Quixtar Inc. (http://www.Quixtar.com ) has donated $228,000 worth of Nutrilite® Kids Chewable Multivitamin/Multimineral tablets to The Healthy Foundation’s Vitamin Relief USA program. These supplements — some 720,000 tablets in 8,000 bottles — will aid the foundation’s ongoing campaign to provide vitamins to school-aged children at risk for malnutrition and nutrient deficiency.
“As the leading online health and beauty retailer, we at Quixtar understand the role good nutrition plays in leading a productive, healthy and happy life,” said Ken McDonald, Managing Director of Quixtar. “We’re very proud of our Nutrilite brand of products and we’re thrilled to know our donation will help improve the health and wellbeing of these kids.”
Through Vitamin Relief USA Children First(TM), Quixtar’s donation of Nutrilite® supplements are shipped to Head Start centers in Washington D.C. where they are provided daily to 1000 children at no cost for one year. Teachers, parents and other organizational staff report that participating children have achieved higher grades, get along better with others, feel better about themselves, require fewer visits to the doctor, and have higher school attendance.
“We are so deeply grateful for Quixtar’s generosity,” says Michael Morton, Executive Director of The Healthy Foundation/Vitamin Relief USA. “These vitamins will make a great difference in the quality of life of the Head Start Children.”
Quixtar’s vitamin contribution is part of the global One By One program of its parent company, Alticor, which is helping to improve the quality of life for children around the world. Quixtar also is a national sponsor of Easter Seals (http://www.EasterSeals.com ) in the U.S. and Canada. Quixtar and IBOs contributed more than $830,000 to Easter Seals in the U.S. and Canada in 2004.
