Mixing One Million Gin & Tonics for World Malaria Day

SEEN has heard glorious news on the charitable front: to coincide with World Malaria Day on 25th April, Fever-Tree is aiming to mix 1 million G&Ts globally, committing to donate 20p from each drink to Malaria No More UK. Supported by limited edition collared bottles of Fever-Tree tonic water, which will be available throughout the month of April in selected retailers, the campaign is rooted in a shared desire to end malaria and will result in a guaranteed donation of £200,000 to the charity.

Quinine is integral to Fever-Tree as one of the key ingredients in our tonic waters, and it has long been associated with the fight against malaria. Many of the communities where we source our ingredients experience the devastating effects of malaria so it’s remains important to us to support Malaria No More UK as it continues to fight, treat and prevent the spread of this disease.” commented Tim Warrillow, Fever-Tree Co-Founder and CEO.

Around half of the world’s population is impacted by malaria, and it is thought to have killed more people than any other disease in history. Still a major killer that claims the life of a child every two minutes, the disease impacts many of the communities where Fever-Tree sources the natural ingredients used in its drinks. The Democratic Republic of Congo, where Fever-Tree source the quinine, and Nigeria where some of its ginger is sourced are examples of two countries that suffer the highest death rates from the disease. So what are you waiting for? Get mixing your G&T. Make SEEN’s a large one. Let’s help put an end to malaria. Show your support and join Fever-Tree in raising a G&T on 25th April.
