Global Vision Holdings Inc. Gave Back for the Holidays

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/25/13 -- Global Vision Holdings Inc. (OTCQB: GVHIB) a diversified financial holding company focusing on investments in environmentally responsible, profitable and growing companies worked with two of its subsidiaries, Grocers Direct and Mamma's Best, to show community support during this holiday season.

On Sunday, December 16th representatives from Grocers Direct and Mamma's Best prepared and served lunch to over 20 women at the WISEPlace in Santa Ana, CA. WISEPlace (www.wiseplace.org) has an 85 year history of caring for local women, children and families by meeting basic needs such as housing, food, clothing, physical and emotional nourishment, as well as vocational and life skills training. Using some of their own sauces, Mamma's Best made Citrus chicken, Soy Ginger broccoli, and white rice for lunch with homemade cookies for dessert. They passed out food to the ladies that were present, and also provided them with leftovers to keep in their kitchen for those that were not able to attend. Mamma's Best also donated cases of their sauces for their cook to prepare their daily meals.

On Saturday, December 22nd, Grocers Direct and Mamma's Best visited Grandma's House of Hope (www.grandmashouseofhope.org) a non-profit organization that provides services, programs and affordable housing to under-served and underprivileged women and children in Orange County and surrounding areas. Mamma's Best prepared 100 sandwiches, 50 pulled pork and 50 chicken, using their Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce, as well as homemade cookies for dessert. In addition to providing this lunch, Grocers Direct went along and donated 100 pounds of ground beef to Grandma's House of Hope for use in their various shelters.

Global Vision Holdings Inc. focuses its investments on environmentally and socially conscious companies who make quality products while also giving back to worthy causes. Grocers Direct, a high-end food brokerage service, and Mamma's Best, a female-owned, minority-owned business, like to focus their support specifically on women and children in the community in need. The WISEPlace and Grandma's House of Hope fit this model perfectly. Global Vision Holdings Inc. CEO Glen Carnes said: "Global Vision, Grocers Direct and Mamma's Best are proud to have been a part of these events, and together we will continue to seek out inspiring non-profit charities for which to contribute our time and resources."

About Mamma's Best
Mamma's Best was created through the efforts of three sisters to bring to market some of their family's favorite sauces. The original recipes were developed by their mother, influenced by her roots in SE Asia and their father's Irish American/Southern (Kentucky) roots. After traveling and living in SE Asia, the family moved back to the States and settled in Southern CA. The strong health and wellness movement in CA and their mom's diabetes further influenced the final recipes, taking the traditional flavor influences from three continents and updating them to fit today's modern, healthy lifestyle without compromising taste. The four sauces and marinades currently on shelf range from more of a BBQ sauce typically used on the grill (but not limited to) to marinades that can be used on the grill, stovetop, oven or slow cooker.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
