Live Town Hall Webcast Produced by Internet TV Channel in Cooperation With National League of Cities TV and Experts Attracts National Attention on Responding to First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" Project Call to Action to End Childhood Obesity

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  'Give The World Your Heart' TV (www.GTWYH.TV), an Internet TV Channel dedicated to content that promotes positive, healthy activities, announced it received significant traffic during a live town hall webcast to highlight information and ideas on how best to support the goals of 'Let's Move', First Lady Michelle Obama's project to end childhood obesity. The live webcast, which has gone viral and is now being viewed by large and growing audiences in archived form, featured interviews with children obesity advisors and experts on February 24, 2010 and was produced in cooperation with the National League of Cities Internet TV channel, National League of Cities TV (www.NLCTV.org) at the studios of Internet TV Network TV Worldwide, (www.TVWorldwide.com) near Washington, D.C. The webcast will be archived for a full year for later viewing on both channels.

"First Lady Michelle Obama recently announced her resolution to help solve the childhood obesity epidemic with the "Let's Move" (http://letsmove.gov) effort, and we responded with the 'Solving Childhood Obesity Now' pilot webcast," stated Sandy Masin, Founder of Give The World Your Heart, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (www.GTWYH.org) and the parent company of 'Give The World Your Heart' TV. "We received tremendous positive feedback from our diversified viewers and speakers on the panel for this pilot program. Several proven best practice solutions to solving childhood obesity were presented by experts that can be immediately applied by kids, adults and stakeholders in communities. Based on this success, we plan to present a compelling series of Internet TV segments for 'Solving Childhood Obesity Now'." 

When asked during the webcast about the role of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) in the First Lady's "Let's Move" Campaign, Panelist Amy Garcia, Executive Director of NASN replied, "School nurses are involved in many ways because our mission is to keep kids healthy, in school and ready to learn. Every listener should be giving some thought to what it is that they can do in their city their county to work on reversing the tide of childhood obesity so we can reverse this trend in a generation."

"We were pleased to see Internet TV Channels we work with collaborate to solve some of the nation's most complex challenges, using interactive social media principles," commented Dave Gardy, Chairman and CEO of TV Worldwide. "It is always a pleasure to work with people that have an interest in making the world a better place, like the content contributors to 'Give The World Your Heart' TV and the National League of Cities TV community."

"The time is now, for everyone to come together to solve the childhood obesity issue once and for all, by engaging in positive activities as a way to maintain the trust of kids, adults and to lower the cost of healthcare," remarked Dr. Laurence Brenner, a member of the Give The World Your Heart's Health Advisory Board. "When we work together giving our heart-felt intentions for a better outcome, then this level of trust may be just enough to finally see remarkable results."
