While we’re committed to giving back all year-round, I am thrilled that our Season of Giving initiative was such a success, and it will now be at the cornerstone of our vision as we continue to grow.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the world’s largest nutrition school, is proud to announce that it has donated more than $90,000 to charitable organizations that are working to change the future of healthcare as part of its Season of Giving initiative. This past December, in support of charitable organizations that are aligned with Integrative Nutrition’s mission to transform the world, the school raised the donations for New York Cares, Healthy Child Healthy World, and Farm Sanctuary.
“I started Integrative Nutrition with the mission to change the world and make it a healthier, happier place,” said Integrative Nutrition Founder, Director, and Primary Teacher Joshua Rosenthal, MScEd. “We can make an even bigger impact when we join forces with other like-minded organizations that share our core values. While we’re committed to giving back all year-round, I am thrilled that our Season of Giving initiative was such a success, and it will now be at the cornerstone of our vision as we continue to grow.”
Last month, the Season of Giving initiative committed to donating $100 for every student who enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program. With an enrollment of over 900 students, Integrative Nutrition succeeded in donating more than $90,000 to the following three charities:
- New York Cares is New York City’s largest volunteer organization, working together with partner organizations to help children, adults, and the community through thousands of hands-on projects, including organizing volunteer projects to provide disaster relief to the thousands of Hurricane Sandy victims.
- Healthy Child Healthy World is a movement to empower parents to protect their children from harmful chemicals and promote policies that reform chemical regulations.
- Farm Sanctuary is a haven for farm animals rescued from stockyards, factory farms and slaughterhouses. The sanctuaries invite visitors to learn about, volunteer with, and advocate for farm animals recovering from abuse.
This charitable giving effort is part of Integrative Nutrition’s greater commitment to changing the future of healthcare and effecting a major shift in the world by the year 2020 – a plan called the 2020 Vision. In order to show that food affects everything and good health is a vehicle for making the world a better place, Integrative Nutrition has donated nearly $450,000 in recent years to organizations that work towards a healthier future. Furthermore, Integrative Nutrition consistently supports its students and graduates by recognizing innovative projects that help serve their communities and beyond.
“The enthusiasm and continued support of the entire Integrative Nutrition community inspires me every day,” said Rosenthal. “I look forward to the amazing things we will achieve together in 2013.”
