OSD has already managed to raise $450,000 in donations from across the gaming community and has provided support to approximately 1,500 soldiers worldwide.
"We are honored to participate in Operation Supply Drop to support our troops. Contributing to this cause to thank our troops for all they do is very important to us," said Jared Gerritzen, Studio Director at Zombie Studios. "We have worked with the military in our Serious Games group and Zombie was founded by two veterans of America's armed forces, so we are honored to take part in this cause."
