World Malaria Day 25 April 2013‏

What will you be doing on April 25th, 2013?

World Malaria Day is on 25th April each year and gives people the opportunity to raise awareness of malaria and do some fundraising for this worthy cause.

JCI is one of the biggest global partners in this campaign against malaria. So far JCI has donated over $750,000. The plan is to send 1 million nets by 2015, it does look promising.
NBNbanner1800%20website%20final

JCI organisations around the world been working incredibly hard to reach this goal. They have been hosting concerts, writing and selling books, designing calendars, starting employee giving campaigns at their workplace — all to send nets and save lives. In Japan, over 3,000 JCI members in 19 cities conducted their own Nothing But Nets activities to raise awareness and funds for malaria prevention. Within a couple of months these savvy professionals raised over $240,000! That will send 24,000 life-saving bed nets!

World Malaria Day was established by the World Health Assembly (WHA) at its 60th session in 2007. The day is commemorated every year on April 25 to create awareness about an ancient disease and the devastating impact it has on the lives of more than 3 billion people – half of humanity. World Malaria Day is an opportunity for the global development and health communities to intensify their efforts in providing access to affordable, safe and effective anti-malarial combination treatments worldwide, as well as protective insecticide treated nets and other preventive measures.

JCI Liverpool is participating by donating £7 (the price of one net) for each person who joins JCI Liverpool as a member.  Join us, and save a life today: http://www.jciliverpool.co.uk/join-us/membership-forms.aspx

How do you fancy drinking some free beer?! Then sign up to volunteer to work at the Liverpool Organic Waterloo Beer Festival next weekend.

The festival is run and organised by Liverpool Organic Brewery based in Bootle and one of the Brewers from there is the brother of Carla Burns, one of our founding Directors.

If any of you are interested, you get paid in free beer, free t-shirt, free entry to the massive beer festival set to take place in St Georges Hall in September and half price cheese and pies …(how could you possibly refuse)…..

All you have to do is turn up on time, serve beer (using taps on barrels, so no need to be able to pull a pint), be nice and not get too drunk. Also, JCI Members who sign up will also get a free bottle of LOB beer to take away.
