Save a Life, Get a Cool Book

When was the last time you purchased a book that literally saved a life?  Yeah, I hadn’t done that before, either.  Until today.

The Domino Project in conjunction with Box of Crayons is working with Malaria No More to help end malaria.

When you grab a copy of their new book, $20 of the $25 purchase cost goes directly to send a mosquito net to a family in need and to support life-saving work in the fight against malaria.

In addition to saving lives, buying this book means you can enjoy essays by 62 of America’s favorite business authors, including Chris Brogan, Danielle LaPorte, Dave Ramsey, David Allen, Gary V., Pam Slim, Scott Stratten, and Seth Godin.

Organized into three main sections – Focus, Courage, and Resilience – all essays in End Malaria share a desire to inspire readers to look within themselves for solutions to their everyday dilemmas and for motivation to realize their desires.

Please share this book with your friends, family, and coworkers, and encourage them to save a life today, too.

Get the whole story, and save a life when you pick up your copy at www.EndMalariaDay.com

  1. […] Posted by Michelle on September 7, 2011 · Leave a Comment  // Digg DiggToday I blogged about End Malaria Day.  Find out how you can save a life here: https://www.michelleshaeffer.com/save-a-life-get-a-cool-book/2011/09/07 […]

  2. I think this is a great cause, because it is such a simple but important way to help those in need. I think sometimes the smaller necessities (i.e. mosquito netting) are overlooked when considering the urgency of the larger efforts(i.e. cancer). While both causes are great, it is nice to see the impact almost directly helping the people, rather than seeing them filtered, through the different segments (and often, pockets) of very large organizations, into obscurity.

    I love your blog, and I am subscribed now. Take care!

    1. Thanks for subscribing Amberr. And I agree – there are so many worthy causes, and the simple sometimes get overlooked. But it’s great to know that with a SMALL action we can make a BIG difference. :)

  5. That’s good to hear. I hope some author will give a small percentage of their proceeds for a good cause. I don’t know if we really can eradicate malaria virus. But an ounce of prevention is better than cure.

  6. Hi, Michelle,
    it is nice from you to share this info. Helping someone can obviously be so easy. I bought one illustration book for kids some two months ago to help the Fund for Abandoned Children.
    The only thing always bothering me when I give money to some cause is thinking if it will end up in the right hands… unfortunately, some institutions or individuals only say they help giving money for good causes, but everyone takes a bit of that money to their own pockets…so, I always wonder what is actually left for those who are in real need of it.

    1. That’s a legitimate concern for sure, Kristina. There are some websites like http://www.charitynavigator.org/ or http://givewell.org that provide more info on various charities and some ways to help you evaluate them.
