Did you know that for every SoapBox body wash bottle purchased, a year’s supply of vitamin supplements through VitaminAngels is donated? Vitmain Angels recently was called from India by the national government of Tripura for help because of a measles outbreak. Children who have weakened immune systems can die from a disease like measles that is easily treatable in the US.
VitaminAngels was able to transport life-saving Vitamin A doses to Tripura from another base in India, Tamil Nadu within a matter of hours of the call. As they explained in their update,
“ Dozens of text messages, courier services, and numerous flights later, the vitamin A labeled “Emergency: Lifesaving!”, was collected at the airport by government officials, who began work to coordinate its distribution to at-risk children throughout the region, thus protecting their health and potentially, their lives.“
SoapBox is proud to be a regular supporter of this great organization and we want to thank all of our customers for their support with each of their purchases.
