What Do Exploding Shaving Cream, Disease and Major League Baseball Pitchers Have in Common? Operation AC

NEWARK, DE -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 27, 2005 -- Operation AC is a non-profit organization that supplies non-combat, nonstandard-issue essentials to our troops in the Middle East. Operation AC started with a son's request for help in dealing with the oppressive Iraqi heat. Air conditioners are not standard issue; but they quickly become essential when it is hot enough to melt soap and explode cans of shaving cream. Frankie Mayo, founder of Operation AC, responded to her son's request by shipping 10 air conditioners to her son's unit stationed in Iraq. Today, Operation AC is a multi-million dollar non-profit organization that is responsible for delivering a variety of non-combat items to our overseas troops, including over 9000 air conditioners and generators.

Now Operation AC is tackling health issues. They have two new projects.

--  Save Ali: They are raising $150,000 to save Ali Mouhamed Aboud, a nine
    year old Iraqi boy who needs life-saving heart surgery that can not be
    performed in Iraq.  This humanitarian project is supported by Major League
    Baseball Pitchers Tom Glavine and Al Leiter.
--  Soldier's Health Challenges:  A recent Center for Disease Control
    report detailed the risks of antibiotic-resistant infections to our troops.
    In addition overseas health personnel have communicated their concerns
    about exposure to chronic stress and disease. Soldier's Health Essentials
    was created to address the soldier's health needs. In support of Operation
    AC and our troops, Daily Plus is offering the Soldier's Health Essentials
    at 50% off plus free shipping for tax-deductible purchases made on behalf
