Paula Jones Offers a Story Full of Adventures That Teach Kids Compassion and Respect

Las Vegas, NV – WEBWIRE

Do bullies deserve the punishment they receive? Do they have a chance to change?

Children will surf the waves and dive deep into the ocean in a fanciful tale of adventures and lessons to see a bully reform. “Clark the Shark” is presented by Paula Jones.

Clark is a shark who enjoys surfing. He occasionally preys on lesser marine life by robbing them of their food and chasing and intimidating them. One day, Clark bullies the turtle, Myrtle. Myrtle swam as quickly as she could, and as she passed through a coral formation resembling a doughnut, Clark attempted to do the same but failed due to his size. Helpless, Clark is forced to learn a lesson he will never forget.

Bullying is discussed as a pandemic by “Clark the Shark.” It is a global problem that could have severe effects on the majority of people. Children in kindergarten and early childhood education should learn to value each child as an individual and gain knowledge from “Clark the Shark.” Before they transition to a more advanced school environment, Paula teaches the younger children the importance of treating people the way they want to be treated. She develops strategies, know-how, and initiatives for cultural competency that advance positive relationships and communication growth. She advocates putting a strategic emphasis on prevention rather than treatment, putting into practice tried-and-true intervention strategies that benefit people, families, schools, and communities in real, lasting ways and creating and sustaining supportive social environments in educational and youth-focused settings.

Paula offers a holistic book that engages kids in an undersea journey while teaching them how to be kinder.

She learned about the different characteristics of the many types of sharks. She chose to write a children’s book about the “bull shark” to teach and entertain young children, how to treat others, in hopes it will prevent or minimize any future consequences. She was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas and currently reside in Las Vegas, Nevada enjoying her retirement from luxury real estate after thirty years.

Children and Paula Reto big winners at CP Women’s Open; record attendance and more than $3 million raised for heart health

Calgary – WEBWIRE

Record attendance and incredible performances during the CP Women’s Open helped Canadian Pacific (CP) raise $2.5 million to support the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Foundation and $510,000 for Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital Foundation.

Paula Reto finished the week at 19 under par to take home her first LPGA Tour win and the $352,500 winner’s share of the $2.35 USD million purse, one of the largest for a non-major on the LPGA Tour.

“The CP Women’s Open returned to Ottawa with great fanfare and the best golfers in the world so that CP could raise funds to support CHEO’s important work and continue the legacy of giving to the communities where our employees live and work,” said Keith Creel, CP President and CEO. “The Ottawa community and the world’s best golfers did not disappoint, and we are proud to be a part of this world-class tournament.”

“We congratulate Paula Reto on her masterful play to win the CP Women’s Open,” added Creel. “It was a tremendous week of golf, but more importantly, together we have made a significant contribution to CHEO Foundation and to eastern Ontario, a key province in our network. CP is proud to continue to make a difference in communities across Canada through CP Has Heart, our community investment program supporting heart health initiatives.” 

The total donation is the result of several fundraising efforts of the CP Has Heart campaign. Through CP Birdies for Heart, CP contributed for each birdie made by Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club members prior to the tournament and for each birdie made by LPGA players on the 15th hole during tournament play. CP also matched all donations made during a CHEO campaign online during February, which is heart month.

“This eagerly anticipated week was beyond anything we imagined,” said Steve Read, Acting President and CEO, CHEO Foundation. “When Golf Canada and the LPGA brought this world-class golf tournament to the historic Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club it was an exciting moment for everyone involved. When the generosity of this community, led by CP, turned enthusiasm and elite sport into care for young cardiology patients at CHEO, it became an inspiring reflection of what we can do when we work together. My special thanks to Lorie Kane and Brooke Henderson who showed such kindness to CHEO patient Aurora Amos as she represented all CHEO cardiology patients this week.”

Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital Foundation was the 2022 CP Women’s Open community partner.

“The Foundation would like to thank CP for their support, which helped raise $510,000 for cardiac care at our hospital,” said Kristine Fair, PSFDH Foundation Chair. “Overwhelming community support paired with the matching initiative that CP provided has created double the impact for our hospital. Funds raised through this partnership will allow us to purchase essential cardiac equipment that our healthcare team needs to provide the quality care our community deserves.”

“CP’s continued commitment to leave a meaningful legacy in the name of the CP Women’s Open has been extraordinary,” said Golf Canada CEO Laurence Applebaum. “We are so proud to experience the special impact of CP on the lives of countless Canadians, and we are thrilled that the CHEO Foundation, the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital Foundation, and the eastern Ontario community at large will benefit from their incredible generosity.”

On Friday, CP celebrated Lorie Kane’s remarkable golf career as she finished her 30th and final CP Women’s Open.

“Lorie has made outstanding contributions to women’s golf and the community, including as a CP Ambassador,” said Keith Creel, CP President and CEO. “We cherish Lorie for her contributions as a CP Ambassador since 2014, and I look forward to her continuing as a significant member of the CP team promoting CP Has Heart in the community.”
