ELCA Malaria Initiative--Final Push to $4 Million

We are so close - but we need you.
Dear friend,

I am thankful for your support of the ELCA Malaria Campaign and ask that you make one more special gift this year. We have less than two months to raise $1 million -- and we need you.

Today, thousands of children in Africa will contract malaria. It will start with a fever, headache and vomiting. But within just a few days, the disease can turn deadly -- all because of the bite of a mosquito.

A child dies from malaria every 60 seconds. Most are children under the age of 5.

Our church is making a difference. It has been less than two years since the ELCA Malaria Campaign joined the global movement to fight malaria, and we have already seen a reduction in the number of deaths from this preventable, treatable disease. Thank you for being part of this!

We have Donate buttonmore to do. This year, our goal is to raise an additional $4 million toward our goal of raising $15 million by 2015. Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we just passed the $3 million mark.

We are so close -- but we need you. 

Give now
 to help reach our goal. Your gift will ensure that the work of the ELCA Malaria Campaign continues. We need to raise $1 million more by the end of our fiscal year -- January 31 -- so that malaria programs in Africa that are just getting off the ground will continue to gain momentum. I know we can do it!

Your gifts are critical -- families in Africa will benefit from your support.
