In the month of August I'm looking forward to donating $0.50 for every comment to the ELCA Malaria Campaign, that I got to help support at the beginning of the month through my local community's Vacation Bible School (VBS) program.

Through the ELCA church, we raised dollars to help combat this preventable and treatable disease. One way to prevent this disease is to sleep in mosquito nets. The female mosquitoes are nocturnal, so if families sleep under mosquito nets the infected mosquitoes can't bite them. Each net costs $10, where half of the dollars goes toward the actual net and half towards education of how to use the nets. During VBS we raised over $450, or 45 mosquito nets, and through August's Comments for a Cause I'm planning on adding to that total.
What world-wide efforts do you support, either individually or through your church? Remember to Comment for a Cause!
