Vitamin Angels Give Childhood Campaign

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Vitamin Angels Give Childhood for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

As a child, I dreamed of being a ballerina. I bet you didn’t know that about me. I wanted to one day dance on stage in a grand theater. I so looked forward to going to my ballet class every week, and as I got older and better at dancing that one night a week turned into several nights a week. I was very blessed that my family had the means to let me live that childhood dream. I’m sure my Mom would have rather spent her evenings doing something more than providing chauffeur service to and from Miss Shirley’s Dance Studio. I was also very fortunate to be healthy enough to take all those ballet and pointe lessons. Not all kids are that lucky.

Vitamin Angels Give Childhood Campaign

As a mom, I have enjoyed watching my son out on the soccer and football fields. I always got so much joy from seeing him do his best, and have fun with his team. I think I sometimes take for granted how lucky I am to have a child who can run, laugh, and play. A healthy childhood is something we all deserve, but sadly that’s not always the case. All over the world children are being denied their birthright of enjoying laughter and play, for lack of proper nutrition. Can you imagine such a travesty?

The numbers are startling. This year alone, 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 for good health that comes from proper nutrition, a child’s ability to reach his or her full potential disappears.

Vitamin Angels believes that being able to experience the joy and wonder of childhood is a basic human right, one that can be restored – at least in part – with vitamins and minerals. It’s that belief that has inspired the Give Childhood campaign, sponsored by Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels currently supports programs in nearly 50 countries from Africa, to Asia, Latin America and the United States.

The Give Childhood campaign aims to raise awareness for Vitamin Angels’ cause and the problem of undernutrition worldwide. Give Childhood back to children in need by helping to support the Give Childhood campaign.

    Thank you for sharing this, I had no idea it was so inexpensive to help kids in need of better nutrition! 25 cents is something that I can definitely afford!

    i wish there were more blog posts about this kind of thing. if all of us joined together to help we could make SUCH a difference,

    That is seriously a crazy little amount that would help a child – I waste way more than 25¢ on a daily basis and to think the good it can do for a child, for a whole year!

    This sounds like a fantastic campaign and I will add it to my list ‘to do’ this year. The children who can’t get good food should – the sad thing is that so many who can eat good food, are given cheap fillers from the grocery stores and fast food restaurants. It’s easy to be undernourish in our country right now. People are eating more and more because their bodies are craving nutrition and unfortunately, that is not what people are eating.

    I wanted to be a ballerina, too, but I never took lessons. “The Nutcracker” was my first live performance at the theater in McCormick place on the lakefront in Chicago.

    Thank you for sharing about this charity. I will definitely do some more research on it!

    Amazing campaign and those statistics are alarming.
    Our 3 year old has vitamin deficiencies too due to his allergies, how much time we spend inside and being African American.
    But at least we can treat him and make up for it.
    Glad to hear Vitamin Angels is here to help.

    I think this is such a wonderful mission! There are so many malnutritioned kids that could really used these vitamins!

    Thank you for letting me know about this wonderful cause. Every child has a right to three nutritious meals a day. Thank you again for posting about this very important cause.

    So sad that so many in our world go hungry while others throw out food by the ton. I hope to someday see a change in our world. At least this organization is trying to help.

    I did not realize that so many children in the U.S. are suffering from undernutrition. That’s very startling. Thank you for supporting such a great cause.
