The legend of the Supply Drop aka a Video Care Package has certainly grown as we’ve grown over the years. This program focuses on sending a crate of video game themed goodies to US, NATO & ANZAC deployed service members, military hospitals and to MWRs singularly focused on building morale and camaraderie.
While there are many amazing military charities and social clubs around the world, we felt no one organization was serving the social needs of this current generation of veterans. With the help of many of our veteran volunteers, The Teams was born. The Teams bridges the gap between military and civilian and brings them both together for meaningful community in dozens of cities and countries around the world.
Thank You Deployments
Nominated by our community and partner organizations, a Thank You Deployment is a VIP experience provided to a deserving veteran. These experiences are diverse including opportunities to train or game with a professional athlete, first-look fun at gaming conferences like E3, ride-alongs at supercar races or all-access to the XGames. Regardless of the experience this program show that "Thank You" is more than just words.
A fundraising program like no other, 8-Bit Salute has grow into the largest "Gaming for Troops" movement on the planet. While thousands play year-round with a focus on raising awareness and donations for OSD, major tent-pole events revolve around Military Appreciation Month (May) and VETober (October). Play Games, Support Troops.
