KGK’s “It Makes Cents” initiative was unveiled recently as the company’s first step to bringing awareness to issues such as malnutrition and vitamin A deficiency.
“For the last few years I have been touched by the work that Vitamin Angels does in their fight against malnutrition and I felt compelled to help! Even though we are a small company, it only takes an incremental change in how we do business to make a big difference in the lives of others.” said Najla Guthrie, president and CEO of KGK Synergize Inc.
Meanwhile, New York-based Build Nutrition has announced it will work towards providing Vitamin Angels the means to distribute a bottle of vitamins to a pregnant woman in need for every bottle sold, thereby turning its customers into philanthropists.
"Build Nutrition's commitment to maternal health is inspiring," said Howard Schiffer, founder and president of Vitamin Angels. "We are honored to be working with them - we know firsthand what a difference prenatal vitamins make in the lives and well being of the babies and mothers we serve."
