    Amount Raised So Far: $1920.00 USD / Goal: $6,000 ($20 per member)


    CLICK HERE TO MAKE YOUR DONATION! REMEMBER TO JOIN OUR TEAM FIRST PER THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW!

    TL;DR:
    • We're raising funds for StackUp.Org, an amazing charity that supports active and prior service members and veterans through gaming!
    • Anyone can participate.
    • Members will be eligible for the StackUp Donation Medal!
    • Let's take it to the next level and show the gaming community how an amazing community like ours can make an impact in the real world!

    Donations are live!!! Our goal is $6,000 USD, roughly $20 per active member. We're not simply asking you to make a donation, we're asking you to go to friends, family and even your employers to raise money for this fantastic charity. Who could say no to veterans?? We don't want to meet this goal, we want to BLOW IT OUT OF THE WATER! We want to show this great charity and the rest of the milsim community how the Cav rolls. ANYONE CAN PARTICIPATE! Former members, regular players on the servers or anyone that wants to help us knock our goal out of the park!

    Join our https://Tiltify.Com fundraising team, 7th Cavalry Gaming. This will allow you to contribute the money you have collected to the campaign. Tiltify's website collects donations using Paypal for fundraising campaigns, tracks them and forwards them to the designated charity. More on Tiltify further down.

    As to the why of supporting StackUp.Org, ask anyone who has served overseas what downtime is like in between missions or operations. Sheer boredom. Too much time to think. Gaming has a real impact on mental health, both in the service and out. Stack-Up.Org was founded by soldiers who served in combat and who know what it's like when you have too much time on your hands and are stuck in your head.

    They send our active duty and prior service members games and equipment to help them get through the downtime and out of their heads. They take deserving veterans to conferences such as ComiCon, E3 and others, giving them a once-in-a-lifetime experience. They provide 24/7/365 crisis counseling via their discord server and they have support groups set up throughout the world that act as focal points for support and volunteer work.

    Even if you never served a day in uniform, as gamers, we can all relate to the value of the bonds we make through gaming in a community and how gaming helps us get through life's challenges.

    Tips on Fundraising


    Some important points to note for approaching people to raise funds for this:
    • Be clear about what you are asking for and why. Explain what StackUp.Org https://stackup.org is all about and direct them to the website for more information.
    • Many employers have matching donation programs. Ask your employer or use this handy tool to check and see if your employer has a matching program: https://doublethedonation.com/stackup

    Anyone who wants to make a donation can do it in several ways, using Tiltify.Com. Tiltify uses Paypal as a payment processor:
    • Give the money to you, you make the donation on behalf of everyone you have collected from using your Tiltify account. (More on this further down)
    • Friends, family or employers can create a Tiltify.Com user account and request to join our fundraising team. They can then directly contribute to the campaign when it starts. When joining our team, they should let you know what their username is so we can track their contributions as yours.

    In the United States, a donation receipt can be used with your taxes for donations over $250 USD. You can request a donation receipt on the StackUp.Org website using their contact form. StackUp.Org TAX ID: 47-5424265

    @Argus.J - Total noob to this. How do I get the money I got from folks (basically family) donated via my tiltify account? I assume I'm missing something.

    There's a couple ways Thump:

    1. Put the money in your bank account, use your Tiltify account and donate the correct amount to the campaign.
    2. Have family/friends create a tiltify account and point them to the donate link in this post.
