Nutrition Experts - Making a Difference
Highlights from the 76th FDA Annual Symposium

The presentation for the 2011 Florida Dietetic Association Member reception highlights Nutrition Experts - "Making a Difference."

The background song is called "Together We Can Change the World (TWCCTW)." TWCCTW played a major role in bringing over an African Youth Choir called SIFA. The goal was to raise money for the children to take back to Uganda in order to finish building their orphanage and to build new homes for them to live in. See the footnote for the complete story behind the song.1

1 Background
Together We Can Change the World

Music: Together We Can Change the World
Song by: Rilee O'Neill and the African Youth Choir called SIFA
Website: Together We Can Change the World

Together We Can Change the World, Inc (TWCCTW) played a major role in bringing over an African Youth Choir called SIFA. All of the children are AIDS orphans. The goal was to raise money for the children to take back to Uganda in order to finish building their orphanage and to build new homes for them to live in.

This song speaks right to the heart of TWCCTW message to people everywhere. TWCCTW hopes "you choose to use this song as your own song of a personal commitment to make a difference in the world."

TWCCTW continues to raise and donate funds to build orphanages and help abused children around the world. To learn more or make a donation, visit Together We Can Change the World
