    Amount Raised So Far: $3743.00 USD / Goal: $6,000 ($20 per member)


    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!

    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.

    @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.

    The Tiltify site is having technical issues. Hold off on donations for several days. I will advise.
