Industry: Human Resources

Press Release Summary: Airline Ambassadors Intl. and black & light co. have
partnered up after the highly successful 2008 Global Compassion ball in NYC. 10% of
proceeds from each candle sold using code AAI100 will go directly to benefit the
Airline Ambassadors organization.

Press Release Body: Airline Ambassadors was founded in 1996 by Nancy Rivard. A
flight attendant working for American Airlines, she was able to leverage her
industry resources to help underprivileged children and families in communities
across the globe. It began as a group of airline personnel, and now includes over
6000 members who donate their time and money for causes ranging from child
development to international disaster relief.

Since its inception in '96, Airline Ambassadors has hand-delivered over $46 Million
in aid to children in over fifty-two countries. It has impacted over 500,000
children in many different ways including opening medical clinics and escorting
children in need through surgeries that they otherwise would be unable to receive.

After donating several hundred candles to the 2008 Global Compassion Ball at the
United Nations building on October 16th, Holly Eve - founder of black & light co. -
was delighted to be able to meet Nancy Rivard at the event. Holly, a retired
elementary teacher of twenty-five years and lifelong advocate of childhood
development, felt an immediate connection to Rivard and knew the mission of Airline
Ambassadors was truly something that paralleled her vision for the future of black &
light co.

Black & light co. will now be donating 10% of proceeds from the sale of all candles
through its website when the code AAI100 is used during checkout. This money will go
directly to Airline Ambassadors Intl. to aid in its ongoing effort to improve the
lives of children and families across the globe.

During these troubling economic times, Holly and black & light co. have continued to
focus on ways to change others' lives, and not necessarily ways to cut costs or trim
losses. Helping others, especially children in need, has been a pillar in the
foundation of the principles black & light co. was built upon. Their partnership
with Airline Ambassadors reinforces these principles and increasingly solidifies the
vision that Holly Eve has set for the company.
