Pledge “Vitamins4Liberia”

"I will donate a new bottle of children's chewable vitamins but only if 20 other people will donate a new bottle of children's chewable vitamins."

— Ashley, The Vitamin Fairy

Deadline to sign up by: 19th February 2009
21 people signed up (1 over target)

Country: Liberia
Place: Monrovia, Montserrado (view map)

More details
Children in Liberia lack the basic nutrients needed for their bodies. They have little food, drink dirty water and don't have access to healthcare. But a daily vitamin can make a world of difference!

I work with hundreds of children in orphanages in Liberia, and would love to be able to provide the kids with vitamins for 1 month...3 months...6 months...1 year?! I'll be honest, vitamins can get expensive(especially when you're broke), so I'm looking for others to help.

I'm looking for donations of new, unopened and non-expired bottles and packages of children's chewable vitamins (think Flintstone's). It is important that they are still sealed because vitamins mold quickly in the humidity.The gummy vitamins won't work because they will just melt in the heat.

Chewable vitamins are great because the kids think they're getting candy and while they enjoy something 'sweet', they're getting important (and much needed) nutrients!

Thank you in advance for your generosity! If you have any question, please don't hesitate to ask.

God bless!

P.S. I'm leaving to go back to Liberia on February 19th and will take as many vitamins with me then. Whatever I can't take then will be shipped.

This pledge has now closed; it was successful!

Comments on this pledge

  • Hi everyone,
    I should let you know that you can also send gift cards and I will combine the cards to go and purchase vitamins. The best gift cards would be for Walmart, Target or Sam's Club.

    Also, gift cards for places like CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens are acceptable, but I can usually get more for my money at the larger stores. And for you coupon queens (or kings) out there, consider using your Extra Care Bucks, Register Rewards, etc. to pick up a bottle of vitamins

    Also, once I am notified that you have signed the pledge, I will email you the Vitamins4Liberia mailing address.
  • I'm down with it.
