mosquitoSome of you may be familiar with the name Stephen Curry, a point guard for the Golden State Warriors.

Many of you are familiar with the mosquito-borne disease malaria, an entirely preventable and treatable disease, responsible for approximately 627,000 deaths in 2012.

But did you know that the two have something in common? Stephen Curry, the 26-year- old professional NBA player is entering into his 3rd partnered Three for Three challenge. Curry partnered with Nothing But Nets yet again for the 2014-2015 NBA season, vowing to send 3 mosquito bed nets to Africa for every three-pointer he makes.

In his 2012-2013 season Curry scored 272 three-pointers for the Golden State Warriors (or should we say for Nothing But Nets, or, better yet, families in need in Africa?). Those 272 three-pointers put 816 mosquito nets up on the board.

Stephan Curry and The Challenge and How to Get Involved

In the 2013-2014 Curry scored 261 three-pointers, providing 783 nets. Now, for the 2014-2015 season, the Golden State Warriors have taken the challenge one step further. They are going to match Curry’s donations, making it six nets for every three-pointer he scores. Curry is showing us all that it is possible to make a difference every day. We’re all pulling for you, Stephen!
