One World Holdings Raises Capital to Fund National Expansion and Convertible Note Elimination

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2015) -  The One World Doll Project, a subsidiary of One World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OWOO), today announced it has raised $648,500 from a group of private investors since January 1, 2015. Additionally, One World has obtained purchase order funding commitments up to an additional $950,000. Each of these investments will provide the company with the capital required to carry out the national expansion of The Prettie Girls! and The Prettie Girls! Tween Scene dolls into big box retail stores and assist in the elimination of toxic debt as laid out in the company's debt retirement and consolidation plan announced in 2014. To date, over $200,000 realized from these investments has been used to complete another round of convertible note elimination and consolidation.

"The strides towards success that One World has made this year, especially our retail distribution deal with Amazon.com and partnership with The Tonner Doll Company, seems to be striking a positive chord with new and current investors," said Joanne Melton, One World Holdings CEO. "We attribute this investor enthusiasm primarily to our eliminating convertible notes from lenders who have a track record of aggressively selling shares into the market with little or no regard for the negative effects on the company's stock price. Our days of being funded by predatory lenders have come to an end and our stock seems to now be showing how well it can perform with the absence of excessive dilution," she added.

The Company has been buoyed by trading activity of its stock which recently achieved a price per share that represents over a 595% increase in value since January 1, 2015.
