    Theresa Roemer Hosts First Charity Event in 3,000 Sq. Ft. Closet Since Infamous Burglary to Benefit MoRE Camp Adventure by Kids Need More, an Oncology Camp on Shelter Island, New York


    HOUSTON, TEXAS, October 2014 – On Saturday, November 8th Houston philanthropist Theresa Roemer will host the first charity event in the 3,000 sq. ft. closet since the infamous burglary that took place there this past summer, robbing her and her husband, Lamar Roemer, of more than $1 million dollars in personal goods.

    Prior to the burglary, Theresa Roemer’s elegant three-story closet, designed after a Neiman Marcus showroom, made national headlines for its opulence and character after the closet was featured on the Neiman Marcus blog and the story went viral. Built and designed for the purpose of holding fundraising events, the unique venue features a champagne bar, seating area, vanity station and fashions from exclusive designers, including Hermès, Fendi, Dior, and Christian Louboutin. While Theresa Roemer has been busy with the launch of her new apparel line, Theresa Roemer True and Real, she remains committed to helping others. The upcoming fundraising event is a private, invitation-only fundraiser that will benefit MoRE Camp Adventure, an oncology camp run by Kids Need More.

    “When I heard about the unique events at MoRE Camp Adventure and how it gives these strong and spirited children a week to just be kids, time off from thinking about cancer, I wanted to help,” says Roemer. “This camp is completely run by volunteers and fully funded by donations – that’s no small order. It is my hope that the November fundraiser will be a success and assist many more children in making memories next year at MoRE Camp Adventure.”

    ABOUT MoRE CAMP ADVENTURE
    In 1990, a group of concerned parents created a camping experience for their children diagnosed with cancer and their siblings. MoRE Camp Adventure now serves the East Coast and Tri-State area. It remains one of the only camps of its kind to serve child cancer patients and siblings. The programs and activities are designed to reunite siblings and allow parents time for respite.

    ABOUT THERESA ROEMER
    Theresa Roemer is the CEO of Theresa Roemer, LLC and founder of the Theresa Roemer True and Real apparel line, with offices located at 25815 Oakridge Dr. in Spring, TX. Theresa Roemer is an expert in business philanthropy, runs several small businesses, and is a partner in Roemer Oil.

    galaxy with the Friendeshans and the Oily Spoilies! New illustrated series for kids offers many lessons on spreading friendship and positive energy rather than meanness and negativity.


    In his new Friend Ship Friendesha series, author Joe Scott, co-author Andy Wolfendon, and illustrator R. Boone offer a bright new take on going positive, with palpable benefits for aliens, people, and planets too.

    Friend Ship Friendesha



    In Book 1 in the series, readers meet the Friendeshans, a lovable race of beings who spread friendship and their own special brand of positive energy known as pozzi-power throughout the galaxy.

    Alas, it isn’t long before the Friendeshans encounter the Oily Spoilies, creatures that thrive on meanness and negativity and who delight in spreading their nastiness to every planet they can find. They squirt their invisible oil on people and beings to make them mad, bad, and sad.

    What will happen when an Oily Spoily spy gets aboard the Friendeshan’s spaceship, the F. S. Friendesha? Read Book 1 to find out.

    In Book 2 of the series, readers meet a young Earthling named Kiley who loves spending time with her Grandpa Gus. For some reason, lately, Grandpa seems more interested in the strange machine he’s built to send messages into outer space. One day, while Grandpa is napping, Kiley beams out her own message. To her surprise, it’s answered by the Friendeshans – the most pozzi-powered beings in the galaxy!

    Kiley is delighted to learn the Friendeshans are on their way to Earth, because the nasty Oily Spoilies have already arrived. They’re making everyone grouchy and mean, even one of Kiley’s best friends!

    Book 3 of this on-going series will be coming out in May, 2014.

    As the series unfolds, the Friendeshans work their pozzi-power on planet Earth, unseen by most humans. Scott explains that the Friendeshans are like loyal, invisible friends children can carry with them in their imaginations. With the Friendeshans around, he notes, every child has a friend.

