Dear Lindsay,

Thank you for your gift to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. With every dollar gifted, the Alliance takes bold and innovative steps to help children eat better and move more.

Nearly one in three children and teens in the United States is already overweight or obese. To combat this epidemic, the Alliance works to positively affect the places that can make a difference to a child’s health: homes, schools, doctor’s offices and communities, with the goal of reducing the nationwide prevalence of childhood obesity by 2015.

To continue this important work, we need help from generous and passionate people like you. We encourage you to stay involved by visiting our website at www.healthiergeneration.org. Thank you for being an integral part of the Alliance’s success.

Sincerely,
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation

Stuff About Me:

I am an advocate of healthy living and I am fighting the childhood obesity epidemic by raising money for the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, whose mission is to reduce the nationwide prevalance of childhood obesity and to empower kids to make healthy lifestyle choices.

In case you didn't know...

  • About one in three children and youth (ages 2-19) in the United States is already overweight or obese?
  • Health experts predict the medical cost of obesity on the healthcare system will reach $1 trillion annually by 2030?
  • Today’s kids could be the first generation to live shorter lives than their parents?

President Clinton has said that the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program is "one of the most extensive childhood obesity prevention efforts anywhere in our country and anywhere in the world." Check out what the Alliance has accomplished so far in just five short years...

  • The Healthy Schools Program has helped nearly 80 percent of schools participating in the Healthy Schools Program (11,000+) implement new, health-promoting policy and systems changes
  • The Industry Initiative has convened 13 leading food manufacturers and purchasing organizations to make products for healthier school meals more affordable and available to more than 36 million students.
  • The Kids’ Movement has built the capacity of more than 400 local afterschool programs and community-based organizations to offer health education and leadership programs
  • The Alliance School Beverage Agreement has led to an 88 percent reduction in total beverage calories shipped to U.S. schools between 2004 and 2009.
  • The Alliance Healthcare Initiative has led to more than 2 million children gaining access to preventative health benefits.
  • The Alliance has been chosen as one of the top ten charities in the child health/nutrition space by Philanthropedia.
  • The Alliance is one of six founding members of First Lady Obama’s Let’s Move Initiative

I'm doing my best to make a difference by supporting the Alliance and I encourage you to get involved too.
