Last week I had the opportunity to speak with a group of over 150 grassroots activists, partners, donors and celebrity ambassadors who had traveled to Washington D.C. to meet with their members of Congress and advocate for continued support for malaria prevention and elimination programs. Their passion was electric, illustrating their resolve to see this horrible disease eradicated for good. I believe that with champions like these, we will be the generation to #endmalaria. #nbnsummit #malaria #malariaelimination @nothingbutnetsofficial
God has always surprised me in this long term personal and community journey seeking to understand and respond to the needs and issues present in our global community in redemptive, restorative, sustainable, and empowering ways. Over a decade ago I read @reillyroad article in @sportsillustrated about the power of bed nets while we were seeking to help respond to the global HIV/AIDS pandemic. A brilliant piece by one of my favorite writers of all time captured me. And to have a chance to have lunch @nothingbutnetsofficial #nbnsummit with him this week and some amazing @cornerstoneu students talking about our shared passion to really #endmalaria was beyond my wildest dreams. His enthusiasm for our very grassroots @nightofnets campaign inspired us. And I was reminded again of the power and community of sport we must harness. And the joy God brings into our lives when we follow His callings to partner with Him in Kingdom work. And yep, Rick Reilly said “We gotta do the C for Cornerstone, right?” #nightofnets @unfoundation
New Yorkers for continued US Leadership in the fight against Malaria. When a Congressional District Office authors a World Malaria Day Resolution...we applaud you! Let us spare millions of lives from untimely deaths. Thanks to the office of Rep. Gregory Meeks @repgregorymeeks NY 5th District! A child dies every 2 minutes and this can't continue... #NBNSummit #NothingisImpossible #jciredefined #Excelsior #JCINewYork
#Repost @unfoundation(@repost_via_instant)Since 2000, global efforts against malaria have saved an estimated 6.8 million lives. The U.S. government is the largest contributor to programs that combat malaria through its support for the @globalfund and the President’s Malaria Initiative, as well as the work of @unitednations agencies like the @WHO, @UNICEF, and @refugees. Today, advocates from the UN Foundation’s @nothingbutnetsofficial campaign - together with actress and champion @alexandradaddario and cofounder @reillyroad - visited with @repjohnblarson and other elected officials to advocate for continued U.S. funding to end malaria. . . . #EndMalaria #NBNSummit #SDGs #GlobalGoals.
It was an honor to join the Nothing But Nets’ panel on Raising the Youth Agenda. Andrew Rabens, Special Adviser for Global Youth Issues, @statedept and Noelle Nachreiner, President, Junior Chamber International USA (JCI- USA) and myself, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Youth Caucus of America, Inc. discussed how youth advocacy and engagement is a unique and critical component in the fight to end malaria. We see young people as change-makers, those who have the ability to inspire action and generate movements through their creativity and passion. #nbnsummit #yca
