Sam’s Club Teams with This Saves Lives to Make an Impact
This Saves Lives, a snack brand on a mission to end severe acute malnutrition in children, is now available at Sam’s Club online and in-store for a limited time. Together, Sam’s Club and This Saves Lives created a special 20-count box, featuring two top-selling flavors, Madagascar Vanilla Almond & Honey and Dark Chocolate & Cherry snack bars for only $17.48.
Both brands will be making an impact by giving in two special ways. As part of the Sam’s Club “Fight Hunger. Spark Change” campaign, every box of This Saves Lives purchased from April 5-May 3 will not only help send life-saving food to children suffering from severe acute malnutrition through This Saves Lives’ global program, it will also help to secure five meals to Feeding America to support local food banks in the communities where purchases are made.
“Sam’s Club is excited to work with This Saves Lives to not only support children locally, but to provide children abroad with life-saving food,” said Clint Gill, senior vice president and general merchandise manager for Sam’s Club. “We’re passionate about providing food to families across the country who need it most, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic has created a need for food assistance unlike any other, so it felt natural to join forces with This Saves Lives to make a larger impact across the globe.”
The impact of COVID-19 on children worldwide is substantial — every 11 seconds, a child dies due to severe acute malnutrition, and this number has more than doubled because of the pandemic, according to This Saves Lives. In America, 13 million children may face hunger as a result of the pandemic.
“This is a really special partnership between Sam’s Club, Feeding America and give back brands like This Saves Lives,” said Kristen Bell, This Saves Lives co-founder and actor. “For each purchase, five meals will be given to food banks right in your community. These are baby steps we can take that add up to a big impact. Kind acts, multiplied a million times over.”
