Until this week, I had no idea that over 190 million children under the age of five suffer from Vitamin A deficiency. A crucial vitamin for eyesight (the development of the retina, in particular), a year’s supply of Vitamin A can be provided for a child for only .25, and that’s just what Vitamin Angels aims to do. Now, the folks over at vitaminwater have pledged to donate .25 for each view (up to one million!) given to each of three YouTube videos. All you have to do is watch them.

The three videos were crowdsourced via Tongal after asking their community “What would your world be like without the letter ‘A’?”

“Without the A” produced by Reggie Schickel from Urbana, IL (based on idea from Diana Tay from Los Angeles, CA)

“Candid Moments Without the A” produced by Marcus Thomas from Los Angeles, CA (based on an idea from Jacob Silva from Escondido, CA)

“Notes on the Letter A” produced by Jonathan Langager from Los Angeles, CA

vitaminwater has already made a financial commitment to help 2 million children, and with your help (just by watching videos!) another million can benefit. This is an effort that can be considered “Rock Father-Approved.”

As of tonight, there’s only about 33,000 views between each of these three videos combined. Share them with friends and help reach 1 million views!
