First, did you know the leading cause of preventable childhood blindess is a lack of vitamin A? It is true. Found here in the States in milk, eggs, cereal, carrots and spinach, just to name a few. A lack of vitamin A is also linked to childhood death from measles and diarrhea.
And did you know that this defincency can be completely eliminated by a 2 cent dose of medicine. TWO CENTS! Just in case you haven't thought what two cents really looks like in your hand, I have included a visual. Money that we don't pick up from the ground or we vaccuum up out of the couch.
The boy and I have decided to save all the pennies we run across this year in a vase and at the end of December, we will write a check to donate the money. It won't matter to me if it is $5.00 or $50 dollars, it is that many children that won't be blind. :)
My second one is girly and since Bob the Builder reads my blog sometimes, it is better left unsaid. :)
