BENEFITING: American Red Cross
While most people in the U.S. are vaccinated against measles as children, in much of the world, measles remains a leading cause of death in children. The American Red Cross is helping to change those odds. As a founding member of the Measles & Rubella Initiative, we have vaccinated more than 1.1 billion children and helped reduced measles deaths by a staggering 71 percent worldwide.
But there is still a long way to go! This disease kills 430 children around the world daily, a disease that is entirely preventable with a vaccine that costs only $1.
Help the Southern Nevada Chapter raise $50,000 by August 31 to save 50,000 lives.
