Toronto (ON) CANADA, April 25,2007
Belinda Stronach, Rick Mercer, UNICEF Canada
and Toronto Mayor David Miller Are joined by Canada's newest Spread the
Net Ambassadors and corporate partners on Africa Malaria Day in front of
Toronto City Hall, Wednesday, April 25 at 12:35 pm.
The Spread the Net campaign was launched as a partnership with UNICEF
Canada in November 2006 by co-chairs Belinda Stronach and satirist Rick
Mercer. With the slogan, 1 Net. 10 Bucks. Save Lives, the goal of the campaign
is to raise $5 million to fund the procurement and free distribution of
500,000 anti-malarial bednets at 10 dollars each, for children in Rwanda and
Liberia over the next two years.
