Michelle Obama Has a Special Message for Kids

The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, will join Nickelodeon in celebrating the network’s seventh annual Worldwide Day of Play by sharing a special message. She will encourage kids and families to turn off their televisions and computers and to get out and play, at noon (all times ET/PT) on Saturday, Sept. 25. 

Worldwide Day of Play is Nickelodeon’s signature health and wellness event marked by its TV channels and websites–including Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, Nick Jr., TeenNick and Nick.com–going off the air and offline from noon to 3 p.m. to inspire kids and families to get up and get active.

Kids in 10 countries and in every state across the U.S. are expected to participate in Worldwide Day of Play at more than 3,000 local events scheduled worldwide.

The First Lady will appear on Nickelodeon at noon on Saturday, Sept. 25, to officially turn the channel off in celebration of Worldwide Day of Play, which is part of Nickelodeon’s overall The Big Help health and wellness efforts. 

The goal of The Big Help pro-social campaign is to launch a kid-led movement, focusing on four key issues, health and wellness, education, community service, and the environment

As part of its $1 million commitment to provide grants through The Big Help campaign, Nickelodeon is awarding approximately $50,000 to schools and community organizations across the country to help create and expand opportunities for active play.

“Nickelodeon is honored the First Lady will be lending her support and turning off our channels and web sites in celebration of Worldwide Day of Play,” said Marva Smalls, executive VP of Public Affairs, Nickelodeon Kids and Family Group.

Earlier this year, Nickelodeon announced a partnership with the First Lady’s nationwide Let’s Move campaign, which aims to solve the problem of childhood obesity.

Nickelodeon, now in its 31st year, is a leading entertainment brand for kids.
