My friend, Michael Bungay Stanier, of Box Of Crayons, is a very creative, brilliant author/speaker/coach. In September, he published a book called End Malaria, a collection of useful, provocative and challenging essays on how to do more Great Work. The list of contributors is amazing, from Tom Peters to Brene Brown, Johan Lehrer to Pam Slim.
Why is it called ‘End Malaria’? Well, that’s where the magic is…
$20 from every book goes to Malaria No More to help fund their fight against malaria, a disease that kills one child every minute. Think about it. That means every book you buy saves a person’s life. How often do you get to do that???
Here’s what Michael had to say about it and about how you can help:
30,000 Nets So Far
So far we’re raised more than $300k. One mosquito net costs $10, so that’s a lot of nets – and a lot of lives saved.
Once last push! And you can help me.
With World Malaria Day just a week away (April 25th), we’re going to do one final push.
Can you help me sell more books, raise more money and save more lives?
Anything you can do on April 25th to help get the word out would be fantastic.
