All of us at Vitarock are excited to announce our choice of Vitamin Angels as our charity partner. Vitamin Angels is a nonprofit organization that helps at-risk populations in need – specifically pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five – gain access to lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals. In 2017, they are working to reach 60 million mothers and children in 66 countries worldwide, including the United States and Canada.
Vitarock has committed to donate 2 percent of sales to Vitamin Angels starting now through to the end of 2018. As a Certified B Corp, part of Vitarock's mission is to make the world a better place, and we have embarked on a "year of giving" campaign for 2018. Our contributions, with your support as valued customers, will further help to allow Vitamin Angels to fulfill their objective of bringing good health and nutrition to new mothers and children around the globe.
Over 90% of Vitamin Angels’ expenses go to charity activities. In 2017, this organization has been awarded Guidestar’s 2017 Platinum Seal of Transparency, the rating for transparency and financial efficiency.
“I am very proud to be able support Vitamin Angels. I have been watching this organization for last 20 years, and am amazed with their progress and impact. Founder Howard Schiffer is very genuine and devoted to his goals. It's a beautiful thing to help improve the quality of development at the start of life for the next generation.
We at Vitarock are very happy about this opportunity. Our sister company, dicentra, has been volunteering for many years ensuring quality and safety compliance of all health products offered by Vitamin Angels to underprivileged women and children in Canada.”
–Alicja Wojewnik, Founder, Vitarock.

How does Vitamin Angels make an impact?
Malnutrition is the #1 cause of preventable child death. Vitamin Angels gives needy children and mothers vitamin A, multivitamins, deworming tablets, prenatal vitamins, and nutritional counselling, providing them with a chance for a healthy life. We can help one child with just 25 cents. Vitarock is committing to donate 2% of its sale revenues starting now, throughout all of 2018, in a year of giving.
