Get Your Oola ON!

When Oola founder Amy Humes moved to New York City after college, her father presented her with a “positivity card”—a list of empowering messages handwritten on a pink index card that she could carry in her purse. He hoped his daughter would read the messages written there when she needed a boost of confidence.  Years later, after having children of her own, Amy came up with Oola Reusable Graphics—printed “buttons” that convey messages of positivity and hope.  Check out her website and get your OOLA ON www.oolaoola.com.  Also download the free 60 Seconds to Peace App for your IPhone or IPad and you too can share in spreading peace across the world.
