WHO ARE WE?

Military gaming 501(c)(3) Operation Supply Drop is designed to build video game care packages (called "supply drops") and send them to soldiers deployed to combat zones and recovering in military hospitals. 

WHAT ARE WE DOING? 

Operation Supply Drop just launched their annual fundraising drive, the "8-Bit Salute to Veterans", trying to raise as much money and physical donations for the troops as possible to clean out the number of wish lists the charity gets in from men and women of the Armed Forces overseas. Last year, we raised $58,000 in games and gear and definitely made a whole bunch of soldiers feel a lot better about being deployed during the Holiday season! This year, we're hoping to break our current "high score"!

THE INDIEGOGO MISSION!

This year, we are going to be attending Holiday parties at the recovery wards of both Walter Reed National Military Hospital and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, where injured soldiers are arriving every day from the fighting still going on in Afghanistan. We plan on making sure that they know that America takes care of its heroes by outfitting their day rooms with fully equipped Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles with 20 launch titles.  

A large portion of the donations Operation Supply Drop gets every year are physical donations from gaming developers and publishers, but there is no way that Microsoft or Sony are going to just donate next generation consoles this close to their launch. So we're here on IndieGogo specifically to manually raise the funds to get the cutting edge gear these guys want, and with your help, we can make the time these men and women are hospitalized a little less painful.

If you have any questions about how you can get involved with Operation Supply Drop, feel free to reach out to admin@operationsupplydrop.org and we'll get you the answers you're looking for!

    See, now you're just showing off. Planning on funding this thing by yourself then? Because you've more or less purchased a next generation console and a stack of games for one of the hospitals single-handedly. You obviously will receive all previous perk rewards, as well as our limited annual minted OSD military challenge coin, generally reserved for higher-end corporate donors, included when we send out end-of-the-year tax-deductible receipts.
