Stack-Up hand-picks deserving veterans and pays for them to attend life-changing video game and geek culture events.
Whether it be a Comic-Con, an Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), a Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) or even a game developer studio tour, we strive to connect, engage, and uplift those who have served our country honorably.
With the help of our local Stacks providing support, we make sure those veterans have a weekend with unforgettable experiences. With graditude, we hope to bring memories they can look back on with positivity and encouragement for the future.
Stack-Up’s mission brings together both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming.
With the motto “Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion”, we welcome veterans and civilians who connect with that mission and want to help further it.
Stack-Up runs on the support of those who think like us. That’s true at every level. On an individual level, we’re helping bring comfort and friendship to veterans coping with PTSD or transitioning back to civilian life through our Stacks program. The support of individuals like you help make that single connection that can change a life.
An initiative to bring awareness to suicide prevention and promote positive mental health.
“Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion.” is the Stack Up mission that serves as the common thread which brings veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming.
At Stack Up, we recognize that PTSD, depression, and emotional distress affect millions of veterans and are a leading cause of isolation and suicide within our community. Our StOP Program (Stack Up Overwatch Program) is designed to watch over our community and provide critical support to veterans and active-duty military personnel through round-the-clock access to a team of trained and certified crisis management volunteers.
Our StOP Squad is trained and certified specifically to assist in crisis- intervention, suicide prevention, and issues concerning the mental health of those in current or previous military duty.
Through Discord, you have 24 hour a day access to passionate members of our StOP Squad who are ready to assist you with gaining mental health resources, support services, therapeutic resources, financial resources, and to be present if you simply need someone to talk to or game with.
The Stack Up StOP Squad understands that transitioning from active-duty to civilian life can bring on persistent mental health issues and hardships in the life of active-duty military personnel, veterans, and civilians connected to our community. All Squad members are HIPAA certified so you can be assured that all matters discussed are kept private and in strict confidence between you and the member you are communicating with.
