Students... get your schools involved with "Stayin' Alive"!
« on: November 17, 2007, 04:35:26 am »

Malaria No More offers an incredible program conceived by a group of high school students in FL called "Stayin' Alive."

By dedicating a dance or a series of dances to Malaria No More and committing to a donation of $1000 from the proceeds, a school can play a significant part in eradicating malaria.
Here's a chance to save lives and make a difference on a global scale... and all you have to do is dance!

Over a three-year period, Malaria No More will partner with 10,000 Stayin' Alive dances nationwide, raising a total of $10,000,000. Funds will be used to secure 1,000,000 bed nets, protecting 2 MILLION vulnerable children.


Please go to: http://www.malarianomore.org/stayinalive/index.php for more information.

I just wrote a letter to my high school about getting involved with this and I am sending it tomorrow. I wonder if colleges can do it too? hmm.

First of all...Lexi is AMAZING!  She just let me know that she talked to her administrators and she is working on having an Stayin Alive dance at her school!  She is also trying to get other schools in her area to do the same.  Thank you Lexi--you're a true inspiration!

Thank you so much Chris! I love you!!!
And let me tell you, the people in charge of this dance at the website are a big help too! They are very sweet, and are offering to do a lot to help me get the word out...Tey offered to help me set up a web page so parents and students and teachers know more about it, and also they are going to send me a bed net so that will show what I'm doing too. I'm glad to have so many amazing people helping out. I love this whole idea! And I am so glad that I am able to get my school involved!
We did it!

Would you like to set up the web page on the static part of THIS site.  I can help with that if you want (and we may get more Melinda fans too if we do that).

First thing is to think about the text and any pictures you would like.  When you have thought about that send me a PM or e-mail with the details and we will draft out a page.
