Organizers of the game-related charity Operation Supply Drop say that its Veterans Day event in November 2012 set the bar extremely high. The charity that sends packages that include games, video game systems, and accessories, received $100,000 in donations for deployed soldiers and soldiers recovering in military hospitals. A lot of the success of the charity drive can be attributed to the generous donations from companies like Capcom. For example, Capcom has made a sizable donation to OSD's 4th of July care package drive (dubbed PIXEL FIREWORKS) that has helped drive the grand total of donations OSD raised since November 2010 to just over the $300,000 mark.
Capcom deserves a pat on the back for helping gamers who find themselves deployed overseas in very dangerous and challenging circumstances and for helping to give a little happiness to those soldiers who find themselves in hospitals recuperating from life changing injuries.
