When you see a problem, then are immediately presented with a solution, it becomes too easy not to make a difference. That’s how I felt when I learned about Nourish the Children – an initiative that applies business principles to address the problem of childhood hunger in a sustainable manner.
I won’t bore with you too many statistics – but too many children go hungry in the world. Almost half of all deaths (3.1 million each year) of children under the age of five is from pour nutrition. That number should be zero. That’s what Nourish the Children helps to do.
How does it work?
It starts with VitaMeal. VitaMeal is a nutrient-dense food, created by scientists, that includes 25 essential vitamins and minerals with ingredients critical to malnourished children. People like you and me, then purchase bags to be donated. Nu Skin facilitates donations to third-party charitable organizations that specialize in delivering relief where it is most needed. Then the third-party charitable organizations transport and distribute donated VitaMeal to malnourished children around the world.
Each bag of VitaMeal is only $25.50 and feeds a child a meal for entire month. Buy one bag a month for a year? You’ve fed a child for an entire year! And it cost less than your monthly coffee shop budget!
I want to encourage you commit to donating one bag this month. And if you can afford it, commit to doing one bag EVERY month! I’m not asking every person to individually end child hunger. But when we all do a little bit, we can make a very big difference!
