With all these hot new games hitting this month, I know many of you may be wondering how you will ever make room on your gaming shelves that are already buckling under the building weight. [Ed. note: Silly John! Indie games sit on hard drives, not shelves!] How about donating to a really great group of people that work day in and day out to ensure our biggest concerns can be which game is the superior first person shooter, Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3.
The crew at OperationSupplyDrop.org are rallying the troops once again to help gather gaming goodies to send to our military service members currently stationed overseas supporting the efforts of Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
Typically, they attempt to send one care package a month, but with November being their one year anniversary and host of Veterans Day they thought sending a package a week would be a great way to say thank you to the men and women that make our day-to-day lives possible.
For those unaware of Operation Supply Drop, they work with the gaming community to provide game consoles, games and other gaming related items to military units and squadrons in need. These units range from forward operators to medical stations that use the games as a way to blow off some steam in their limited down time.
There are a number of ways to contribute to their cause. They have setup a tax-deductible donation account with ChipIn.com for monetary contributions or people can donate new or used games and equipment. They are currently running a promotion where people that donate $40 or more receive a 1600 Microsoft Points card.
Complete donations and shipping details are available on their site.
