Have you heard of Vitamin Angels? They are making an impact on the lives of children under 5 years old by connecting them with nutrients needed to develop and survive. I only recently learned about them and I think it’s a good cause to support. The current Whole Foods Market Podcast shares the story of Vitamin Angels. They are working to raise awareness.
Did you know that one third of all childhood deaths are caused by under nutrition and that an estimated 190 million children suffer from vitamin A deficiency worldwide? A simple, cost-effective vitamin A capsule each six months can prevent blindness and reduce under-five mortality by 23 percent.
That is the type of assistance Vitamin Angels strives to provide. To help raise awareness about this organization, Whole Foods Market will donate $1 for each comment in response to the Viva Vitamin Angels podcast in September. To help donate, you just need to listen and leave a comment! To listen to the podcast and share your thoughts, visit: http://blog.wholefoodsmarket.com/2011/08/viva-vitamin-angels-2/
Disclosure: I will receive a thank you gift for my time sharing this information with you. Regardless, I think this is a fantastic organization to help raise awareness for, don’t you?
