Okay, SO WHAT if Front Towards Gamer’s charity wing, Operation Supply Drop, got written up in the LA Times? I mean, we only send thousands of dollars in video games care packages to troops in Afghanistan; if they think that’s impressive, they should wait to see what we’ve got in store for this Veterans Day (by the way, it’s totally awesome that they did this, thanks a ton to the lovely miss Noelene Clark (@noeleneclark) from the LA Times for helping get the word out about the charity)!
So the ORIGINAL plan was to get our FOUR HORSEMEN care package out the door either the day before or the day after the 4th of July. You know, ‘Merica and the 4th of July, etc, right? Well, the problem with being a one man Santa’s workshop of video game care packages is that when you come down with a 102 degree fever, production grinds to a halt.
Feeling better Friday, I was able to put together FOUR HORSEMEN and get it in the mail Saturday morning, heading to Afghanistan to Tyler and his platoon of fire-fighting Army engineers!
These care packages are getting a bit absurd!
Anyway, onto to the next package!
Our next care package has been co-opted by the good folks of Epic Games. You know, the Gears of War/Infinity Blade folks? Yeah, that’s them. Anyway, Epic Games is helping to promote our next care package, which we named in their honor: CRIMSON OMEN (the red skull Gears of War logo), going to Jaron (pictured above) and his team of signal guys in Eastern Afghanistan attached to an Army Stryker brigade.
You know, and even if you can’t donate, just help get the word out on Twitter, Facebook, and other various social media links! You help out and it costs you nothing but a few seconds of your time!
