MOG Nation Members! Now that things have settled down from our Extra Life marathon, it’s time to move onto our next charity project: Games 4 Soldiers! Games for Soldiers is a charity created by film and video game voice actress Catherine "Cat” Taber, who most notably portrays the voice of Senator Amidala on the hit TV Series, Star Wars: Clone Wars. Games for Soldiers provides new and used video games, consoles, comic books and related items to our soldiers currently deployed overseas. During the rare downtime for our nation’s protectors, video games can provide them safe, relaxing entertainment and take their minds off of the stresses they face on a daily basis. Last year, we were able to donate nearly 500 games, comics, books, videos, and magazines to our deployed soldiers! In 2013-14, we aim to increase that number exponentially.
From now until Spring 2014, MOG Nation will act as the hub and collection center for this worthy charity. Now is a great time! With the new consoles launching in November 2013, this is the perfect time to donate some of your used games to GFS!
How do I donate?:
Donations of new or used video games (for any console or PC), gaming consoles, comic books and similar items to be sent to our soldiers can be sent to:
GFS Charity Drive
18340 Yorba Linda Blvd
Yorba Linda, CA 92886
All donations will be collected and packaged by Kash. The final shipment of donations are hand delivered to Cat Taber in Southern California at a date yet to be determined.
Don’t have games to give? Monetary donations to assist with the parcel costs associated with sending items overseas can be directed to the Games for Soldiers website at www.gamesforsoldiers.com .
