Today I helped an angel. Oh, not the wings on the back type, but the do something good for someone type…and it only took ONE CLICK.
That’s RIGHT. Puritan’s Pride, you know…the vitamin company that I was hired to write the Healthy Over 50 blog for is running a campaign on Facebook to help raise $25,000 for Vitamin Angels. The campaign has been running for almost a month and they’ve so far they’ve raised about $10,000. While that’s a GOOD start, I’d LOVE to see them reach their goal, and I’m hoping that you can help.
They are a non-profit organization that gives pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five the essential nutrients for a healthy beginning.
Essential nutrients, including vitamin A and multivitamins, can make a dramatic impact on children’s lives. By addressing nutritional gaps we can improve children’s health which can lead to greater educational achievement and economic productivity, ultimately helping them break the cycle of poverty. When you give children nutrients, you don’t just give them nutrients, you give them an opportunity. A chance for a brighter future.
Who gets helped?
At this point they are reaching out to 25 MILLION children throughout the United States, and worldwide. Vitamin Angels reduces child mortality worldwide by connecting infants and children under five with the vital nutrients they need to thrive.
Did you know?
- Nearly one-third of the world’s children are undernourished
- Undernutrition is the underlying cause of more than one-third of under-five child deaths
- An estimated 190 million children under five suffer from vitamin A deficiency worldwide.
How can you help?
This one is easy, and I’m asking that ALL of my readers do their part. It costs you NOTHING more than a Facebook click and Puritan’s Pride will donate $1.00 to Vitamin Angels. Your dollar is enough to provide a child with enough vitamin A to take them through the most vulnerable years of their life.
DO IT NOW!
As a paid spokesperson for Puritan’s Pride, I PROUD to know that the brand gives back. I hope that you’ll take a minute and head to Puritan’s Pride FACEBOOK PAGE and click “like” just as I did. Your ONE CLICK can make the difference in a child’s life. While you’re there, you can also enter the Puritan’s Pride $1,000 shopping spree.
