#GivingTuesday: Gifts of the Heart

By Global Moms Challenge

November 23, 2015

We love the season of gratitude and giving thanks, especially because it reminds us that the giving season is beginning. #GivingTuesday is December 1. As you think about where to spend your holiday dollars, remember these ways to change lives for the better.

Nothing But Nets – TRIPLE donation on #GivingTuesday

Gift a Net 1

This holiday season Nothing But Nets is focused on protecting pregnant moms and children with its Gift a Net program – honor a friend, family member, or loved one by gifting a net in their honor which will be sent to a family in need, and the donation will be doubled. Furthermore, nets donated on #GivingTuesday will be tripled thanks to a generous partner. Give the gift that gives back and triple your impact in the fight to defeat malaria.
