Norristown, PA (PRWEB) August 19, 2009
Every year, one third of maternal and child deaths are caused by the lack of essential nutrients. This year, in a partnership with Vitamin Angels, LuckyVitamin.com hopes to help change that.
LuckyVitamin.com (Norristown, PA) has joined forces with Vitamin Angels (Santa Barbara, CA) in a collaborative partnership to support Vitamin Angels in raising awareness and funding for their quest to reduce child mortality worldwide by advancing the availability, access and use of essential nutrients to newborns, infants and children under five. Last week LuckyVitamin.com, a direct to consumer e-commerce health and wellness website, launched an innovative new program that enables their health conscious consumers to directly support Vitamin Angels with a new at-checkout-donation module that allows customers making purchases to add a charitable contribution to their purchase.
"To be able to raise awareness amongst our large network of health conscious consumers to such a wonderful organization as Vitamin Angles brings us great satisfaction. Vitamin Angels supports a remarkable cause with an extraordinary mission that we should all recognize. We are proud to lend our support and look forward to working with them to raise awareness and funding for a long time to come," said Samuel Wolf, President & Founder of LuckyVitamin.com.
Shoppers will now have the ability when completing their order to add a monetary donation directly to their purchase. In the first week since its launch Lucky Vitamin has received hundreds of donations representing thousands of dollars in support for Vitamin Angels. Each donation will be processed by Lucky Vitamin on behalf of each contributing customer and forwarded directly to Vitamin Angels to help improve the health and wellbeing of children worldwide.
"Today for most of the children Vitamin Angels works with, basic nutrition is a privilege that is largely beyond their reach. We feel 'lucky' to be working with an organization truly committed to global health!" said Howard Schiffer, President and Founder of Vitamin Angels
