Did you know that one third of all childhood deaths are caused by lack of 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. Yet, so many children go without such vitamins.
Vitamin Angels is an organization that is profoundly changing the lives of children around the world by connecting children under the age of five with vital nutrients they need to not only survive but thrive. Whole Foods Market’s current podcast, Viva Vitamin Angels, shares the story of this remarkable effort for all to hear. In order to raise awareness, Whole Foods Market will donate $1 for the first 5,000 people to share their thoughts in response to the podcast.
