Hostway Delivers Kick-It Special Offer to Support Right to Play's Development Programs

Hostway Corporation, a global leader in infrastructure and Web application hosting, announced today that it will deliver "Kick-It", a campaign to support humanitarian organization Right To Play in developing countries through the sales of Windows Server.

Right To Play is a leading international humanitarian and development organization using the transformative power of sport and play to build essential skills in children and thereby drive social change in communities affected by war, poverty and disease. When Windows Server 2008 is purchased with a hosted server through Hostway Corporation, for a limited time, customers will receive the "Kick-It” special offer of double the RAM and double the bandwidth.

While the world is watching the World Cup in South Africa this summer, you can give children the right to play. Microsoft Corp. and its hosting partner community are working together to support Right To Play's programs, which use the transformative power of sport and play to build essential life skills for children living in communities affected by war, poverty and disease. When you purchase Windows Server 2008 through Hostway Corporation, Microsoft will donate to Right To Play to support its programs in 23 countries around the world.

"The World Cup is a fantastic platform for international attention and multi-cultural cooperation," said Todd Benjamin, vice president Enterprise Hosting, Hostway Corporation. "With Microsoft and its hosting community, we hope to harness some of that attention to assist a very worthy world cause and make a significant ongoing impact."

"Microsoft is pleased to work with partners such as Hostway to help build awareness about Right To Play with the 'Kick It' Windows Server promotion," said Brian Goldfarb, director of the developer platform group at Microsoft. "By building solutions on the Microsoft Web Platform and deploying onto Windows Server via our hosting partners, developers have a great power to change the world, both creatively and practically."

"Our mission is to use sport and play as a tool to help children build critical life skills, such as self-esteem, respect for oneself and others, tolerance, and teamwork. We believe this is critical to a child's development and must be fostered in order to create a safer, healthier and more productive society," said Johann Olav Koss, President and CEO, Right To Play. "Each week, almost 700,000 children attend regular Right To Play programming and special sports events made possible by the contributions of companies such as Microsoft along with its hosting partners."
