The Vitamin Angels
It is not only important to me as an individual, but also for my company as well, to have strong core values in the fundamental principles of integrity, commitment and civic responsibility. At Purity Products®
we work with the Vitamin Angels Alliance and Island Harvest
to help make the world a healthier place to live.
Teaming Up with the Vitamin Angels to Eradicate Child Blindness
The leading health risk in the world, accounting for more deaths each year than cancer, AIDS, or heart disease, is lack of food. Children are particularly susceptible to malnutrition, and more than 100 million children suffer each year from Vitamin A deficiency.
As a result, this year, more than 4,000,000 children will go blind in third world countries.
500,000 of these children will completely lose their vision and half of those will go on to die of simple infections and diseases. That's why Vitamin Angels has teamed with Nutrition industry leaders to launch Operation 20/20
, an effort to completely eradicate blindness caused by Vitamin A deficiency by the year 2020.
Eradicating Child Blindness
To prevent a malnourished child from going blind, all it takes is two high-dose Vitamin A supplements per child per year. Purity Products®
recently donated $50,000 to Vitamin Angels— enough to prevent up to 200,000 children from going blind, and we will continue to donate. To learn more visit www.vitaminangels.com
