As some of you may (or may not) know, I recently returned from a deployment to Afghanistan. During that time, I made many wonderful contacts in the computer and gaming sector via email and was able to bring in donations to our unit for gaming and computing (including consoles, components for three full gaming PCs and more games than I could shake a stick at… and I tried). It really did make things more tolerable over there. After a long week of fighting the good fight, it’s nice to be able to kick off your boots and frag your buddy in Halo 3.
Now, more on point, I am beginning a drive for donations to other units in Afghanistan that are related to ours. For as much love as the troops do get these days, sadly troops deployed to Afghanistan are often overlooked due to some odd out of sight, out of mind mentality. My mission now that I’m home is to drum up video game donations to send to these units in areas similar to the one I was in, meaning remote Afghanistan. Currently, across these units I know of many laptops (PC Games, software), a couple of Xbox 360s, at least one PSP and one DS. I’m not currently aware of any PS3s out there, but I’m sure there will be one.
What I’m looking for is your kind donations of new or used video games for the above mentioned systems or hardware that you think they may be willing to use (extra controllers, batteries, memory cards… systems? :p). They don’t have to be in GREAT condition, just usable. If anyone is interested, please email me X E P H E R Y S(@)gmail(.)com for more information. Thanks!
