Self-Investment Publishing Joins PAWS with Owie BowWowie and Friends

Los Angeles, April 20, 2016 – For Immediate Release

“Comforting the hurts and hearts of hospitalized children and MOMS!”

It’s no surprise that Moms are more stressed-out than ever. Working moms, single moms, blended family moms, first time moms and growing family moms. The pressures to handle all the daily responsibilities and raise healthy well-adjusted children are overwhelming. It is uncontested that being a Mom is the hardest job you’ll ever love!

Now, take the normal stress of motherhood, (raising a healthy child) and add a monster to her child’s closet— cancer, cystic fibrosis, heart defects, diabetes, or one of the many ailments that children are diagnosed with, and all of a sudden her heart changes. Fear of the unknown arrives. Will my child survive? How do I help my child? Will my child have a normal life? How can I give my child everything he/she needs if I’m barely making it now?

Bravery, for these mothers, arrives in spurts. It’s attained within the smile of her child… a positive test result… a moment of hope… within the support of family… or the prayers and friendships of others.

Did you know that each year over 20 million children are hospitalized with a life-threatening illness and are in need of emotional comfort?

Mothers who take care of children with life-threatening illnesses stand face-to-face each day with the harsh reality that their children may not be here tomorrow, so they learn to appreciate each moment, and each moment becomes a valued memory.

Now, if a mother is 24/7 taking care of the wellness of her child, who is helping to take care of her emotional wellness?

Reports indicate that mothers find their best support from other moms, those who have felt and are handling the same stressors, and this is why we are pleased to announce that Self-Investment Publishing has joined PAWS with Owie BowWowie and Friends Foundation.

Owie BowWowie and Friends Foundation is a 501(c)3 which gives gifts of comfort to children who are hospitalized and in need of a FURiend named: Owie BowWowie. “Owie” is an endearing, plush dog who comes with his own bandages, comforting blanket, PAWFURmational story book, carrying case — and is delivered with a hug.

Self-Investment Publishing, has published a special-edition book specifically for MOMS titled: Stress Out! Moms Show Stress Who’s The Boss!  This 154-page gem is written by MOMS for MOMS, with the hope of inspiring, entertaining, educating and providing MOMS with a moment of comfort in knowing that they are not alone in dealing with the never-ending stresses of motherhood!

This Mother’s Day, take a moment to think of all the mothers you know… especially the ones who are fighting for the lives of their children, and let them know you are thinking of them and their child. With every purchase of our Special Owie BowWowie and Friends Edition of Stress Out! Moms Show Stress Who’s The boss, Self-Investment Publishing will share proceeds from sales with Owie BowWowie and Friends Foundation to comfort the hurts and hearts of hospitalized children and the moms who love them!

PearlsSelf Investment Publishing has published a special edition of best-selling book Stress Out, show stress who’s the Boss, to benefit Pearls of Hope®.

Stress is a constant in our lives – such a constant that we actually don’t realize we are under stress, we think it’s “just part of life.” Health surveys report that over 70% of people feel stress every day. Some stress is helpful, but most stress is destructive; it can age you and it can kill you. This book is a joint effort of several authors who share their expert advice and experience PLUS stories and testimonials from individuals interviewed during extensive search for solutions to teach stress who’s the boss.

The focus of this book is STRESS OUT, not Stressed Out. Stressed-out is a condition you may be experiencing; Stress Out is a solution, a command to tell stress who’s the boss. This book provides quick tips, recommendations and techniques that you can use to reduce, release and/or manage your stress.

Author and publisher, Sumner Davenport has received several endorsement and accolades from the readers who field tested the techniques in this book. “What I’ve attempted to do, is make it simple for people to find easy solutions for their stress, and to help others at the same time. Proceeds from all Stress Out books are shared with selected charities. This special edition is to help Pearls of Hope®, so they can continue to help children.” The primary mission of Pearls of Hope®, a registered trademark of The Lorraine Jackson Foundation, is to provide college scholarships for children who have lost a parent to breast cancer.

In these personal stories you might read something that helps you to understand your animal companion’s stress and their needs, or find a way to prevent accidents, injury and some illnesses.
