$1 button will buy vaccine

URBANA -- UI students are helping save lives.
URBANA -- UI students are helping save lives. The campus American Red Cross Club is raising money for measles vaccines. They're doing it by selling buttons on the quad.

The shot will help children living in developing countries. More than 450 kids die every year from measles. The disease is easily preventable. That's why they're spreading the word.

The buttons cost just $1. That's enough to vaccinate one child. The group will be on the quad Friday from 10 - 2.
