Stream For Soldiers
Organized by: SLM Gaming
Here at Streaming For Soldiers we are a non-profit charity based group of gamers dedicated to assisting homeless troops in returning to a normal way of life. Coming from various walks of life – including former U.S. Military Members, our streamers feel that there is a general underwhelming response of the nation as a whole in reintegrating troops into civilian life – in other words, we are tired of seeing veterans get treated like absolute shit. With such complications as wartime disabilities and PTSD, we feel that there is an unfair stigma attached to our combat veterans. We aim to raise money to give veterans a second lease on life, by affording them new suits, haircuts, resume building and job skills necessary to maintaining a standard of life in a competitive job market. We also aim to work with both local businesses and rehabilitation centers to assist our veterans in returning to the job market successfully. Lastly, we understand the value of experience that cannot be taught in a classroom. We are looking to leverage this experience to return a higher standard of living to our troops. How you can help: Use the website or come to any of the streams and donate, donate lightly used clothing (we need suits!), or message out page administrators with information regarding vet-friendly businesses that are looking to help return veterans to the competitive job market. We understand on-the-job training and are looking for businesses that are interested in returning vets to the job market.
