So, Memorial Day weekend is one of my favorite "holiday weekends" of the year. It's not a gift giving holiday like Christmas, however, I think it's important and deserves acknowledgement in its own right. Memorial Day weekend is often looked at as the start of the summer season, and is marked by cookouts with friends and family, or if you're in my circle of friends long gaming events (though that didn't play out so well this year). However, it's really about something far more important. It's a day to recognize those who've served in our armed forces. I have tremendous respect for the men and women who sacrifice of themselves to protect those of us back home. It's with that in mind that I write about another Pittsburgh based charity that I learned about within the past 6 months. They call themselves Stack Up.
Stack Up is a charitable organization that focuses on supporting the military through various means, but primarily through the donation of video games and systems to active duty military. What a wonderful endeavor, to try and bring a little slice of home and comfort to the individuals who are dedicating so much of themselves to serve others. I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with the organizations founder Steve Machuga about a month ago, hoping to get Stack Up involved in our Gaming and Health Expo. It was a real pleasure. So let me share the organizations information so you all can check them out and consider supporting that charity as well as ours. None of us can do everything, so I feel like it's important to help each other out whenever we can, so that we can all achieve our unique and important goals.
