Actress, Activist, and Entrepreneur Jaime King Teams Up with Rainbow Light and Vitamin Angels for First-Ever Domestic Vitamin Drop
SUNRISE, Fla., April 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Rainbow Light® (www.rainbowlight.com), a leading developer of vitamins and supplements, today announced that it will be honoring 25 years of working with Vitamin Angels to protect families from malnutrition by organizing 25 Vitamin Drops in underserved communities across the United States; kicking off in California this April with the support of actress, activist, and entrepreneur Jamie King.
Vitamin Angels® (www.vitaminangels.org), is a global public health organization that distributes life-saving vitamins to at-risk women and children in the U.S. and around the world. Rainbow Light is a founding partner of the organization.
Jaime King, a staunch supporter of women's health, will attend the initial celebration on April 30th at Claris Health, a clinic that provides life-changing medical, mental health and support services to women, men and families, in Inglewood, CA. From there, drops will continue through June, to 24 additional cities coast to coast, from Florida and Illinois to Texas and New Jersey, donating essential vitamins to women and families in need of quality nutrition. Additionally, for every bottle of Rainbow Light Women's One and Prenatal One Multivitamins purchased from May 1 - June 30 – or a share of the Rainbow Light Shine Your Light™ campaign on social media – Rainbow Light will donate a portion of the purchase price directly to Vitamin Angels, up to $25,000*.
"Since 1994, Rainbow Light has been a founding partner and steadfast supporter of our mission. While we have achieved so much together over the last 25 years, we know there is still more work to be done in the fight against malnutrition," said Howard Schiffer, Founder of Vitamin Angels. "We are grateful for Rainbow Light's commitment to improve the lives of at-risk mothers and children around the world and look forward to continuing to make a significant impact in global public health together."
Since the very beginning, Rainbow Light has provided unwavering support to Vitamin Angels with donations that have reached mothers around the world from Philippines and the Ivory Coast to Peru, and beyond. By tying contributions to sales of Rainbow Light's Prenatal One Multivitamin, the brand has reported exponential increases in annual giving as well. Additionally, the launch of Rainbow Light's 1% for Global Good program in 2016 has more than doubled its contributions, enabling Vitamin Angels to serve even more pregnant women around the world.
"As we continue our partnership with Vitamin Angels, we help more mothers every single day, which is a top priority," said Michael Costello, Senior Vice President and GM of Rainbow Light, a business of The Clorox Company. "We are motivated to keep going, to keep figuring out how we can make this life-changing partnership work for the next 25 years - and the next one hundred years to come."
