Making a splash in style

While malaria is a serious problem, fundraising events can be a lot of fun. A Fancy Dress Swim Against Malaria had participants making a splash in style as a part of the Santa Monica 4th of July celebrations this year. One of several Fancy Dress Swims organised by the group from Santa Monica, the well dressed swimmers have raised funds for over 600 bed nets this year. The unusual spectacle of sequins in the sea raises both funds and awareness, and looks like great fun too!

Next time you're thinking of having a party, maybe a Fancy Dress Against Malaria could be your theme. Though taking a dive into the ocean could be optional.
