August 1, 2013, Marietta, G —
Technologies, Inc. proudly announced it’s confirmed contribution to
the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). The
donation made is 25 percent of all Torrid Technologies software sales from both the
Memorial Day and Independence Day weekends. The final donation was sent on July
16th directly to Wounded Warriors.
The decision to donate such a substantial percentage of sales was made
by Torrid Technologies’ interim CEO, Tim Turner. After an overwhelming response
from the Torrid Technologies customer base, in support of the initial Memorial
Day weekend donation effort, Turner made a determination to extend the effort
to the Independence Day weekend as well.
The Fourth of July, or Independence Day, is a federal holiday that
celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4,
1776. Memorial Day, the American
holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while
serving in the U.S. military. Many cities and towns hold parades on
Memorial Day in honor of military heroes, as well as current military personnel
and members of veterans’ organizations.
“There was such an amazing response
from our community for the Memorial Day Wounded Warrior Project donation drive.
It only made sense to do it again during Independence Day.” says Tim Turner,
one of the founders of Torrid Technologies. “We wanted to do something real to
help those that have served our great country, but have been wounded from that
service. Our company is proud to honor our injured service members by
giving a portion of our sales over both weekends to the Wounded Warrior
In honor of our veterans and military personnel, Torrid Technologies decided
not to just have another Memorial Day or Independence Day sale, but decided to
find a way to truly help some of our veterans that are still living. This
lead to Torrid Tech’s decision to donate 25% of its Memorial Day and
Independence Day weekends’ software sales to the Wounded Warrior
The Wounded Warrior Project website outlines its vision “To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members
in our nation’s history”, a vision fully supported by the Torrid Technologies
“Although we aren’t selling the traditional Memorial or Independence Day
items, we still feel the need to do our part, Even though we are a software
company, we want to do what we can to help our wounded warriors on Memorial Day
and Independence Day,” he adds.
The Wounded Warrior Project’s stated purpose is to raise awareness and
enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help
injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique,
direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service
members. Some of the programs it offers to serve warriors and their families
include a “Combat Stress Recovery Program”, job training and transition, as
well as family support services.

“Quick, Simple, and Visual” retirement
income planning tool that anyone can use to create a basic retirement plan, even those
that are not that good with a computer.
