The Squad Development team in conjunction with our streaming partners and friends are teaming up for an extended charity drive supporting Stack-Up a charity that uses video games a medium to connect with and support both deployed soldiers and those who have retired from active duty.
The Squad community is filled with veterans of all generations and we are very fortunate to have the opportunity to play our game with them on a regular basis. They have become the back bone of many of the best communities and clans and we greatly appreciate their passion for Squad.
Veteran's day and our Veteran's day charity and streaming event is an opportunity for us to raise funds on their behalf to help their brothers and sisters in the armed forces. As our own Veterans on our development team (2 US Airforce, 1 Royal Marine and 1 US marine) have told us sometimes a bit of extra support is all that is needed to help one of their own make a change to improve their outcome.
Our hope is that by becoming a fundamental pillar of Stack-up, Squad and it's community can start to affect change on a larger scale and encourage others to do the same.
On top of our 2016 donation of $10,000 to Stack-Up, the development team has dedicated to donating $5 per item (our profits) from our merchandise store.
We hope you can help us add to that total in 2016.
Stack-Up is about using the awesome power of gaming to support US, NATO, and Australian/New Zealand veterans around the world! CALL TO ARMS is Stack-Up's year round drive to support our programs:
SUPPLY CRATES: giant boxes of the latest in games and gear sent to combat zones, humanitarian missions, or troops recovering in military hospitals to raise morale, build camaraderie, combat PTSD, and stem the tide of veteran suicide!
AIR ASSAULTS: flying deserving veterans to gaming and geek culture events such as Penny Arcade Expo, Comic Con, or E3
THE STACKS: Our local volunteer teams, coming together to support military personnel on bases and around their community
RED SHIRT RAIDERS: Veteran and veteran-supporter online gaming clans, where vets can game with one another in a veteran-friendly environment, making them feel like a part of an organization after leaving the unique camaraderie of having served in the military!
