Bill Clinton sends out a Mother's Day Message

Watch the video

For Mother's Day, I got this special Message from Bill Clinton through his foundation, Clinton Global Initiative. It is a reminder about his work fighting childhood obesity. The full letter and video message is below!

In my life, I have been blessed to be surrounded by the two greatest mothers I know: my own and my wife Hillary. In honor of Mother's Day, I recorded a special video message for you.

I'm joined by two extraordinary moms who took action in their communities to combat childhood obesity. On Thursday, we appeared on the Rachael Ray Show to inspire other Americans to get involved.

Obesity among kids has become one of the nation's leading public health threats. After my own struggles with weight and healthy eating as a kid, I'm committed to helping this generation of young people lead healthier lives through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a partnership between my Foundation and the American Heart Association.

Today we have more than 4,300 schools enrolled in our Healthy Schools Program, and more than 1 million kids have pledged to "go healthy" through the empowerME Kids' Movement.

But to continue this critical work and reach even more kids and communities, we need your support. Rachael Ray has generously offered a free Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine subscription to those who donate $50 or more by midnight tonight.

I got this in an email too. He seemed very sincere in his admiration for both his own mother and Hillary.
