What Can You Do with a Quarter? With Vitamin Angels, You Can Support a Child


How can a single quarter help support a child at risk of undernutrition? Vitamin Angels shows us.

Do you have any spare change floating around? Sure—we all do. But if you think that all we can do with a quarter nowadays is make a phone call from a pay phone, borrow a cart when doing our grocery shopping, or buy a gumball from a candy machine, Vitamin Angels challenges you to think otherwise: with one quarter, we can support one child for one year by giving her sufficient vitamin A for the entire year.

How is this possible? Check out Vitamin Angels’ infographic “How a Quarter Can Save a Child” to find out.
