Stephen Curry Raises Money For Malaria Prevention By Wearing Only A Malaria Net

Sometimes, a three-pointer means more than just three points.

With everyone’s focus on the NBA playoffs, one player, in particular, is making sure that his performance on the court will impact more than just the sporting world.

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors has teamed up with sportswriter Rick Reilly to help raise awareness of the Nothing But Nets campaign. And since today, April 25, is World Malaria Day, they filmed a goofy video to help spread the good word. It involves them wearing… just malaria nets.

In 2006, Reilly helped launch the Nothing But Nets campaign with a column in Sports Illustrated, inspiring readers to give more than $1 million to keep families safe from malaria. And now, he is teaming up with Curry, who is donating three nets for every three he makes this season.

Which, in case you didn’t know, has been a record-breaking 272 times this season, translating to 828 life-saving mosquito nets donated so far.

But wait, there’s more…

Once his season comes to and end, and all of his threes have been accounted for, Curry and Reilly will travel to Africa this summer to distribute bed nets with Nothing But Nets.
