Ralph Oats & Wellness International Focus on Stopping Domestic Violence

PLANO, TX--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) -  Ralph Oats and his wife, Cathy, founders of Wellness International Network, Ltd., an undisputed leader in the health and wellness industry known for its top-selling weight management line, BioLean® System, and highly concentrated omega-3 supplement, WINOmeg3complex™, have always focused on giving back to others in need. Most recently they have decided to focus their efforts on The Family Place, a Dallas-based organization that helps victims of domestic violence.

According to the FBI, a woman is beaten every 15 seconds. In Dallas county more than 265,000 people are victims of domestic violence, and over half of the homeless population is made up of women and children. "The statistics of domestic violence are sobering," says Ralph Oats. "Cathy and I have lived our lives helping people take control of their physical, mental and financial wellness through our company. We know how scary it is to make a decision to change and can only imagine how much strength it takes to start over after being in an abusive, even life-threatening relationship. We are thankful there are organizations like The Family Place to help people start over and take control of their lives."

Wellness International Network has highlighted The Family Place on its online shopping cart so consumers worldwide have the option to learn about the life-saving work this organization does and donate to the charity while purchasing Wellness International Network's high-quality nutritional supplements. To further support The Family Place, Wellness International Network Independent Distributors will be hosting a Spa Day at the company's corporate headquarters in Plano, Texas on August 27th. Attendees will sample the company's exclusive cosmeceutical line WINSpa Collection and have the opportunity to purchase the results-oriented WINSpa Collection with a portion of the sales going to support The Family Place.

The Family Place is the largest family violence service provider in the Dallas area reaching out to thousands of victims of family violence each year with award-winning programs that keep women and children safe. For 30 years, the Family Place has been devoted to ending the epidemic of family violence. This charitable organization believes that intervention, emergency shelter, and crisis counseling for all victims -- women, children and men -- will save lives and that transitional housing and case management will transform lives for the better.
