I have been a fan of Nordic Naturals’ products for quite some time, and now I’ve got one more reason to support them:
From July 1st – September 30th, 2013, Nordic Naturals will donate $1 to Save the Children’s literacy program for every bottle sold at retail stores of the following Nordic Naturals products: Baby’s DHA, Children’s DHA, Omega-3.6.9. Junior, Ultimate Omega Junior, and Nordic Berries.
“Supporting learning in children has always been a passion for us at Nordic Naturals,” notes Keri Marshall, Chief Medical Officer for the company. “Omega-3s have proven themselves as important building blocks not only for overall health in children but in supporting a child’s ability to learn. We are proud to be associated with Save the Children and to support their meaningful work to improve childhood literacy in this country.”
As a former English Language Arts teacher, and now more importantly, a mama to two little ones, literacy couldn’t be a more important cause to me. I have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember, and I can’t imagine life without the adventure, escape, inspiration, and knowledge that literacy has afforded me. A love of reading has gone hand in hand with a love of learning in general for me, and I wish every child could grow up with these passions. It is a beautiful experience to watch my children begin their path to literacy, and I know that the fact that they are already solidly on this path at ages one and three is a privilege. Back when I was teaching, I saw first hand how much children’s lives were affected by a lack of literacy. Not only did it affect their academic performance; it also greatly impacted their self-confidence, social lives, and general sense of well being. I believe that starting children on a solid path to literacy early on in their lives is one of the greatest gifts that we can give them.
If you’re not familiar with Nordic Naturals, they are the leading manufacturer of omega-3 supplement for both children and adults. Nordic Naturals is committed to delivering the world’s safest, most effective omega oils to help provide the essentials of an extraordinary life.To learn more about Save the Children’s literacy program, please visit this link.
