You went big.
And we owe you some big thanks.
On Veterans Day, we partnered with Stack-Up.org, a charity dedicated to giving joy to the troops with our shared hobby of gaming. We asked our partners, streamers, and the community to step up, open their wallets, and make sure our veterans get a little love. Instead of simply sharing a little love, the Squad community did what they do best: conquered it. Even better, you conquered it for Stack-Up.org.
Thanks to you, the donations at the time of writing total $30,480.78. We’re very proud to announce that this is the second year in a row that the original goal has been absolutely smashed. That’s $30,480.78 to improve the lives of those who have dedicated theirs to service. Just … wow.
More than 34,000 viewers tuned in to watch the Call to Arms. Some of the best Squad action we’ve ever seen – no joke – came to us courtesy of the International Squad Knockout Tournament, North American Squad, Community Clan Fight Night, Squad Ops, an army of streamers, and squaddies like you. None of which would have been as exciting and entertaining without our hosts DesmoLocke, Haynick31, JohnnyOmaha, and runningDuck. Thank you so much.
Every streamer that stepped up to fight for charity showed us the heart of the community: LtVictory, MrChaggy, PmsProxy, Shroud, and wish took up the banner and astounded us with their generosity and love from their fans. Thousands of players around the world got to know Stack-Up.org a little better because of you and that is something to be proud of. Thank you so much.
So, thank you. Thank you so much for your generosity. Thank you so much for opening your hearts again. We’ve been honored by the opportunity to fight alongside you and we hope you’ll join us again. If you missed the opportunity to give back, the campaign remains open until the end of the month.
