RALEIGH, N.C., Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Feel Good Vitamin Company is being launched today with the aim of helping end childhood malnutrition around the world. According to the World Health Organization, over 170 million children around the world are malnourished with more than 50 million of those needy kids living in developed countries. Malnutrition also contributes to about one-third of the 9.7 million child deaths that occur each year. The Feel Good Vitamin Company has been established with the sole purpose of addressing this global epidemic.
"It's unbelievable that in this socially conscious and interconnected world there are so many kids in the U.S. and around the world that are severely malnourished," Jarrett Disbrow, Founder of The Feel Good Vitamin Company says. "It shouldn't be this way and we think our little company can make a difference—maybe even inspire a movement."
The company is starting by selling a line of children's multi-vitamins—called Feel Good Children's Gummies—and for every bottle that is purchased the company will donate a bottle to a child in need. The company will provide its vitamins to disadvantaged children in the U.S. and in communities in need around the world through a network of established hunger-fighting agencies.
Feel Good Children's Gummies contain a complete mix of vitamins and minerals to supplement children's diets and provide them with the micronutrients they need to thrive. The naturally flavored supplement is also free of gluten, preservatives and lactose.
"The 'get one, give one' concept isn't novel but we haven't come across another company that is using the concept to tackle childhood malnutrition. It's a simple approach to help address a complex global problem but we're excited about the potential to positively impact so many lives," Disbrow says. "We believe that people really want to do good and affect the world they live in, and supporting a company like Feel Good is an easy way to help children in need, one little bottle at a time."
Feel Good intends to build awareness of its mission and products by leveraging social media, partnering with hunger-fighting agencies, participating in events focused on health awareness and working with schools. Feel Good is initially selling its Children's Gummies through its website, www.feelgoodvitamincompany.com, but eventually expects to also sell them through socially oriented specialty retailers.
