"Donate Games to the Troops in Iraq" with Cheap Ass Gamer
Have some games you've finished last year? Would you rather not add to Gamestop's insane used sales numbers? Well with Cheap Ass Gamer's help, you can send your old (or new) games to deployed troops in Iraq. From CheapyD's post:
No matter your stance on the war in Iraq, I think we can all agree that our soldiers have a very rough time over there. Therefore, I am very happy to bring to your attention the CAG "Donate Games to the Troops in Iraq" Campaign. CAG neushane, who is a member of the US Navy and is currently deployed in Fallujah, is spearheading the effort to collect your used (or new) games, and distribute them amongst his fellow troops.
What's also very cool about this charity is that you'll be given a picture of the troop with his or her new game (your old game) once it arrives. This is also a great way to show that gamers are truly good people and not what the media and popular culture tends to portray us as.
