DeSagana Diop knows the threat malaria poses to his homeland. More than 3,000 African children die each day from the mosquito-borne disease. "I lost friends and relatives to malaria," he says. "Every night, you were just lying there, defenseless." On Tuesday, the Nets will donate $10 from each ticket purchased to Nothing But Nets, the appropriately named UN charity that sends mosquito-proof nets to Africa.
