    Make Malaria History

    Fighting malaria… with frozen yogurt!

    Posted on March 22, 2013 by jessicanipp

    tutti fruttiThat’s right: frozen yogurt. And pizza. And burritos! 

    The members of First Lutheran Church of Minot, North Dakota, have gotten their whole community involved in their efforts to raise money for the ELCA Malaria Campaign.

    In February, Tutti Frutti generously agreed to host a Malaria Day, donating 10% of their proceeds to First Lutheran Church to be given to the ELCA Malaria Campaign. The weather didn’t cooperate, though: the temperature was -10 degrees, and the roads were icy.  But those hardy North Dakotans showed up in droves and ate frozen yogurt like champs, anyway.

    Since the Tutti Frutti Malaria night was such a success, First Lutheran looked to other businesses in the community to help them in their efforts.  And so Pizza Ranch got involved, through their Community Impact program.  And then Qdoba took their turn.  Check out First Lutheran Church’s Facebook page to see more of their creative and fun ministries (and to answer the question: What do mustaches have to do with malaria?).

    Good food, great cause: Qdoba partnered with First Lutheran Church to support the ELCA Malaria Campaign, too.

    Do you have any generous businesses in your community who might host an ELCA Malaria Campaign benefit?
