Our corporate team and franchisees are passionate about fighting mosquitoes and giving back to the communities in which we operate. Mosquito Joe is proud to show our commitment to building awareness and supporting the prevention of mosquito borne illness through campaigns such as our Beat the Bloodsuckers and MoJo Bites Back campaigns. It gives us an opportunity to do what we do best— mosquito control—while giving back to the communities we call home and those around the globe.
MoJo Bites Back
Mosquito Joe has achieved tremendous growth since we began franchising in 2012. This year, we reached a point as a system where it was time to find a cause that we could partner with philanthropically to give back and share some of the success we’ve achieved as a company. It was important to us to find a cause that aided in the fight against mosquito-borne illness and Nothing But Nets was the perfect partner for our MoJo Bites Back initiative.
Nothing But Nets
Nothing But Nets is a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness and funding to fight malaria, a leading cause of death among children in Africa. It only takes $10 to send a life-saving net. The $10 contribution goes towards the cost of purchasing a long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed net, distributing it, and educating communities on its use. That price point makes it extremely easy for anyone to contribute.
MoJo Bites Back: What We Do
Mosquito Joe is dedicated to one thing: getting rid of mosquitoes so you can enjoy being outside again. We also know mosquitoes are more than just an annoyance, they’re a real health problem around the world.That’s why we’re partnering with Nothing But Nets and raising money through our MoJo Bites Back campaign to send life-saving mosquito nets to families in Africa.
MoJo Bites Back was launched in early May 4 and our goal was to raise $5,000 from our customer base, which we would then match totaling $10,000. We amazingly reached our goal within 4 days and are blown away by the generosity of our customers. It only takes $10 to send a life-saving net to a family in need in Africa, so let’s keep the momentum going! Click here and help us keep more families around the globe protected!
In June, we’ll launch the next phase of this amazing partnership with is at the franchisee level. For Mosquito Control Awareness Week (June 26-July 1) franchisees will partner with Nothing But Nets for our Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign, and for every customer who signs up during that week our franchisees will donate $10 to send a net.
Beat the Bloodsuckers
Every year in the third week of June, the American Mosquito Control Association recognizes Mosquito Control Awareness Week (MCAW). MCAW is a time to educate the general public about the significance of mosquitoes in daily life and the important services provided by mosquito control workers. Mosquito Control Awareness Week is close to our hearts here at Mosquito Joe. While we work all year long to educate our communities about mosquito control and mosquito-borne illnesses, a designated week such as this really shines the spotlight on professional mosquito control and why we need it.
Beat the Bloodsuckers: What We Do
The campaign has two major components – the first is working to raise awareness of mosquito control and mosquito borne illness through community involvement and education, and the second part of our campaign involves partnering with local blood banks in our franchisees’ communities to support the amazing work these organizations do year round.
This is the fifth year Mosquito Joe is teaming up with blood banks to raise awareness about mosquito-borne illnesses and the importance of mosquito control. For every new customer that signs up for a mosquito treatment service from their local Mosquito Joe location throughout the week, the brand will donate a percentage of those sales to local blood donation centers. In addition, the Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign also helps promote blood donation in their communities.
In four years of our Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign, Mosquito Joe has donated over $20,000 to local blood banks and we can’t wait to add to that total this year.
