VeritaAmore’s Connection to the Cause
As someone who has not served in any of the branches of the armed forces, but having several friends and family members that either are currently serving or have served, I feel an immense sense of pride having that connection, friendship or family, knowing the work they did or are still doing is important.
I had previously heard of StackUP only in passing, thinking “Wow what a great organization, their work is really important.” However the connection solidified for me when I watched my friend Sage stream and raise money for StackUP, and listening to his story and seeing the community come together made me more motivated and passionate about this cause. We as gamers have a connection to video games that does so many different things on so many different levels. Our brothers and sisters serving in the branches of the armed forces need this connection as well, which is why the work StackUP does is so important. Video games give us the ability to break away from the day to day, hit the reset button, and connect to something stress relieving, challenging, and fun.
We as streamers have an incredible platform with which to share our voices in advocacy of what matters to us and our community. For me, mental health is very important, and especially important to those serving abroad. I am honored to be participating in this event, and to be part of a gaming community like GamerLoop network, making those connections stronger, and bringing everyone together.
