At HealthMPowers, we understand that the early years of a child’s life are critical. An infant brain doubles in size in the first year of life and reaches 80% of its adult volume by age three, and 90% by age five.
Nutritious food and age-appropriate physical activity are critical during this developmental window of opportunity. That’s why we want to expand our work supporting early care centers throughout the state, helping them expose children to a range of high-quality educational experiences that optimize their mental, physical, and social development in these first five years.
We want to raise $25,000 on Giving Tuesday to help better serve our kids. When it comes to healthy habits, your donation will help us expand our work so that more children have the opportunity to grow up nourished and active.
Next year HealthMPowers will celebrate 20 years of empowering healthy habits and transforming environments where children live, learn and play. Because of the support of individual donors and sponsors, HealthMPowers has grown from serving eight schools and 8,761 students to serving 795 schools and centers and approximately 335,344 students today. Your donation to HealthMPowers will help us impact even more Georgia children.
Join our efforts to ensure all children have the opportunity to grow up nourished and active. To learn more about our process, impact and how you can help build a healthier future for children, visit HealthMPowers.org.
