2018 Christmas Fundraiser for AMF

THE EANZ 2018 CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER HAS FINISHED!

Together we raised

$48,291.54

Which has all gone to the Against Malaria Foundation to fund insecticide treated bed nets. 
This will mean 16,000 nets will be purchased and distributed to families in need, protecting about 32,000 people from contracting malaria while they sleep for 2-3 years. 

This is about 26 millions nights sleep free from malaria, and according to GiveWell’s current best guess, will prevent thousands of cases of malaria, and prevent approximately 8 children from dying. 

You can still donate to the Against Malaria Foundation, or EANZ’s other highly effective partner charities here:

Effective Altruism NZ's 2018 Christmas Fundraiser for
the Against Malaria Foundation

The Effective Altruism NZ Charitable Trust (EANZCT) is doing a Christmas fundraiser for the Against Malaria Foundation (AMF) this year. The trustees of EANZCT, and 12 other wonderful donors have provided matching funds, so the money you donate will be matched up to a total amount of

$17,300!

That means, that if you donate to the EANZCT’s Christmas fundraiser, your donation will be doubled, until we get $17,300 of donations, making a total of $34,600 going to the Against Malaria Foundation.

This is genuine matching – this money won’t be donated unless others donate! If no one donates to our fundraiser, the donors have said the $17,300 of matched funds will go to:

Savings: $7,900
Holiday: $6,205
Alcohol and chocolate: $2,089
Gambling: $250
Gym Membership: $256
Driving Lessons: $250
Crypto-assets: $350

So please donate to make a big impact, and prevent our donors from gorging themselves on too much alcohol and chocolate!

Why the Against Malaria Foundation?

Malaria currently kills approximately half a million people each year, mostly children under 5 years old. Malaria rates plummeted from 2000 to 2015, but since then progress has stalled in recent years due to lack of funding for interventions such as bed nets. We know how to reduce the harm of malaria, but more money is needed.

AMF provides insecticide treated bed nets that effectively prevent the spread of malaria. AMF is GiveWell’s top rated charity, and one of the world’s most effective ways to prevent illness and save lives. And at only around $3 per net, a small amount goes a long way.
