Vitamin World® has donated 100% of the profits from the sale of their Vitamin Angels/Vitamin World eco-friendly Tote bags, plus over 44,000 bottles of children’s chewable multivitamins, as well as generous dollar contributions from Vitamin World® customers all across the country. The donations go directly to helping children suffering from malnutrition here in the U.S and around the world.

Schiffer, says “Vitamin World’s ongoing commitment and the generosity of its customers is a major step in helping us save thousands of children’s lives.”
