The start of the new year ushers in a flurry of resolutions, the majority of which are health-related. Whether it’s a commitment to clock in more hours at the gym or the promise to cook more meals at home, sources show that most New Year’s affirmations revolve around physical well-being.
Did you know there are simple ways to make the effort you are putting into improving your own health change the lives of those in need at the same time? Same effort, double the impact!
Check out our top five ways to double your resolution potential:
Share the Love. Although we appreciate donations of any size, you can make an impact just by spreading the word. Individuals are much more likely to support a cause that they learn about through a loved one - so, take a few moments and introduce your friends and family to a worthwhile cause.
Fill your Cart. Plans to overhaul your eating habits or supplement regime? Where you chose to shop could translate into direct support for Vitamin Angels! Dozens of companies donate to us for every item sold while many others host promotions throughout the year inviting customers to give back in store.
Take a Break -- a tax break, that is! There’s no need to wait until the end of the year. Get ahead of your 2019 deductions by setting up a monthly donation. It's quick, easy and automatic! Not only will the children receiving your support be grateful, but you'll likely thank yourself when tax season comes around. Contributions made to tax-exempt organizations like Vitamin Angels qualify for deductions, so long as you remember to itemize them. Check with your tax professional.
Shop Happy. Giving back doesn’t take any extra time or money. Next time you're ready to place an Amazon order simply go to smile.amazon.com instead. You’ll receive a prompt to select a charity. Choose Vitamin Angels, and we’ll automatically receive 0.5% of the purchase price of all eligible products that you buy. Making a difference and completing your shopping, all while in your pajamas? Now that will bring a smile to your face!
Feel Good. When you give health, you get health. Years of research from accredited medical sources all point to the same notion: giving back not only supports the recipients of generous acts but it also positively impacts the gift-givers in question. Find out more about how your act of kindness could support your physical and mental health by reading our article entitled, “The Gift of Health, for a Child and for Yourself.”
No matter how you work to change your life for the better in 2019, we hope that you will join us in helping to improve the lives of children and moms all around the world. It's one resolution we know we will stick to!
