Operation Supply Drop’s February League of Legends 24-hour charity marathon fundraiser was a massive success, netting us a whole mess of donations to cover our FLASH IGNITE care packages for February. But it’s another month, and the care package requests just keep on coming, so we have to keep filling them out as best we can! We’ve been doubling up care package requests to try and keep on top of them, but we’ve still got three dozen requests just hanging out and waiting for some OSD love.
Calling these care packages code name DIAMOND TIP. Was going to call them “Platinum Club” after receiving a glowing write up for Operation Supply Drop in Forbes magazine, but if you’ve ever done an image search for “platinum club”, you find out fairly quickly that there must be a line of strip clubs associated with the name, so…yeah.
DIAMOND TIP 1:
First up for March, check these folks out. Calling themselves the Death Dealers from Savannah, Georgia, Mark wrote in asking for an Operation Supply Drop care package:
Just recently heard of your great organization that helps service members out. We are a helicopter maintenance company here in the mountains of southern Afghanistan. We work some long hours trying to keep the aircraft flying to support the ground forces and the local Afghan citizens. So when the troops get time off anything to help them unwind is a great benefit. It would be great if your organization could help and sponsor us. Thank you in advance. We have XX males and XX females in the unit. We like all kinds of games since we have so many Soldiers here we can all share around. We are not picky on games at all. We can build a wish list if you would like. If we were to get a new PS3 console or any would be great. Any games new or used are fine!
Well, that sounds like a PS3 request if I’ve ever heard one. Let’s send them one.
DIAMOND TIP 2:
Next up, Martin and some good old infantry folks from my old rival, the 101st Airborne!
