UN Foundation Chairman Ted Turner Thanks Ashton Kutcher, CNN and Others for Raising Awareness About Malaria on Twitter

Turner calls on Twitter followers to send a net and save a life

Washington, D.C. (Vocus) April 17, 2009 -- "I salute both Ashton Kutcher and CNN for causing a buzz about malaria, a leading killer of children and refugees in Africa.
