Signing Works - Deaf Sign Language Dolls With Hearing Aids My name is Emily Paige and I own Signing Works Inc in California. We make the "I Can Sign" doll and bunny. Our dolls are all hand made in America, with hearing aids ;)

We have had such breakthroughs made with our signing dolls and bunnies. We are working to supply a doll or bunny to every signing child. We are currently working with the Lions clubs across the nation to help accomplish this.

We would love to introduce ourselves, since we are a new company. Please check out our site: http://signingworks.net and our news coverage. (We are in the process of updating our web site, we have a temp one up now with products, pictures and news coverage.)

Here is more info us below:

Our relationship with the deaf began 30 years ago when we were in the ministry. Through the years we have maintained those friendships, and our appreciation for the deaf culture has deepened.

We will always be grateful to those we met and the inspiration they gave.

Signing Works, as a business, began in 2009. The I Can Sign Doll© has lived in our hearts and minds for much longer. Our conviction was that deaf and hard-of-hearing children needed a doll that reflected their unique abilities.

We happily discovered that hearing children, as well as those with special needs, love them just as much.

The I Can Sign Doll© is our first endeavor. Other projects are underway. Each is designed to promote the deaf culture and to make it more recognizable throughout the world.

We invite you all to be a part our success through asking questions and making suggestions. A seed you plant might be the next great idea!

Thank you for being a friend,

From all of us at Signing Works

Spirit of Love Film with Deaf and HOH Teens Wins Best Inspirational Film in Houston by Darla Rae (Denver, Colorado) "Spirit of Love", the Mike Glenn story wins "Best Inspirational" Film in Houston

Contact: Kathy Shipp 720-620-0536

Denver CO- Spirit of Love, the Mike "Stinger" Glenn story was a slam dunk with sold out audiences at the TX Christian Film festival in Houston this past weekend and received the award for "Best Inspirational" film.

Many cast members were in attendance including teen actors Brad Hughes, Alexei Taylor, Joz Lichty, Nashville recording artist Laura Dodd, Ketrick “Jazz” Copeland, with filmmaker Darla Rae, and retired NBA player and [FOX Sports Analyst Mike "Stinger" Glenn who plays himself] in the film. (Mike Glenn is AWESOME!!)

Many movie goers with tickets were unable to attend due to overcrowding at the well known Houston Galleria, as a result of the NBA All-star weekend because Texas DOT shut down freeway exists leading to the Galleria and the festival was in the same path.

After holding briefly to allow for traffic issues the film screened to a packed house with both deaf and hearing audience members all who enjoyed the film which screened with "open captions".

The film is inspired by the real life camps which Mike Glenn started for the Deaf and hard of hearing 33 yrs ago. (See terrific interview here: http://www.freecoloradodeaf.com/young-entrepreneurs-and-indie-film-gives-back-through-spirit-of-love-movie.html )

Mel Hughlett, Mike Glenn’s former Saluki college teammate from SIU (Southern Illinois University) and NBA player said "GREAT FILM, Perfect Story".

"As a filmmaker it’s a wonderful opportunity to watch reactions from the back of the room with a live audience" said Rae. This was the first time the film had screened for an audience publicly in the US.

Comment cards were available for attendees and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive and the age range attending was very broad, from age 5-90.

Pastor Arthur Craig from Houston Woodhaven Baptist Deaf Church said "It was Great!" and "So Inspiring!!!" said Kelly Reagan from Houston's Lillian Beard Deaf Center.

Director, Producer Darla Rae said "It can be overwhelming telling a story inspired by a real person who happens to be sitting on the front row watching it unfold on the screen.

However as I watched Mike settle in and laugh and tear up along with other audience members I began to relax and enjoy the moment. Watching Deaf and hearing together enjoying our film side by side with open captions was very touching. We had accomplished one of our major goals"

One person wrote "Thank you for providing a Christian insight into the 'unseen reality' of our Deaf youth in the US!"

Kelly Berger from TX Hands & Voices a nonprofit organization who promotes all aspects of communication amongst the Deaf community wrote "The movie was wonderful! Thank you for making it and thank you for the captions. What a great undertaking! We need more films like this in theaters."

People both Deaf and hearing commented over and over "Very Inspiring, Awesome, and heartwarming!"

The film has a "sweet innocence" lacking in today’s films and may be the "feel good" movie of the year said Bill Shryock. From your lips to Hollywood’s Ears Bill!

"Spirit of Love, the Mike Glenn Story" is now into the next phase making decisions regarding distribution partners, and the avenue that best supports their message, theme and targeted demographic.
