- Every 6 seconds a child dies of malnutrition.
- 800 million people are going hungry, mostly children*
- 50% of the world's children are severely underweight*
- Over five million people die every year due to malnutrition. Millions more survive, but with their growth and intelligence stunted due to a lack of vital nutrients.

My husband's company has an intiative called Nourish the Children, for which they've developed a product called Vitameal that provides all the necessary nutrients and vitamins children need to develop properly. Through generous donations, they have provided over 100 million meals in the past five years to children all over the world, including the victims of the China earthquake. If you have a moment, please read a little about the initiative. If you're interested in donating, please click here. Thanks!
