Founded originally as Aframe to raise awareness and funding for Vitamin A deficiency in developing nations.
Article One has donated over $17,000 to Helen Keller International's vitamin A supplementation program thus far.
Most people are unaware that about 500,000 children globally go blind each year from Vitamin A deficiency, and half of those children die within 12 months as a result of Vitamin A deficiency. Even more astounding, it costs just one dollar for a year’s worth of supplements for one child. That means a one dollar donation to Helen Keller International will ensure at least one child will not die or go blind from vitamin A deficiency.
