With recognition at the 2011 JCI World Congress in Brussels, Belgium fast approaching, the time is now for JCI members to step up the fight against malaria.
Make It A Million
Starting September 1, the JCI Nothing But Nets Countdown to Congress is back and the campaign is on the verge of reaching a whole new level. Contributions to the JCI Nothing But Nets campaign currently total USD $860,000 and every JCI National Organisation as well as each JCI member, is challenged to boost the campaign to one million dollars between now and JCI World Congress.
The Countdown to Congress award will be presented at the JCI Morning Show on November 4. 2011. JCI President Kentaro Harada will recognise the three JCI National Organisations that contributed the most funds to JCI Nothing But Nets throughout 2011.
Passionate JCI members should use these next months to step up and jump ahead in the race to send nets by taking your fundraising total to a new level. Encourage your fellow JCI members, families and friends to join the fight against malaria and celebrate with your National Organisation as you help Make It A Million. Let’s see if JCI UK can send some serious nets!
Buy Clics For Nets
Also at this year’s World Congress, JCI members can take part in another exciting project for JCI Nothing But Nets. From now through Congress, you can buy clics to raise money for mosquito nets. A clic is a multi-colored plastic building block used to construct different shapes and structures as a playful display of architectural creation. Each clic costs one euro, with a goal of raising one million euros by November 5. Each clic purchased will be used to build a colorful carpet at the entrance to the World Congress, with the plan of breaking the Guinness World Record for number of clics used to build one structure.
Purchase your clics for nets before and during World Congress to be part of this remarkable record-breaking adventure to make history and save lives. Each clic bought also counts toward your National Organisation’s Countdown to Congress donation total, so purchase clics online now and help your National Organisation get the recognition it deserves.
