Nutraceutical company Jusuru International has refined its charitable program through a new partnership with Vitamin Angels. The global organization supplies life-saving vitamins to chronically undernourished populations—specifically pregnant women, new mothers, and children under 5.

In the past, Jusuru has given back through a variety of nonprofits and critical causes. Now, the California-based company is focusing and growing its efforts by way of a formal partnership. Jusuru has made donations to Vitamin Angels possible through its online shopping cart. With each purchase, customers and distributors can add a $1, $5 or $10 donation, which Jusuru will match.

Vitamin Angels is a 20-year-old organization that boasts seven consecutive four-star ratings from Charity Navigator for financial health, accountability and transparency. This year, the nonprofit is working to provide vital nutrients to 40 million children in approximately 45 countries. The aforementioned $10 donation would supply Vitamin A supplements and multivitamins to 40 children for an entire year.
