Digging this infographic by Good To Be Home that shows you 50 Ways Your Home Could Help Save The Earth.
“I think, strangely, the one that irritates me the most is that there are 3,000 Africans, mostly children, going to die today of a mosquito bite. Malaria is the No. 1 killer in Africa. Do you know what it would take to fix that? A net. A bed net. It costs hardly anything,” he said.
– Bono (in an interview about the dire conditions facing Africa today.)
This is heart breaking and I couldn’t even finish reading the article without donating a net. No human being should have to die because of a mosquito bite that could have been prevented with a simple $10 net. If you want to help, donate a net here.

What is 2-1-1?
Every hour of every day, hundreds of people need essential human services – they are looking for training, employment, food pantries, help for an aging parent, addiction prevention programs for their teenage children, affordable housing options, support groups and ways of becoming part of their community. 2-1-1 allows people to give help and to get help.
2-1-1 is an easy to remember telephone number that, where available, connects people with important community services and volunteer opportunities. In 2010, 2-1-1 services in the United States answered more than 16.4 million calls. The implementation of 2-1-1 is spearheaded by United Ways and information and referral agencies in states and local communities. United Way Worldwide (UWW) and the Alliance for Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) strongly support federal funding so that every American has access to this essential service.
