WHY: With innovative retail promotions, brand partnerships, and cause marketing campaigns, End Malaria is a cause outdoor retail customers will care about. While the industry is focused on cutting-edge technology, performance, and protection, thousands of children die each day for lack of an inexpensive bed net. Malaria is the fourth-leading cause of death for children under 5 worldwide, yet it can be effectively and inexpensively prevented.
