Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization based in Santa Barbara, CA. Vitamin Angels 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. Vitamin Angels works to reach underserved communities across the U.S. and in 74 countries around the world.
You may be wondering, what’s that got to do with Mighty Gum? At Mighty Gum, our mission is to help humankind reach its full potential by empowering the human body. This is the driving force behind our products. However, we don’t limit our ability to achieve our mission to just the folks our products reach. This is why we’ve partnered with Vitamin Angels to help support their mission to eliminate newborn mortality due to vitamin deficiencies by 2030.
The facts are staggering. 7,000 newborns die every day around the world. Every day! What’s crazy is that 80% of those newborn deaths are preventable. We strongly believe that every person, and every organization, has an obligation to take care of our fellow man. So we’re trying to do our part, by focusing on what we know best – nutrition. Not only does our partnership make us feel better about what we do at Mighty Gum, it allows us to multiply the impact we have on humankind.
We feel so strongly about what Vitamin Angels is doing that we want to help them reach their goal before 2030. That said, we’ve got a ways to grow before we can really impact their mission, but our goals are set. So just know that every time you buy, chew, or share a pack of Mighty Gum you’re part of a larger chain reaction.
We are honored that we get the opportunity to partner with Vitamin Angels to work towards both our missions.
