Insect Shield®, known for their bug repellent apparel/gear technology, is launching a holiday "Super Hero" Blanket campaign to help protect at risk children from malaria. Instead of a traditional buy one, get one free offer, Insect Shield is placing two protective blankets in the hands of a child in need for every purchase of one blanket online.
Insect Shield blankets offer built-in protection against mosquitoes, ticks and other dangerous insects that can carry diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and Lyme. The distribution of the blankets will be conducted by Insect Shield’s partner, Medical Teams International, a global health organization that sends more than 200 volunteer teams each year to provide disaster relief and surgeries, as well as general medical and dental care for impoverished people worldwide.
According to the World Health Organization a child dies every minute from malaria in Africa and personal protection against mosquito bites represents the first line of defense for malaria prevention. Insect Shield repellent blankets, which offer built-in protection from mosquitoes and other disease-carrying insects, can help.
