BENEFITING: American Red Cross
The American Red Cross is a proud founding member of the Measles and Rubella Initiative. This initiative was created as an effort of reducing the number of measles and rubella infections and deaths to 0 by 2020. These viruses are extremely contagious, but also extremely preventable. In just over 10 years after the start of the Measles and Rubella Initiative, measles deaths were reduced by 71%. With just $1, a child who cannot afford it can be vaccinated against measles and rubella. Join the effort today!
