IOWA STUDENTS CARE is a program of the Simon Estes Foundation that is engaging students across the state of Iowa to assist in eliminating malaria in Africa and saving the lives of millions of children. According to the World Malaria Report, published by the World Health Organization, an estimated 660,000 children die annually from malaria. This estimate ranges from 610,000 to 971,000 deaths. By providing a treated bed net that children can sleep under, their lives can be saved. Simon Estes and the Simon Estes Foundation are deeply committed to this cause and very much appreciate Iowa students joining us in this effort.
As the Simon Estes Foundation works to raise funds to eliminate malaria in Africa, we are pleased to announce our partnership with the United Nations Foundation and its Nothing But Nets Campaign. This partnership will provide the Simon Estes Foundation with access to resources to ensure that the funds generated by our Eliminate Malaria Campaign will directly benefit children in Africa.
We are honored that both Governor Branstad and Lieutenant Governor Reynolds publicly endorsed the Simon Estes Foundation's Eliminate Malaria Campaign at the recent School Administrators of Iowa Conference held in Des Moines on August 7, 2013.
SELL A CD—SAVE A CHILD’S LIFE
IOWA STUDENTS CARE is actively involved in selling the CD titled Save the Children, Save Their Lives which Simon Estes recently recorded here in Iowa. The price of the CD is $15.00 and he will donate $5.00 from the purchase of every CD to buy a treated bed net to save the life of a child in Africa. We are asking students across Iowa, at all grade levels, to be a part of IOWA STUDENTS CARE and to sell at least three (3) CDs to help save the lives of children in Africa. To participate in this unique statewide effort, download the School CD Sales Registration Form on the right, complete the form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your school is registered, you can either have the CDs shipped directly to your school on consignment or students can download the Student CD Sales Order Form on the right.
We also want to offer support to each school that helps save the lives of children in Africa. For every CD sold at your school, Simon Estes will donate $5.00 to your school. As an example, if your students sell 1,000 CDs, he will send a $5,000 donation to your school.
