How many of you remember eating those crunchy, almost tart-tasting Flinstone vitamins when you were a kid? Back then, that was pretty much the choice available for kids to get their vitamins. As icky as they were, I’m good they were available. Can you imagine not having access to a simple thing like vitamins? Walgreens is partnering with Vitamin Angels to donate a portion of their profits from vitamin sales, including all Centrum vitamins, to provide vitamins and minerals to moms and kids in need.

Shop-Centrum-VitAngelsIn case you’re unfamiliar, I thought I’d share a bit about Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide at-risk mothers and children life-saving vitamins and minerals. In 2014, Vitamin Angels reached 40 million children in 45 countries and are distributing 300 million vitamins in 2015.

When I learned about this program through #CollectiveBias I knew I wanted to be a part. You see, I don’t know what it’s like to grow up without the vitamins and nutrients I need. I do know what it’s like to grow up with a birth defect that causes all kinds of health problems. I think I would have had more problems if I was malnourished like many children around the world, including right here in the United States.  Read More

I’ve been a Sam’s Club member since my early 20s and have never even once considered canceling my membership even though for the first 10 years I had one, I was single and now it’s only John and me. We shouldn’t need to buy in bulk, right? Sam’s Club is so much more than buying in large quantities and they have two awesome features that I know I didn’t know about before now so I want to share them with you. Did you realize Sam’s offers free monthly health screenings as well as an online health magazine that truly lives up to the slogan “healthy living made simple?”

Last week I was making my usual “Sam’s run” and stopped at their free health screenings to see what all was involved. Read More

I think I should start by confessing something. Last year, I managed to not accomplish any of my major goals. Ouch. That hurts to admit. I’ve evaluated what held me back last year and I think that with new business tools, a new mindset and supplements like Vitamin C from Ester-C, I will have a much better 2015. Read More
