Rise to the Challenge of the 2012 Countdown to Congress

November 2, 2012

With the

2012 JCI World Congress in Taipei, Taiwan fast approaching, it’s time for JCI National Organizations to step up their efforts to send nets and save lives. 

Starting September 18, the JCI Nothing But Nets Countdown to Congress is back!  This is our chance as a unified global organization to make a lasting difference in the lives of many people in need throughout Africa. 

Every year, JCI challenges each JCI National Organization to raise one net per member before the JCI World Congress, and the same is true for 2012. Contributions made to the JCI Nothing But Nets campaign from September 18 to 18:00 GMT on November 18 will be counted for this annual contest. JCI President Bertolt Daems and a special guest from the UN Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign will recognize the JCI National Organizations that meet this goal during the November 20 JCI Morning Show in Taipei, Taiwan. 

So get out those credit cards and flash some cash in the next 60 days to increase your commitment to fighting malaria. Be sure to make your donations through Crowdrise under your JCI National Organization’s team. Encourage your friends, family and fellow JCI members to donate, because even though the challenge is for one net per member, more donations means more lives saved. 

Remember, a child dies of malaria every 60 seconds, but it only takes US $10 to send a net and save a life. Over these next three months, save those children and their families from this deadly disease by participating in the 2012 Countdown to Congress. You can make a difference for millions across Africa. 

Refresh your knowledge about JCI Nothing But Nets and how the campaign saves lives everyday.
