The Nourish Haiti Program

in November 2010 Nominees, Spread Your Warmth

The next nominee for the November 2010 edition of Sweatshirt Blanket’s Spread Your Warmth campaign is the Nourish Haiti Program. Nourish Haiti, which was created by Nourish, Inc., is a nation-wide campaign to send 1,000,000 units of clean water and bottles to aid the vulnerable infants and toddlers of Haiti. In less than two months, the small company has sent nearly 5,000 bottles to the ravaged nation in cooperation with Childspring International.

UNICEF and the World Health Organization (WHO) have specifically called for support of the appropriate feeding of infants and toddlers. “During emergency situations, disease and death rates among under-five children are higher than for any other age group; the younger the infant the higher the risk,” the WHO has reported.

The Nourish Haiti program allows customers to purchase cases of Nourish that Nourish then sends to Haiti with special messages from the donors. Nourish subsidizes the cost of the water and covers the cost of shipping. A case that would retail for $75 can be “donated” by supporters for $48.

Nourish launched the Nourish Haiti program by reaching out to friends and family on Facebook and LinkedIn. The internet company Jasmere.com learned of their promotion and dedicated a special day to the drive. Through their inclusion in the Spread Your Warmth campaign Sweatshirt Blanket is pleased to have the opportunity to help support the Nourish Haiti program.

Thank you to Emily Knight for nominating the Nourish Haiti Program for the November edition of Sweatshirt Blanket’s Spread Your Warmth campaign. If you would like to learn more about this cause visit their website.
