In a day and age when most of us are thinking about ourselves, along comes a bright and shining star-Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angel’s is a non-profit organization that connects children under five with essential nutrients, giving them the chance for a brighter future. In 2011, Vitamin Angels connected approximately 25,000,000 children in 41 countries, including the US, with the vital nutrients they need as a foundation for good health.
Here is a quote from their mission statement from their website: “Our mission is to mobilize and deploy private sector resources to advance availability, access and use of micronutrients, especially vitamin A, by newborns, infants and children in need. Vitamin Angels reduces child mortality worldwide by connecting essential nutrients, especially vitamin A, with infants and children under five. Essential nutrients enable young immune systems to fight infectious diseases, helping children attain good health and the opportunity to lead meaningful and productive lives.
I have been a huge fan and advocate for this organization and encourage you to do the same. Too often we focus on ourselves and forget that there are others who are in much worse situations. GOD has shown me this in my own life the past several years as well.
