American Red Cross
The Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross has been working to Vaccinate a Villiage from Measles this spring. One hundred percent of the funds raised for American Red Cross Measles Inititiative goes directly towards vaccinating a child, and a child can be vaccinated for as little as $1. We are working our way to our $500 goal! Our first group donation came from Amnesty International FSU, a student organization who’s mission is to undertake research and action focused on preventing and ending grave abuses of the rights. We are proud to have them offer their support.
You can become involved in our efforts to vaccinate an entire village. Please visit our donation page to make a secure donation or visit us around the community this month. We will be collecting donations at several communit events including:
Also, keep your eyes and ears open for future fundraisers that are in the works. Every minute, twenty-two children die from Measles, an airborne disease that can be prevented by the vaccines you can purchace. Please do not hesitate to join us in our effects to vaccinate 500 children.
