I still use the reusable bag supporting their cause that I got at the Vitamin Shoppe. Looking to purchase another as it fits conveniently in my purse and makes me less dependent on plastic.

The work that Vitamin Angels is doing is awesome. And, well done to WFM for bringing their product manufacturers together on this. I know this effort wouldn't happen with you and your generous manufacturers Here's the thing...I noticed that the only manufacturer donation that WFM matches is on their own private label children's supplement tablets. As a natural products retailer which negotiates the largest margins in the business with all supplement manufacturers, it would be nice to see Whole Foods match whatever the manufacturer is donating on all products...and not just promote what is chiefly, and I don't mean to be mean by saying this, the philanthropy of others. How about 25 cents for every private label product sold during the promotion...across the entire line? Come on Whole Foods...you can do more still...and that private label is a cash cow for you. Whatdya' say?

This is a great idea! I'm glad that people are making a difference in under-appreciated areas. Vitamins are so important, but most people just think of feeding starving children rather than getting them the proper nutrients. Even children who aren't starving may not be getting their calories from food with enough nutrients. Of course, getting starving children some calories is very important too, to stave off death, but we must not forget the non-caloric parts of diet. Congratulations, Vitamin Angels!

Some people really don't understand the importance of such simple and everyday things such as vitamins especially in a society like ours that as a whole is unhealthy. What a wonderful organization.
