FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
WebsitesForHeroes.com Launches Corporate Sponsorship Program to Aid Families of Overseas Troops
Corporate America now able to sponsor interactive websites that keep military families connected during long deployments
IRVINE, CA, March 7, 2007 – DigitalPost Interactive (OTCBB: DGLP, www.DigitalPostInteractive.com), a provider of user-friendly web platforms for digital media sharing and social networking, announced today the launch of a corporate sponsorship program for www.websitesforheroes.org, a nationwide service that helps America’s overseas troops stay connected with their families by providing free, interactive family websites during overseas deployments.
“In the past few months, we’ve seen a real upsurge in the number of military families waiting for sponsors,” said Terry Gniffke, CEO of Caliber Media Group. “Long deployments can make it extremely hard for families to stay connected. But with the help of new corporate sponsors, our brave service men and women can continue sharing life’s most precious moments through the latest technology on the Web, giving them a little piece of home when they need it most.”
Launched in 2006, WebsitesForHeroes.com is a joint effort by two California patriots – Terry Gniffke of Caliber Media, a former Marine and Vietnam veteran, and Michael Sawtell, CEO of DigitalPost Interactive, a provider of advanced family website technology (www.thefamilypost.com) – to keep military families connected and to inspire hope during difficult times.
Originally created to let ordinary Americans sponsor families, the program is now opening up sponsorship opportunities to corporate America in order to meet the growing list of families still waiting for sites. As part of the new program, companies can now become either a silver, gold, or platinum sponsor by supporting as few as 25 families.
“These sites provide a whole new way for military families to communicate,” said Michael Sawtell, CEO, DigitalPost Interactive. “Through our advanced Web 2.0 platform, spouses on both sides of the ocean can now share videos, photos, online diaries, and even message boards where loved ones can post words of support. The result is a rich, warm family experience that bridges the miles in ways ten minute phone calls simply cannot.”