    Scott comments, "I wrote the Friend Ship Friendesha series for my grandchildren, but it’s for any child who has ever been picked on. I want all kids to be completely aware of what positive and negative energies can do. There’s a gold mine of positive energy hiding inside all of us."

    He adds, "This series is all about keeping our planet clean and the environment green, and keeping kids and parents positive. It has a strong anti-bullying message and offers many lessons on approaching each other by being kind."

    For more information on the stories, look them up at www.friendesha.com.

    Author: Joe Scott is a contractor and real estate developer who built a thriving enterprise from a truck and a toolbox. He has negotiated thousands of business deals involving corporate executives, homeowners, bankers, laborers, and union officials. In addition, he has hired, and been hired by, individuals from every walk of life. Through these dealings, Joe has learned that all people fall into three types – givers, takers, and those who both give and take. Knowing how to recognize and cope with all three types is the key to his success. In this children’s series, he hopes to instill in kids a good foundation for a happy and positive life. His first book, "The Joe Dial," released in 2011, is age appropriate for those who are 12 to 95 years old. It is also available at all major retailers and as a download.

    (BPRW) Developmental Delays: Catching the Culprit

    - (BLACK PR WIRE) – Perhaps Dr. Seuss would say,
    "As children grow, abilities show.
    And they began to prosper.
    But if they pause, it’s a concern for all.
    So assistance we must foster."


    As a child grows so do their abilities to perform and achieve age appropriate tasks. These age appropriate tasks/abilities are known as developmental milestones. But what happens when these developmental milestones are not met or missed, and a child can not accurately perform age appropriate tasks? Knowing which specific areas that any developmental delays exist is the key to correcting any problems. Identifying these areas is the sole purpose of iOT Screener.

    iOT Screener is a FREE multiplatform app developed by Dr. Frederick B. Covington, OTD, to assure and assist in the proper development, well-being, and intervention (if needed) for children. The app does this by allowing a user to input general information about the child and themselves and answer a series of simple Yes/No questions. For children under the age of five, the app’s questions pertain to developmental milestones and progress typical to the child’s age. For children over the age of five/school aged the app looks at maladaptive traits or behaviors that may affect academic performance or everyday tasks.

    When the questions are completed, the user is presented with an analysis. For children ages under 5, the app reveals what percentages of developmental milestones are currently being met. For the children over five/school aged, it reveals the percentage of maladaptive traits observed. The ratings are categorized as;

    No Concern: Functioning Within Normal Limits
    Minimal Concern
    Moderate Concern
    Maximal Concern

    Having this knowledge not only informs a caregiver but allows for any needed intervention. Any individual that proceeds through life without successfully achieving developmental milestones is a recipe for academic failure and scholastic latency. We must begin to look at children the same way an architect looks at building a home. If the architect has a million dollars to build a home, he would not spend a mere $1000 to lay the foundation. If so, everything that is built on top of that faulty foundation is bound to fall. Using iOT Screener allows for that steady foundation to be laid. This allows parents, educators, therapists, and any caregiver to later build upon that solid foundation and have assurance that progress can and will continue.

    For more information visit: www.iOTScreener.com or contact Dr. Covington at iotscreenerhelp@gmail.com.

    National Get Outdoors Day

    In advance of National Get Outdoors Day tomorrow, the Ad Council and the US Forest Service have released new PSAs that promote outdoor activities for children. You can view the PSAs at: http://www.multivu.com/mnr/62047-us-forest-service-ad-council-psa-african-american-families-discover-nature.

    National Get Outdoors Day
         National Get Outdoors Day



    The PSAs encourage America’s youth—specifically African-American children—and their parents to spend more time outside at nearby forests and parks. According to the Forest Service, just over a third of African-American children aged 6 to 12 participated in regular outdoor recreation in 2011, which is 30 percent lower than Caucasian children in the same age range.

        


    The benefits of outdoor activities are clear— lower stress levels and obesity rates, stronger immune systems, and a greater degree of environmental consciousness. You can contribute to our campaign by sharing our PSAs with your readers or pointing them to DiscoverTheForest.org to find great outdoor activities at forests, parks and open spaces in their local area.

