful and inspiring. It's a wholehearted WIN!
