Whole Foods Vitamin Angels and a $25 Whole Foods Gift Card #Giveaway!

I have talked a lot about Vitamin Angels and their partnership with Whole Foods several times on my blog over the last couple of years. I absolutely love what Vitamin Angels stand for and how Whole Foods is helping them on their initiative to provide the necessary vitamins for those who might not be able to afford them.Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 5.19.39 PM

Vitamin Angels helps at risk populations in needs, especially those who are pregnant, new mothers, and children under five. They help them to gain access lifesaving and life changing micronutrients. Many of these people in these categories do not have the necessary funds to purchase vitamins for sustainable living, so Vitamin Angels, along with Whole Foods, tries to make a difference by supporting this very important cause.

Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 5.19.54 PMThroughout the month of July, Whole Foods  is partnering with Vitamin Angels for the fourth year to donate vitamins to at-risk populations who need it the most— pregnant women, new mothers and children under five. When you purchase any Whole Foods Market or 365 Everyday Value supplements in stores, Whole Foods Market will donate 25 cents to Vitamin Angels. I know for one I purchase my vitamins at Whole Foods, so it is great to know that by purchasing this Whole Food brands, I am making a difference to help people.Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 5.20.20 PM

It only takes 25 cents to provide vitamin A to an at-risk child for an entire year.  This year, with your help, Vitamin Angels hopes to reach 30 million children with vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for healthy skin, teeth, and vision.

To help out this very important cause, Whole Foods needs all of our help. Just go out and purchase any Whole Foods Market or 365 Everyday Value supplement including Amazing Grass, Garden of Life, Jarrow Formulas, Reserveage, Nordic Naturals and Source Naturals to name a few. 25 cents of your donation will be donated to Vitamin Angels. We buy these vitamins anyway, so why not help out and make a difference in lives!

    Extremely important for the pregnant moms to have folic acid to prevent spina bifida, not to mention the other benefits… I shop at WF all the time and am happy if my purchase contributes to this cause.

    This is so sad :(

    An estimated 190 million children under five suffer from vitamin A deficiency which is a major underlying cause of child mortality


  11. Arthur Anderson says

    Awesome cause! My wife would really like to support all women having access to prenatal vitamins.

  12. rachel travis says

  13. Sacha Schroeder says

    I have never heard about the Vitamin Angels before now. What an amazing cause. I am also checking out their website. Thank you for sharing!

  14. Marcia Goss says

    It’s unthinkable that one in three children are undernourished. Vitamin Angels is a wonderful program aimed at helping these children.

  15. Robin Wilson says

  17. Rosie says

    I’ve gotten supplements from Whole Foods and it is good to know they partner with Vitamin Angels. They truly are angels to care about people who have no way to obtain these needed vitamins, and such a small price goes such a long way!

  18. Fran Mingione says

    This is such a worthwhile cause – kids and pregnant women need proper nutrition and vitamins. Kudos to Whole Foods for donating with every purchase!

  19. Janet F says

    This is a much needed program, it is wonderful that they help children and women in need.

  20. Stephanie Easterling says

    Vitamin Angels is a wonderful cause. They are helping so many people. Thanks for the information. I will go to Whole Foods to buy the Vitamins to help.

  21. Prickly Pinecone says

    I had never heard of them before but now I will be sure to look out for them while atwatwhole foods. Such a great concept!

  22. Heather H says

    I am so impressed that it only takes .25 cents to provide a child with a year’s worth of Vitamin A. That is amazing!

  23. Kellie Christensen says

    There are so many opportunities to help those in need. Its much easier than we think sometimes!

  24. Charisa Marshall says

    My girls take these vitamins daily and live them. Definitely mommy approved. Glad I’m making a difference purchasing this product.

  25. latoya says

    I have to say that I think this program is pretty cool. I cant believe it only takes 25 cents to provide vitamins to a child for one year.

  26. maria gabriel says

    This is pretty awesome, I learned that in Guatemala they had vitamin A for 862,250 children, multivitamins for 4,117 children, prenatal vitamins for 21,064 women.

  27. Amy Spears says

    I think this is a good cause and Vitamin Angels seems to be pretty efficient. It looks like they use a very small amount of their donations for administrative/fundraising. Most of your donation goes toward the intended purpose and you can do it online.