    Princess Me


    - Just published is a book based on a true story – one that every girl dreams about – about becoming a princess. -

    While at The Learning Experience® (TLE®), a national academy of early education for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years, Lydia, an African-American girl, shared with classmates that she wanted to be a princess. She was immediately told by her peers that she wasn’t “white enough” and her hair wasn’t “long enough” to be a princess. A deflated Lydia was comforted by TLE® center director Shelly Coss who heard about the incident and decided to go a step further and teach the youngsters that anyone can grow up to be anything they wanted to be regardless of race or hair length. Shelly even showed the class pictures of princesses from all over the world.

    Lydia’s mother, Rita Hutchings, heard about the extra effort that was put forth by the TLE® Wayne, New Jersey, center staff which inspired her to write Princess Me: Every Girl Can Be A Little Princess.

    In her book, Rita acknowledges The Learning Experience writing, “Many thanks [must go] to the staff at the Learning Experience Academy of Early Education who promote respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of children from all cultures. They provide a nurturing, safe and happy environment exposing children to a wide array of cultural backgrounds at an early age, while encouraging an open-minded viewpoint for the future.”

    Princess Me is now available on Amazon.

    As background, The Learning Experience® is the country’s fastest growing early learning academy for children 6 weeks to 6 years old with over 175 centers nationwide. With a greater national emphasis on educational development during the first six years of a child's growth, TLE® prepares children academically and socially via innovative scholastic and enrichment programs such as L.E.A.P® curriculum, a cutting-edge proprietary approach to learning which has 90 percent of TLE® children graduating preschool reading at a Kindergarten or greater level. To complement the academic portion, various enrichment programs crucial to advancing learning and overall balance will be discussed and demonstrated, such as baby yoga, music, physical fitness, manners and etiquette, philanthropy and Spanish language. For more information about TLE® centers and programs, please visit www.thelearningexperience.com.

    So In Style(TM) Barbie(R) Creator's Multi-Cultural Doll Company Moves to Wall Street


    - Former Mattel(TM) Doll Designer, Stacey McBride-Irby, and Her New Line of Multi-Cultural Dolls Make History With Stock Market Debut -

    HOUSTON, Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- One World Holdings (OTCBB:OWOO), parent company to The One World Doll Project, Inc., announced today that it has completed the process of taking the company public and that FINRA has designated its stock symbol as "OWOO." Prior to getting its stock symbol, the Company had filed a Registration Statement with the SEC which had gone effective on December 19, 2012.

    black children
    "We are excited about becoming a public company because this represents a major milestone in setting the stage for One World to be a real competitor in the doll and toy arena. This move will also provide liquidity for our shareholders and facilitate future capital formation and growth," stated Joanne Melton, CEO. "As a public company we expect to make big steps forward in 2013 as we introduce The Prettie Girls! OWP, our unique multi-cultural doll line, to a market that we believe has been waiting for high quality dolls to represent true racial and ethnic diversity," she added.

    About The One World Doll Project
    In her 15 years at Mattel(TM), Stacey McBride-Irby designed and created countless fashions and concepts for the iconic Barbie(R) line. Most notably, Stacey created an entire new line for the company, the So In Style(TM) dolls, the first African-American Barbie dolls by Mattel which, according to Stacey, "more closely represented contemporary girls and young women in the diverse and dynamic urban community". Now she is using her love of doll making and design to create dolls with The One World Doll Project, Inc.

    The One World Doll Project has developed an exciting line of multi-cultural and fashion dolls that it expects will have a major impact in the months ahead. The Prettie Girls! OWP doll line is unique in the way they look, their backgrounds and their stories that capture the essence of what every little girl can embrace and relate to. The Prettie Girls! Ms. McBride-Irby, along with the One World Doll Project, believes that little girls and their mothers are looking for images of beauty and fashion that mirror the same colors, shapes and physical characteristics that they themselves possess.

    The overall vision of the company is to introduce a new way mainstream dolls are designed, marketed and integrated into the fabric of America. The One World Doll Project's core mission is to make one of the most significant, positive cultural impacts on play and in the doll category in recent history.

    More information about One World Holdings, Inc., Stacey McBride-Irby and The One World Doll Project Story and Team can be found at www.oneworlddolls.com.
