This year, about 500,000 kids around the globe will go blind from Vitamin A deficiency.
Walgreens partnered with Vitamin Angels, a non-profit organization that helps at risk populations in need, by providing children in the US and abroad with life-changing vitamins and minerals. Walgreens, in conjunction with their vendor partners, will donate 1% of all vitamin sales to reach a goal of helping 100 million children in the US and abroad by 2017.
When you get vitamins at Walgreens, you help give vitamins to children in need. Cameras were given to five kids in Uganda so you can see the impact you can make through their eyes.
