Everybody Wins at the Oscars®

Today proudly announced that the very first "GLO TO SLEEP™" masks, available in the U.S., are to be given to all of the non-winning nominees in the five principal categories in the 2008 Oscars® as part of their "Everybody Wins at the Oscars®" gift bags. Manufactured in California, from hypoallergenic materials, the GLO TO SLEEP ™ mask induces a natural drug-free sleep in the wearer, as the eyes focus upwards on pairs of blue luminous points inside the mask; the mind automatically shifts from active beta waves to relaxing, pre-sleep alpha waves.

Possibly the most unusual item in the Gift Bag, because, at first glance it looks like an ordinary sleep mask, but it is so much more, because it is truly the 'gift of sleep' -- and a healthy night's sleep at that. The GLO TO SLEEP™ inventor, and co-founder of its Canadian developers Line 49 Inc., was an oil rig engineer, lucky to get two hours of unbroken sleep a night, so necessity became the driving force behind the sleep mask. Unique and patented, the mask's outer fabric is breathable, super-soft super-light foam which blocks out all light and is custom-made in Europe exclusively for the product. It is extremely comfortable against the skin and is suitable for even those with extreme environmental sensitivities, and has an adjustable Vel-Stretch® strap.

Each of the non-winning nominees in the categories of Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, as well as Host, Jon Stewart, will receive the gift bag, which will include the GLO TO SLEEP™ mask. We are pleased to be able to give the 'gift of a natural night's sleep' to this select group of actors after what must be the most exhausting night of their year -- OSCAR® night," said Mackeonis for, the exclusive US distributor of the GLO TO SLEEP™ mask. "Because the world is 'on' 24/7, our brains are on too, constantly being bombarded with stimulus -- computer screens, blackberries, cell phones, iPods, TV, lights, not to mention our jobs -- people just can't turn off at night when they want to. Actors have the added complexity of needing to be on the set all hours of the day and night, with only a few hours to devote to sleep, which may not come as easily as they'd like, until now," concluded Mackeonis.

The methodology behind GLO TO SLEEP™ is taken from meditation techniques. For centuries, meditation has been widely used worldwide to achieve a state in which no thoughts come to mind. It is widely acknowledged that the act of looking up and focusing the attention on a point between the eyebrows, known as the 'third', or 'spiritual eye', influences brain wave patterns by transforming active beta waves into mind-calming alpha waves. GLO TO SLEEP™ makes it easy to achieve this relaxed state, by the wearer breathing deeply and looking up at the pairs of blue points inside the mask. The result is that thoughts dissipate, the body relaxes and sleep comes easily and naturally.

The GLO TO SLEEP™ mask has been available in the UK and Europe since 2005 and is now making its debut in the United States at the Oscars® in Los Angeles. The GLO TO SLEEP™ mask retails for $64.95 and can be ordered in the US at For more information, contact Peter Mackeonis at peter @ (tel 1.831.840.3729), or visit the GLO TO SLEEP™ US website at
