First of all, our Prenatal Donations do not increase the price of any of ProCaps product and they are not paid for out of the purchase price of any product. These Prenatal Donations have no impact on the price of ProCaps products, since they are paid for by my nonprofit foundation The Andrew Lessman Foundation with some help from a few generous suppliers like Capsugel who donate all the capsules.
Many years ago, I was fortunate enough to be able to fund my Foundation with sufficient resources to make these Prenatal Donations for decades to come.
In fact, even if I stopped selling vitamins, my Prenatal Donations would continue, since the need for these vitamins is so great and no major company or charity has stepped up. As a result, it has been left to me and my small foundation to try to fill the need.
Just to be clear, these Prenatal Vitamins are going to women in extreme need in communities where malnutrition and rampant disease pose a daily threat to survival.
Such terrible hardship and deprivation define many parts of the developing world and surprisingly, to some degree, describe challenged areas right here in the US. These donations are not a political statement. They are just a response to a worldwide epidemic that makes victims out of women and their babies, as well as their communities, countries and our planet.
I might not care much for politics, but I do care about the human condition and the health of our planet. I hope we can all agree that reducing human suffering is a desirable goal that transcends politics.
Again, everyone can rest assured that you did not pay for my Prenatal Donations and our prices are never affected even when I donate 6 bottles per order as I did last week. My hope is that the donations we make are a clear statement of our values. On a related note, for many years I have received requests to allow others to donate to our Prenatal Project.
I appreciate those requests, but I have always funded this entirely on my own; however, if there is sufficient interest, I might consider expanding the Prenatal Project. Of course, I welcome your feedback in this regard. I will respond briefly regarding my solar panels, since I struggle to comprehend any issue here.
Of course, like any vitamin manufacturer, we need extraordinary amounts of electricity to make our products. As a result, more than a decade ago, I thought it wise to create our own electricity rather make the power company burn more fossil fuels. For more than a decade, the sun has powered our manufacturing facility and as a result, no oil, coal or fossil fuel has been burned.
I doubt there is a more environmentally committed company than ProCaps Labs and I cannot imagine how these activities could possibly be interpreted negatively.
Plus, since we entered the solar market so long ago and because our installation is so efficiently designed, we create electricity more economically than the power company, so ultimately, our solar panels reduce our manufacturing costs.
Andrew I am so moved by your comments… Truth be told, I was a bit saddened to write the above article and only a few hours later, I now find myself profoundly moved by the warm, kind, supportive words you have shared.
It is a good thing I am typing this, since your words leave me speechless. Again, you have my most sincere gratitude for sharing your thoughts and comments. January 30, at 5: That said- I believe in your humanitarian mission to provide for others, and ecological mission to save our planet.
Such undeserved nastiness hurts because you care, a by-product of being a thoughtful human being. Thank you for caring and putting such sensitivity into your products.Morality and Cognitive Science. What do we know about how people make moral judgments?
