JetBlue Airways and KaBOOM! Embark on their 15th Playground Build Together

OAKLAND, Calif., Aug. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) today is proud to announce a partnership with the Community School for Creative Education and KaBOOM! to build a playground in Oakland, CA, reaffirming its commitment to the West Coast community. JetBlue and long-standing partner KaBOOM! have worked together over the last seven years to build playgrounds for children across the airline*s network. The playground location was determined in February by JetBlue*s customers who were invited to vote on the next playground location on its Facebook page. The Bay Area was the lucky winner and will have a brand new park this summer, the 15th playground built through the partnership and the third in California.

**While it may be our 15th KaBOOM! build, this is the first customer chosen one! We*re really proud to have our customers and crewmembers participate in the process from day one and couldn*t be happier with the location,** said JetBlue*s Director of Corporate Social Responsibility Icema Gibbs. **We look forward to a day of building and fun-filled activities at the Community School for Creative Education and KaBOOM! We*ve been an active member of the Bay Area community since our beginning and can*t think of a better way to strengthen our commitment than to partner with KaBOOM! to create a safe space for our kids to play at the Community School for Creative Education.**

**KaBOOM! is thrilled to continue our tremendous work with our National Partner, JetBlue,** said KaBOOM! Founder and CEO Darell Hammond. **Every child deserves to have a great place to play and we made that possible for children at the Community School for Creative Education, while bringing KaBOOM! one step closer to our vision of a great place to play within walking distance of every child in America.**

**Community School for Creative Education is honored to be chosen as recipients of a KaBOOM! JetBlue playground!** said Dr. Ida Oberman, Community School for Creative Education Founder & Director of Development and External Affairs. **We are thrilled that the children of Community School and our neighborhood will have the opportunity to enjoy recreation and play in a healthy, safe, and fun environment. This playground fulfills an important aspect of our school mission, which is to provide children with opportunities for play and creativity. On behalf of our school community and neighborhood, we are eternally grateful to KaBOOM! and JetBlue!**

As the funding partner for this build, JetBlue volunteers and community residents will work side-by-side to create a new playground for the children of the Community School for Creative Education. This will be JetBlue*s second playground built in California this year and record fourth playground built in 2012 (Long Beach, CA; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Boston, MA: San Francisco, CA; and New York, NY). In seven years, JetBlue and KaBOOM! have built 15 playgrounds, engaged more than 3,000 volunteers and served more than 8,000 children every year by providing a safe place to play.
