I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! I love, LOVED this Christmas season. I kept thinking to myself just how thankful I am to be alive and experience this precious season of giving.
This year, all of you readers were “Santa” to my children, as your reading support paid for Santa to deliver a ping pong table to my children. They were so very excited and cannot wait to have their friends over for a ping pong party. I have a feeling ping pong is going to become a very big part of their childhood memories.
I smiled as I heard their sounds of delight bellowing up from the basement through our vents in this old house. I heard the sounds of ’round robin’ and it made me so thankful not just for my own health, but for the health of my three girls.
I believe strongly that their good health is very much due to the vitamins and supplements that they take daily. I have been loading them up like crazy during the holiday season to build up their immunity as I keep reading of colds & stomach flu going around.
I think about how as a Mom all I have to worry about is colds and flus, but in so many other countries, and even here in the US, vitamin supplementation is so much more! I think of vitamin supplementation in our home as protection from something that my children could probably get over on their own due to how healthy we eat, but that is not the case with so many children who do not have the luxury of nutritious food.
This is where Vitamin Angels steps in and provides LIFE for children.
Laughter and play, birthrights of every child, are being denied. 3.1 million children will lose their chance to play forever as a result of undernutrition. Undernutrition is robbing children worldwide of their childhoods. Without the foundation of good health that comes from proper nutrition, a child’s ability to reach their full potential disappears.
Hearing this just breaks my heart, but I’m so excited to know of this amazing Give Childhood campaign sponsored by Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization distributing vitamins and minerals to mothers and children in need. Vitamin Angels currently supports programs in 50 countries, from Africa to Asia, to Latin America to the United States. How cool is that? I’m so onboard!
Vitamin Angels has provided a simple way for everyone to help. Vitamin supplementation is a simple and cost effective way to give back to at-risk children. Just 25 cents will give a child the vitamin A he needs for an entire year!
Give Childhood back to children in need. Let’s work together and help these precious children!
