You’ll swap me 2 NBA tix for a $10 bed net??

Just got word from UN Dispatch that Nothing but Nets and the NBA have teamed up for a great cause:

On World Malaria Day last spring, the late Ken Bacon wrote movingly about the deadly nexus between refugees and malaria, and about how insecticide treated bed nets can dramatically reduce malaria deaths.

Our friends at Nothing but Nets have been on this for a long time.  And as regular readers know, Nothing But Nets was inspired by a column in Sports Illustrated written by Rick Reilly.  Well, today, Reilly is back on the case.  And this time, he lets us know about a special holiday offer between Nothing But Nets and the National Basketball Association. The bottom line is this: a $10 donation buys a bed net, and as a sweetener, it also buys you two tickets to an NBA game.

So, get out that dusty Warriors jersey and donate already, before the tickets are gone!
