Choosing how to give can be daunting. Looking at the needs in the world around us can leave us feeling numb and confused about how to contribute in a way that will genuinely help.

As parents, Alexa and I know that there is almost nothing we wouldn’t do to protect our children. While I was pregnant with my second baby, learning the devastating statistics about malaria made me feel like my heart would break.

Malaria is a preventable disease - no one need die of it. Yet thousands of small children and pregnant women die of it every day. Malaria is also relatively cheap to prevent, so every ebook we sell and every dollar you donate really counts toward protecting people and improving economies.

The Against Malaria Foundation puts 100% of public donations toward the purchase of nets, and tracks the entire process, so you can see where your money has helped.

March 1 2018 UPDATE: Our fund-raiser is now complete! Over the course of a year, we raised and donated $91,667 USD to the Against Malaria Foundation. This money buys 45,132 long-lasting insecticide treated bed nets, which will protect over 80,000 people, the population of 160 villages!

The ebook is no longer available, as this fundraiser has come to its end, but the designs will be available on Ravelry for sale individually. Check them out!
