In recognition of World Health Day, Swanson Health Products will donate five percent of eCommerce sales on April 7, 2011, to support Vitamin Angels' efforts to eliminate childhood undernutrition worldwide.
Fargo, ND (Vocus) April 6, 2011—Swanson Health Products is not alone in their goal of bringing wellness to the world. Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization working to bring essential nutrients to children who are chronically malnourished in areas such as Africa, Asia and Latin America. On Thursday, April 7, 2011, Swanson Health Products will donate five percent of eCommerce sales to Vitamin Angels in recognition of World Health Day.
Vitamin Angels estimates that worldwide, there are 150,000,000 children under the age of five who do not have access to basic supplements (vitamin A and multivitamins) that support physical and cognitive development. With financial backing and donations from manufacturers, corporations and individuals, Vitamin Angels has been changing the health and lives of children globally for the past 16 years. Swanson Health Products supports Vitamin Angels through corporate donations as well as providing an opportunity for its customers to make individual contributions by adding donation dollars in the check-out process online.
The social media team at Swanson Health Products will also donate $0.25 for every "Like" received on April 7, 2011, on their Facebook Fan page. What does $0.25 mean to a child with a micronutrient deficiency in an at-risk population? According to Vitamin Angels founder Howard Schiffer, "(Twenty-five cents) will allow us to reach one child for one year."
