- The following was sent out today…
National Pro Wrestling Day is an action-packed event offered to the public free of charge on February 1st, 2014, starting at 1 p.m., at The Palmer Center in Easton, PA. This year's show features a variety of talent, including Colt Cabana, Green Ant, Hallowicked, Heidi Lovelace, The Estonian Thunderfrog and former WWE diva Maria Kanellis.
The men and women of NPWD believe in the positive power of pro-wrestling, and we're asking for help in proving it to the world. On National Pro Wrestling Day, we are going to raise money for the Against Malaria Foundation, and together, with the support of wrestling fans worldwide, we will save lives. Renowned for their standout transparency and accountability, the Against Malaria Foundation is one of less than a dozen charitable organizations to be recommended by GiveWell.org, by Peter Singer's The Life You Can Save, and by the site Giving What We Can. That means the money donated goes directly to the people that desperately need our help.
Malaria is among the leading causes of child deaths in Africa. In fact, 3,000 children die every day from Malaria. Yes, every single day. The Against Malaria Foundation provides long-lasting insecticide treated nets to protect against malaria in developing countries. Each net costs about $5.00 US, and the nets are tested to work effectively for up to five years. With our fundraising goal of $5,000.00 US, we aim to play a role in saving 1,000 lives through our combined efforts on National Pro Wrestling Day.
You can make a cash donation the day of the event, or you can make an online donation at any time through February 2nd, 2014 directly through the Against Malaria Foundation page for NPWD 2014. Either way, 100% of the donated funds will go directly to those in need.
Information about the Against Malaria Foundation can be found on their website: http://www.againstmalaria.com/ and the donations can be made here: http://www.againstmalaria.com/Fundraiser.aspx?FundraiserID=6847.
We know not everyone can afford to give. That's why we're making the entire event free to the public. Donations are entirely optional. You don't have to spend a dollar to enjoy the action on National Pro Wrestling Day. But if you can help, please do.
