Skinny Wishes to Donate Portion of Doctor Enlistment Online Fee to Non-Profit Organization Louie’s Kids to Help Fight Childhood Obesity
September 22, 2009 New York, NY – Brightgeist Media Inc., a leader in performance advertising, today announced the launch of SkinnyWishes.com, a bariatric and weight loss website designed to bring consumers in search of professional treatment and physicians together in one intuitive, user-friendly platform. The new website builds on the success of Brightgeist’s current online advertising solution and is among the first services of its kind to specifically address the needs of both the consumer and service providers within the bariatric and weight loss community.
In addition, as part of its corporate mission to help fight obesity, Skinny Wishes will donate a percentage of its doctor enlistment online fee to Louie’s Kids, a nonprofit organization that helps to treat childhood obesity on behalf of economically disadvantaged children nationwide.
SkinnyWishes.com provides an efficient life cycle “roadmap” to help guide individuals searching for professional bariatric and weight loss information in the appropriate direction of a healthier lifestyle. The site features a directory of physicians, weight loss seminars in local regions, and an “Experts Forum” which is an interactive community of physicians, nurses and nutritionists who answer readers’ questions and share their insight on issues and topics related to obesity, weight loss and nutrition. The Forum’s Q&A segment can be followed on Twitter.
In the coming months, SkinnyWishes.com will be introducing new site features including additional professional directories enlisting nutritionists and non-surgical based weight loss clinics; weight loss programs and post maintenance solutions; a comprehensive Spanish- language section; and customizable pages populated with additional user defined bariatric and weight loss content.
“SkinnyWishes.com is committed to connecting consumers searching for bariatric and weight loss solutions with doctors and surgeons by leveraging our network of high quality traffic and content in order to offer a more measurable and meaningful alternative than cluttered online directories,” states chief executive officer of Brightgeist Media Marcela Shine. “Our corporate mission is to arm individuals with the proper knowledge and tools so that they, in turn, can find the service professional that will guide them to a healthier lifestyle. We are pleased that part of the doctors’ enlistment fees will be donated to Louie’s Kids to help fight children’s obesity in the U.S.”
