What is Call To Arms?
Call To Arms is our year-long charity drive that supports our mission of using the awesome power of gaming to support “US, UK, Canada, NATO, Australian and New Zealand” veterans around the world!
You can sign up to stream for the troops year round and make your own Call To Arms event!
How does Call To Arms make a difference?
CALL TO ARMS powers the following Stack-Up missions:
- Giant boxes of the latest in games and gear sent to combat zones, humanitarian missions, or troops recovering in military hospitals to raise morale, build camaraderie, combat PTSD, and fight the rising tide of veteran suicide!
- Flying deserving veterans to gaming and geek culture events such as Penny Arcade Expo, Comic Con, or E3
- Our local volunteer teams, coming together to support military personnel on bases and around their community
How do I get involved?
You can sign up for your own Call To Arms fundraising stream right here on our fundraising platform, Tiltify. This will make it so that we are all able to track your donations on our leader-boards for rewards and more!
This guide includes step by step instructions for getting signed up. If you have any questions about the process.

How do I stream for charity?
There is no wrong answer to this question and many people have had success using a variety of ideas.
We have put together a small guide of advice along with some tips and tricks to make your Call To Arms stream as successful as it can be!
Just remember to keep it fun and energetic, while reminding your audience of the why of the charity stream.
How do I talk about Stack-Up
A good starting place is to familiarize yourself with our three main programs listed above. We have a wealth of information on our website, featuring stories of our various programs that can all be used during your stream.
However, being that streaming is a visual medium we also have put together some amazing promo videos showcasing our main programs.
All of these videos can be played during your stream and provide amazing examples of how Stack-Up supports veterans with gaming.
We also have some basic art assets that can be used to theme your overlays and stream presentation for the day.
I need help. Who should I talk to?
The best place to reach out for assistance will be our Stack-Up Call To Arms Discord server.
Here you can find the Stack-Up staff as well as an army of Red Shirt volunteers that will be more than glad to answer your questions and provide any kind of assistance we can.
When you volunteer for Stack-Up you are one of us, and as such we will not let you go it alone.
Thank you for rising up to the challenge and answering the Call To Arms! We can not complete our mission of supporting both active duty troops and veterans without the support of amazing people like yourselves.
If you’d like to get involved with Stack-Up outside of streaming or make a donation that gets sent over to our troops, We take lightly used PS4, and Xbox One games and gear as well as cash donations. Please help us help these vets and visit the link below for more information!
