A goal set a year ago is coming full circle for one metro man.
Nate Beaird wanted to celebrate his 30th birthday by giving back and to do so, it’s taken the help from hundreds of people, some of which he’s never met.
“Hey, I’m Nate, and this year, I’m turning 30 years old, but instead of a normal birthday party, I’m partnering with World Vision to combat malaria,” says Nate Beaird in a recorded video.
With this simple request, Nate set out to fight the deadly disease, by raising $30,000 by his 30th birthday.
That money will provide 5,000 mosquito nets to protect 10,000 kids from malaria.
Nate said it was a cause he could get behind.
“What I found out was these nets are super practical they’re very inexpensive, and for the cost of a sandwich at a fast food chain, you could save two kids lives and I thought that was pretty incredible,” says Beaird.
