Life got away from me last weekend and I was unable to assemble our Epic Games themed care package following our Epic sized Gears of War 3 gamernight/charity raffle.  Congratulations to the winner of our $350 Project Triforce Marcus Fenix bust raffle, Mr. Cory Allshouse; his donation of $20 was worth seven tickets in our charity raffle, and his lucky number came up!

Anyway, back on target, CRIMSON OMEN is primed like a satchel charge and on its way to Jaron and his team in Afghanistan!  Here’s what’s in it; obviously with the centerpiece of the care package being all the gorgeous Epic Games/Gears of War 3 signed swag Epic Games donated to us!   I also want to take a minute and recognize our latest corporate donors, the folks over at Gamer Grub and PDP (Performance Designed Products) for their donation this month! All games are 360 discs unless listed below!

I think this second grader has really got a future in art design.

Good, I love when our care packages are around the $2000 mark; raises the overall care package dollar amount and makes for a hell of a Powerpoint slide bullet when I present my little media kit to prospective donors and interested parties.  Okay, too much “inside baseball”, as it were.

We’re getting ready to announce our next care package shortly, but in the meantime if you’d like to help us build video game care packages for troops deployed to Afghanistan, here are four simple ways to donate:

1) Use the Chipin link on the front of Front Towards Gamer.com.  OR
2) Use the Chipin link on the front page of Operation Supply Drop.org.  OR
3) Make a Paypal donation to donations@operationsupplydrop.org.
4) If you don’t want to send cash, you can simply send your used games or gear to the following address to make the next care package:

Operation Supply Drop
9301 Alvyn Lake Circle
Bristow VA, 20136

Thanks, everyone!
