Prettie Girls Accelerate Roll-Out Into H-E-B Stores; One World Doll Project Set to Initiate Sales Activation

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 17, 2014) - One World Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: OWOO) ("One World") announced today that its subsidiary, The One World Doll Project ("OWDP") and HEB Grocery Company, LP ("H-E-B") have accelerated the proposed timeline to roll-out The Prettie Girls!™ multi-cultural dolls into H-E-B stores. OWDP is currently organizing inventory and preparing for an anticipated activation (event) meant to inaugurate its first major superstore debut.

"This is a very big moment in any company's operation," stated Joanne Melton, CEO of One World Holdings. "When the creative genius sparks and a concept is born; after much hard work and dedication is put forth, the dream becomes a reality. The dream was Trent T. Daniel's, the reality is The One World Doll Project; and now in 2014, the world can share the vision of Stacy McBride-Irby."

In a recent April 11th, 2014 release, Ms. Melton noted the speed at which some of the superstores encouraged the Company to roll-out The Prettie Girls!™ product line. The acceleration of the H-E-B roll-out is evidence of the enthusiasm to bring The Prettie Girls!™ to the public. It may also serve as an indication of the Company's growth potential.

The Company has not formally announced either the official H-E-B roll-out date or the time of the contemplated activation; nor have the number of stores or dolls intend for the initial roll-out been disclosed. Management does however confirm that orders for The Prettie Girls!™ have been placed by H-E-B, and the dates for the anticipated activation/roll-out have been internally verified.
