ABC4All Founder Burton Danet, Ph.D., together with a Northern California based group, Multicultural Youth-in-Action (MYIA) will meet with Dr. Kim Gebrosky, Founder of Nutrition and Kids (NAK) in Manhattan Beach, CA. The purpose is to discuss a joint effort to assist in combating the obesity epidemic in the USA via the NAK CD-ROM game for children (through age 16) and their families that teaches good nutritional habits while answering questions fashioned after TV's "Millionaire" quiz show. Schools and nonprofits receive $5 for each CD-ROM sold, making NAK an excellent fundraising tool.

A Better Community For All (ABC4All), with the mission of "Maximizing Charitable Contributions on the Internet" and a recent nominee for a Tech Museum Award (http://techawards.thetech.org/) in Education (Nominee details: http://ABC4All.net/techawards.html) has a special opportunity unfolding to help fight obesity in children.

The Founder of Nutrition and Kids (NAK), Dr. Kim Gebrosky, (See http://www.nutritionandkids.net/10982/) has accepted ABC4All Founder, Dr. Burton Danet's invitation to meet with a group from Northern California, Multicultural Youth-In-Action (MYIA). The meeting is taking place in Manhattan Beach on Saturday 08/30/03 at 11:00 a.m. at The Residence Inn By Marriott, 1700 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, 310-546-7627. NAK offers a unique fundraising opportunity for schools and nonprofit organizations while focusing on overcoming obesity in children.

Dr. Kim Gebrosky, the Founder of Nutrition and Kids in Newport Beach, CA, has created an extremely well received CD-ROM game that helps to educate kids and families on healthy eating. With growing numbers of national endorsements, NAK is tapping into a great deal of support from people and organizations including government and media. NAK is getting the word out about obesity in children and is becoming a very positive PR machine across the USA!

A visit to http://www.nutritionandkids.net/10982 -- click on SAMPLE GAME -- demonstrates more about NAK, about to be featured in the National Issue of "Science Weekly" to be distributed to schools all over the country this fall.

The epidemic of obesity and diabetes in kids is rampant. The NAK CD-ROM game is all about educating kids and families to making wiser food choices.

Any school or non-profit, earns $5 from every CD-ROM order! Children can take a brochure home to show their parents, and all can learn about nutrition from the game (played similarly to TV's "The Millionaire" show).

The group, Multicultural Youth-In-Action (MYIA), is coming down from Northern CA to meet with Dr. Gebrosky and ABC4All. The Founder of MYIA, Myia Jones, is 11 years old.
