Stack-up.org invited Proven Gamer & Nintendo Duel Screens to the flagship Nintendo Store in NYC today for a charity event dedicated to raising awareness for their organization. Mario himself joined a group of gamers on a mission to help others as they played Arms and even got a sneak peak at a new mode in Splatoon 2, releasing later this week.
The event was chock full of ecstatic people, but not for the reason you would think. They weren’t there to just play the newest from Nintendo, but, rather, they were thrilled to tell you about what Stack-Up is all about.
A seven year old making a memory she’ll never forget
Stack-Up is a charity organization dedicated to providing gaming to veterans and soldiers in deployment. They do this in three ways:

- Supply Crates – They ship boxes of the latest games and consoles to troops in combat zones or recovering troops in military hospitals.
- Air Assaults – They fly deserving veterans to video gaming events (Pax, E3, ComicCon etc) for a VIP adventure of a lifetime.
