A message from Vitamin D Council on behalf of GrassrootsHealth... Dear Friends, At this time we are presented with an opportunity. An opportunity to make a difference in the lives of 1,000 uninsured children and their families. There is little effort required and no cost involved, simply all that is needed are votes. Votes to help GrassrootsHealth win a $250K grant in the Pepsi-Refresh Project. Receipt of this grant will enable GrassrootsHealth to: Provide multiple, free vitamin D tests to 1000 San Diego area children and their families (a total of 3,000 vitamin D tests in all). Educate family members and healthcare personnel about vitamin D. Create community involvement. Develop a community action plan to solve the vitamin D deficiency dilemma. Use the information and knowledge learned from this effort to replicate the same effort in other communities. Time is of the essence, as there are only 4 voting days left (voting ends Nov. 30th). GrassrootsHealth's current status in the contest is at number 60... Let us join in unity and good-will, casting our votes to bring the benefits of vitamin D to these families. Let's help GrassrootsHealth go from number 60 to number 1 in only four short days. Please spread the word, get others involved. Success for GrassrootsHealth in this endeavor will not be their success alone, nor will it result in benefit only to the 1,000 participating children and their families. The results of this campaign are likely to be instrumental in furthering the progress of the entire vitamin D movement in general. For each small victory brings the end of the vitamin D deficiency epidemic that much closer to becoming reality. Vitamin D Council thanks each and every one of you for your continued support. Sincerely, Vitamin D Council For more information, please visit www.grassrootshealth.net/pepsi.
