Operation Supply Drop 8-Bit Salute!
Operation Supply Drop is a charitable organization that sends video game care packages to deployed U.S. troops. Why send video games? Because games are engaging, entertaining, and can be played as a group. VIdeo games are morale boosters, highly entertaining, and much needed escapism.
MAKE FUN WHERE THERE IS NONE
Much like Extra Life, you pledge to play video games for 24 hours and collect donations. The donations go towards purchasing and shipping video game care packages to the deployed. How cool is that?
