HAYWARD, Calif., October 1, 2001—Starwire Corporation, provider of Web content management solutions for networked communities, today announced that it has donated OnlineGiving services to the Salvation Army Relief Network (http://www.salvationarmyreliefnetwork.org) and the Todd Beamer Memorial Foundation (http://www.beamerfoundation.org) in order to help these organizations raise funds online for national relief efforts related to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The Salvation Army Relief Network (http://www.salvationarmyreliefnetwork.org) is a special Web site set up to acquire donations for the Salvation Army’s national headquarters in order to provide shelter, food, and clothing for relief workers in New York and Washington, D.C. This network is affiliated with the official Salvation Army USA Web site, http://www.salvationarmyusa.org, which runs on Starwire Interlink™.

The Todd Beamer Memorial Foundation (http://www.beamerfoundation.org), founded by Todd’s wife, Lisa Beamer, is dedicated to assisting youth, promoting Christian athletics, supporting the concept of family, and providing support for families of fellow victims of the terrorist attacks. Todd Beamer was one of the men who heroically organized the diversion of the fourth hijacked airliner, United Flight 93, from reaching its intended destination on September 11, 2001.

“Starwire mourns with families who have lost loved ones and wishes to help by providing relief organizations with the tools to raise funds online,” said Dave Jaworski, President and CEO of Starwire Corporation. “We hope to empower and serve by providing ways to help charitable organizations use the Internet to their advantage at this critical time.”
