Review for Alliance for a Healthier Generation Inc. , Portland, OR, USA
This organization uses its children to present an image that they are helping people. They really just use the money to line the pockets of their top leadership. More money should be going to support the kids and their efforts instead of in leadership travel, personal cell phone reimbursements as well as work cell phones, and lavish spending on many of New York's boutique hotels, just to name a few. The question should be asked of what is this organization really doing to combat the obesity epidemic! Currently they are just riding on the coat tails of the First Lady's successful Let's Move Campaign. I won't be contributing again and I would encourage others to really ask the tough questions of this organization! This is a direct failure from the CEO on down.

The Alliance is consistently ranked by Guidestar as a top charity because of its efficient use of donor dollars. Over 81% of every dollar goes directly to Alliance programs that reduce child-obesity and increase healthy habits for kids. Every investment in the Alliance helps to serve more than 17 million children, more than 30, 000 schools, 6,300 out-of-school time sites and 56,000 doctors’ offices across the country. The Alliance achieved these milestones under the leadership of CEO, Dr. Howell Wechsler, formerly of the CDC, who resides in New York City (at his own expense), from where he effectively manages the organization and lends great expertise to the cause of improving children’s health.
