Usher Launches Malaria Campaign

Usher is the latest celebrity using his star power to front a worthwhile foundation. He's teamed up with the United Nations drive to fight malaria in Africa.

Usher and the United Nations Foundation just launched the Nothing But Nets campaign, urging underprivileged youths to become more pro-active and make a difference in global issues.

Usher says, "I am proud to be a part of an exciting partnership with the United Nations Foundation and its Nothing But Nets campaign. This initiative sends an important message: youth, regardless of their backgrounds, can make a difference in this world by taking action through service to save lives. Anyone can make a difference. All it takes is $10 to send a net and save a life."

The initiative aims to raise money to prevent African kids contracting the deadly disease by providing more mosquito nets to civilians. Malaria is usually spread by mosquito bites. Your $10 will not only provide families with nets, it will also serve to educate them about Malaria!

The concept is simple: sent a net, save a life. You're $10 will go a really long way, so if you can, please donate! For more information about the campaign or to find out how you can donate, check out
