Viva Vitamin Angels!

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. Whole Foods Market’s current podcast shares the story of Vitamin Angels, an organization that is profoundly changing the life’s of children around the world by connecting children under five with vital nutrients they need to survive and thrive.

Check out the podcast and the post for great information about the organization, what they’re doing to help, and how you can help as well.  For every comment on the podcast post, Whole Foods Market will donate $1 to Vitamin Angels!  

How awesome is that?  Head over through the month of September to raise awareness and support a great cause.

True Confessions:  I have been compensated for this post, but I still think it is a great cause and love that Whole Foods is participating.  Definitely support it!
