This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Vitamin Angels. All opinions are 100% mine.
Vitamins are often taken for granted when there is a lot of fresh food to eat.
I learned the hard way that vitamins and minerals are an extremely important part of our well being. It's been over 2 years since I was diagnosed with my own deficiency. Had I not been diagnosed and received supplimental treatment I wouldn't be here today.
Vitamins are that important.
Thankfully I was able to get the vitamins I needed but many don't have access to vitamins and minerals… especially those most at-risk, including pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five who really need lifesaving vitamins and minerals. An estimated 190 million children under the age of five suffer from vitamin A deficiency, which can lead to weakened immune systems, childhood blindness, and even death.
We don't have to let this happen. There is a way to help!
This holiday season consider donating to Vitamin Angels. Even the smallest gift can change a child’s life. Your 25 cents will bring lifesaving vitamin A to a child in need.
25 cents reduces mortality in at-risk children by up to 24% by providing one dose of vitamin A, twice a year. Vitamin A supplements are the least expensive solution to addressing preventable child deaths. Vitamin A Saves Lives.
Another idea is to donate in lieu of giving a gift! You can donate to Vitamin Angels in honor of an individual. This provides a gift that lasts beyond the holidays and creates a legacy of giving. Individuals make a donation and receive a downloadable or shareable card that shows their donation to Vitamin Angels.
I think this is one of the best gifts you can give. Get involved. Donate now.
Vitamin Angels helps at-risk populations in need—specifically pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five—gain access to lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals. In 2014, Vitamin Angels has been working to reach 40 million children in approximately 45 countries, including the US, with the vital nutrients they need as a foundation for good health. Vitamin Angels has received seven consecutive four-star ratings from Charity Navigator for Financial Health, Accountability and Transparency.
