Mosquito Nets

Posted on Updated on

“If you think you are too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito” ~Betty Reese

My mosquito net arrived in the mail today. Yay! Doesn’t take much to get this one excited. It’s navy green (I bought it from Army Surplus World, which was a great deal by the way… if you ever need a mosquito net?), and super lightweight. I called them and explained my urgency (aka my last-minute everything) and received it in three days instead of the promised five.

While on this subject, you should check out the Nothing But Nets campaign and consider donating $10 for a mosquito net that could save a child’s life. Come on, give it a click, it’s worth at least checking out, right?

If you haven’t clicked yet for whatever reason (cynical, lazy, uninspired, procrastinating or whatever yours is), listen to this 7-year-old (she was 5 in the video), who so far has raised $43,000 for malaria nets. If she doesn’t inspire you, then I guess you are a lost cause 😉
