Measles Initiative is a website devoted to the eradication of the measles disease around the world.  It is divided into different subsections covering the problems with the disease, the solution, how one can help the cause, and links to news reports about the organization.  The website talks about all the good the organization has done in terms of lowering the number of deaths from measles each year.  This may be slightly biased, however, as the website would obviously be promoting the organization in the best light.  The creator makes his argument to persuade people to donate to the effort.  Still, this website is supported by the American Red Cross which is a highly respected aid organization.  One can trust that the information they read on this site is factual and that any money they donate will go where it is needed.
