Back in March, we told you about a partnership between World of Warships developer Wargaming and Stack Up, a nonprofit dedicated to providing mental health support and crisis prevention programs to veterans and active-duty service members via gaming. Titled Operation Lifeboat, the partnership sought to raise $100,000 over a period of nine weeks by selling special in-game bundles to World of Warships players.

As it turns out, the program has already exceeded its goal, hitting $114,760 in five weeks. During this time, over 5,000 players have helped fund Operation Lifeboat by purchasing one of the $12 or $30 special bundles. So far 5,385 bundles have been bought. As mentioned in the announcement last month, 100% of proceeds from these purchases will be used to fund Stack Up’s Overwatch Program — or StOP. This program provides support to veterans and active military personnel via trained and certified volunteers using Discord. The services are available 24/7, 365 days a year. Information on how to access them are available at the site linked above.

If you’d like to help support the Overwatch Program and haven’t been able to yet, don’t worry. The bundles are still available on the Wargaming site.
