Gavin DeGraw updated fans on his blog at MySpace (@gavindegraw) on Saturday (January 30), reacting to fans’ donations to Nothing But Nets, a charity which provides nets to refugees to protect them from the dangers of malaria. The singer songwriter tells readers:
We did it! Thank you to all my fans!! The Nothing But Nets campaign achieved its goal of covering more than one million refugees with anti-malaria bed nets, and you all obviously played a big part in this!!. What a great way to start 2010! Together, we helped raise the funds to send 600,000 bed nets to displaced families in 15 countries in Africa. Thank you!! When the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and I asked for help in tackling the leading killer of refugees in Africa, you all took the initiative to help. I could not be more proud of everyone of you who helped out!
