There's an app for that!

Big news today, readers! Big, big news!

Since last late year, our family has been raising money to help children near and far through the sale of Tshirts designed by our very own kids. We call it ize-T.

Ize-T started off with the honor of helping to raise money for a local Stow, Ohio family with its rising medical costs as their son battles cancer.

We, then, shifted our efforts a bit after reading a book by Rich Stearns from World Vision, called The Hole in Our Gospel. If you want to confirm your apathy with what happens on the other side of the globe, read this book. {Side note: World Vision is helping children all over the world, including right here in the United States.}

Never before did we realize the impact that malaria was having on our world. Almost 1 million deaths every year can be attributed to malaria-related diseases.

A million deaths every year; yet, malaria is completely preventable.

We knew that helping to end malaria deaths was the next path for Ize-T.

Back to the big news.

If you have ever been involved in creating an iPhone/iPod/iPad application, you know it is a. long. tedious. painful. process. {Yea, like I would know --- Matt of JoltCMS did it all.} But...

You can now help us end malaria deaths by 2015 with the NEW Ize-T iPhone/iPod/iPad app!!!  For only $9.99, you can download the app from the iTunes App Store,  and through the download, you will be sending an insecticide-treated net and saving two lives. Plus, you get a virtual Ize-T tshirt! How cool is that?!

Download the app today and spread the word! And, be sure to watch this video. Help us end malaria deaths by 2015, won't you?
