FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 19, 2009)– WashEZE® 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets has made a major financial commitment as the first official sponsor of www.StripesGAMER.com<http://www.StripesGAMER.com> , the only website specifically designed to serve U.S. military gamers and affiliated personnel. The partnership is designed to continue over the next three years, with the greatest effort being focused on the critical early development stages of the site.
StripesGAMER.com was officially launched in March 2009 by Stars and Stripes and Consumer Solutions Gaming, LLC, to provide gamers in the military and their friends with a place to congregate, compete, maintain a gaming identity, and get fresh gaming news in real time. The site is experiencing rapid growth in users, gaining momentum through the support of numerous partners interested in supporting the military gaming community in this venture.
“As the first sponsor, the up-front development and rollout costs were generously underwritten by WashEZE®,” said Dan Krause, International Sales Director for Stars and Stripes. Continued Krause,“Video games are the #1 source of recreation for deployed military personnel and we have been working on this extension of our Stripes® GAMER bi-monthly print edition for over a year now.” Subscriptions to the StripesGAMER.com site are free to registered users.
“There is no slow down in national security, video gaming, or doing laundry!” quipped Pat Thielke, CEO of Consumer Solutions, Inc., the makers of WashEZE® (and an Airborne infantryman‘back in the day’).“For years WashEZE® has enjoyed the loyal support of customers in the military, and StripesGAMER.com seemed like a great opportunity for WashEZE® to give back in a way that was new– and a whole lot more fun than doing laundry!” Thielke added.
