A message from FlexScreen inventor and CEO, Joe Altieri
When I started FlexScreen, I had several goals in mind. One was to create an innovative window screen design that would solve all of the problems with traditional screens. Another more important goal was to get to a place where the company would be thriving and healthy enough to give back and make a significant difference in the world.
I'm very grateful that we've been fortunate enough to get to that place, and I'm excited to be launching our new company initiative in the coming months called "Screens Save Lives."
When I learned the devastating statistics about malaria - 219 million new cases in 2019 alone, 435,000 deaths, and 75% of them children under the age of 5 - it was simply unacceptable to me.
Through Screens Save Lives, we'll work with partner organizations in Africa to distribute insecticide coated mosquito nets to families in at-risk communities. A portion of the proceeds from every screen we sell will help protect the most vulnerable from this deadly but entirely preventable disease.
I'm excited about this new opportunity. As FlexScreen continues to grow, so will our impact, and I believe we'll help save many lives.
Every 2 minutes, a child dies from malaria
Our goal is to stop this.
By partnering with organizations based in Africa, we'll help distribute insecticide-coated mosquito nets to families in at-risk communities. A portion of every screen we sell with be donated to stop the spread of this preventable disease.
