World Malaria Day is April 25th - it'd be great if you could help spread the word about malaria and the Open Source Malaria consortium. There's a Twibbon campaign at: http://twb.ly/1hr0pkc. This will overlay the OSM logo on your Twitter avatar (please save your old picture). You're meant to be able to customize the tweet you send out in support. If so:

If you're new to OSM, you could say this:

Join the network: #netacollaborator for @O_S_M on World Malaria Day to #defeatmalaria http://twb.ly/1hr0pkc

It'd be useful to gain support from these malaria ambassadors: http://malarianomore.org.uk/about/well-known-supporters so if anyone knows a way to encourage them to tweet the above, that'd be great.

If you've already contributed to OSM, you could say this:

I'm a contributor to @O_S_M. I work on chemistry @SydneyUni and use #openscience to #defeatmalaria #netacollaborator http://twb.ly/1hr0pkc

(If you find you can't customise the tweet, then maybe send out the Twibbon one, then paste a new tweet with one of the above)

Thank you all in advance for spreading the word about malaria and about OSM!
