FEED 3 Guatemala Bag = 3 Children Supplied with Nutrients for 1 Year
Every day 22,000 children under the age of five die of preventable causes. Malnutrition is the underlying cause in roughly half of these deaths and remains one the world’s most serious health problems.
However, there is hope. Preventable child deaths can be reduced with the implementation of selective health care and nutrition programs. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is working to reduce the number of daily preventable child deaths to zero. The FEED 3 Guatemala Bag was created in support of UNICEF's nutrition programs to help children receive the vitamin and mineral supplements they need to survive and thrive. Funds generated from the sales* of each bag will help UNICEF supply an entire year's worth of nutritional supplements to three young children in Guatemala–the country with the highest percentage of chronically malnourished children in Latin America. These innovative nutrient powders can be easily sprinkled over a child's food at home, instantly transforming it into a nutritious meal.
Handmade by women artisans in Guatemala from traditional Ikat fabrics, the FEED 3 Guatemala Bag is available for purchase at Lord & Taylor stores and online, and is now available at American Eagle stores nationwide and online as well!
*For each FEED 3 Guatemala bag purchased at Lord & Taylor and American Eagle stores in the U.S. and online, FEED will donate $10.50 to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help support UNICEF’s nutrition programs. No part of the purchase price is tax-deductible. UNICEF does not endorse any brand or product.
