Mosquito Squad Announces New 3-Year Challenge to End Deaths from Malaria via Cause Program with Malaria No More

100% of Franchisees Participate In Support of Partner Malaria No More

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) June 25, 2014 - Outdoor Living Brands, parent company of Mosquito Squad, North America's largest and most trusted name in mosquito control, has announced a new three-year program to help end malaria deaths worldwide. With 100 percent participation of all franchisees, Mosquito Squad aims to raise $250,000 by the end of 2016.

Dread's Challenge, named for Mosquito Squad's brand icon Dread Skeeter, will raise awareness for Malaria No More and $250,000 in secured donations by 2016. Since 2011, Mosquito Squad franchisees have supported Malaria No More with a variety of activities. Franchisees are encouraging customers and others to donate a dollar or more to the cause to support Malaria No More's Power of One (Po1) campaign which secures a life-saving test and treatment for a child in Africa for just a dollar. Donate at http://www.SwatMalaria.net.

"We're proud to achieve 100% system-wide support of this effort," stated Chris Grandpre, Chairman & CEO of Outdoor Living Brands and Mosquito Squad. "System wide participation represents our franchisees' commitment to providing pest and disease free outdoor living environments."

Added Grandpre, "We're fortunate in the U.S., that while we fight the bite at home every day as a matter of convenience, unfortunately, children in Africa continue to die needlessly from mosquito bites."

Malaria No More engages leaders, rallies the public, and delivers life-saving tools and education to families across Africa and as a franchise Mosquito Squad is fully committed to their efforts. Malaria is one of the top killers of children across the globe; more than 1,300 children lose their lives to malaria every day, according to the World Health Organization.

Outdoor Living Brands and Mosquito Squad are also working to increase public awareness to help eliminate areas where mosquitoes breed in their yards and outdoor spaces.