  28. Sarah Cool says

    i will definitely be purchasing some of those products to help the cause! We need to spread the word so others can as well!

  29. Sandy says

    What a great idea for such an important cause and I will definitely be looking into purchasing some of the products.

  30. jessica barnett says

    This is a great way to give back. I love that they are giving supplements to people who need and deserve it.

  31. Carolyn K says

    It always amazes me the learn that people in impoverished countries go without things that we take for granted, like vitamins. And they’re so inexpensive too! I’m so glad Whole Foods is doing this.

  32. says

    I think that’s wonderful that Whole Foods is donating 25 cents from each purchase of the 365 vitamins to Vitamin Angels! We shop at Whole Foods every time we get the opportunity.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  33. sarah says

    “An estimated 190 million children under five suffer from vitamin A deficiency, a major underlying cause of child mortality” – Wow, what an important reason to support Vitamin Angels!

  34. Emi says

    I ususally don’t buy supplements (sometimes I get potassium) but I will be happy to check out/purchase the Whole Foods supplement line if it helps this cause. Hope that there is labeling in the store that shows which ones benefit Vitamin Angels.

  35. Melissa O. says

    I love this cause. Its something many people probably don’t think about in terms of helping people in other countries. You think about food, clothing and shelter but with such poor diets these people are not getting the necessary nutrients especially the young developing children.

  36. Stephanie Phelps says

    I am going to start purchasing my supplements there this is such an awesome program for woman and children that need it so much!

  37. Margot C says

    I read that this one of the few charities that keeps operating expenses low and uses a high percentage of funds on its mission.

  38. april says

    I love to learn about a great cause like this. Our local Whole Foods opens in 4 days and I would be happy to make a purchase that helps this cause.

  39. D Schmidt says

    Visited the site and learned Millions of children around the world are suffering from ‘hidden hunger’, a lack of micronutrients that can lead to disease and even death. In fact, one third of all childhood deaths are attributable to malnutrition. Together, we can change that

  40. Amy L says

    Another great reason to shop at Whole Foods. I haven’t tried their supplements, but have been happy with all other 365 brands, so I’m sure I’ll like them too.

  41. Asimina kaminis says

    My brother works for whole foods and is always telling me how great they are, what a great cause for vitamin angels!

  42. debra s says

    It makes me feel a LOT better to know that when I buy something, it directly is akin to me making a donation to a worthy cause. I LOVE to support companies that do so.

  43. Kathlyne says

    Like you said, I buy these vitamins anyway, but now I know that buying them at Whole Foods supports a good cause.

  44. Nicole W says

    What a great cause, and an easy way to help! I would be happy to buy these vitamins, and get my family and friends to purchase some too.

  45. Jill Myrick says

    I would definitely buy the supplements to help support Vitamin Angels. I think that it says a lot about Whole Foods and the integrity of the company that they are willing to do this.


  46. Anna H says

    That’s amazing that it only takes 25 cents a year to support one child! And it gets donated when we buy a vitamin product!

  47. Marsha H. says

    Great to hear that Whole Foods is donating 25 cents for each purchase. Nice to hear they are helping others!

  48. Erika JM says

    Its important for growing little ones to get all the vitamins they need, and I will gladly purchase a 365 Vitamin to help.

  49. Joy Q says

    It only takes 25 cents to provide vitamin A to an at-risk child for an entire year

  50. Laurie Emerson says

    This is such a good cause and I would gladly replace the supplements I use now with these to help support it.

  51. kolpin says

    I need to replenish my stash of multi-vitamins anyway, so I’d be glad to help through Vitamin angels/Whole Foods

  52. Sharon Jones says

    Vitamin Angels helps at-risk populations in need—specifically pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five

  53. Rajani Patil says

    There are many countries where the people are so malnourished and even getiing 1 square meal a day is hard. Vitamin Angels help these people to get the nourishemnt they need. Even the smallest help to humanity adds up and raises hope that there is still good in this world.

  54. mommasbacon says

    We mostly shop at Whole Foods and am always amazed at the wonderful causes they support. This is an awesome one!
