SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA — The Vitamin D Council launched a fundraiser today, in effort to raise $50,000 in thirty days. The fundraiser is taking place at https://pledge.vitamindcouncil.org.
The Vitamin D Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, working to educate the public on vitamin D, sun exposure and health. The organization relies on donations from individuals to stay afloat.
The funds raised in the campaign will be used to support Vitamin D Council general operations, things like employee wages, rent, utilities, and website maintenance. If successful, the Vitamin D Council may have enough money to further improve its website and continue to build a large community of people involved in public health.
“Our idea is to continue to build a vitamin D community, a community that can go out and educate others on vitamin D,” says Executive Director Dr John Cannell. “That’s how we’ve been using raised funds in the past and that’s how we’ll continue to use funds now and in the future.”
In exchange for donations this fundraiser, the Vitamin D Council is offering memberships and sun-themed prints. The prints were designed by artist Claire Dierksen, created specifically for this fundraiser. She created a series of three prints, titled “Rising/Setting,” “50/50” and “Flora Solis.”
Donations of $100 are eligible for one 18×24 inch print. Donations of $250 or more are eligible for the entire series. In addition to the prints, there are perks for even larger donations and smaller donations, too.
“We can use any kind of help we can get,” says Brant Cebulla, Development Director of the Vitamin D Council. “We want people donating as little as $1 or as much as they can give. We just want to get people involved.”
