One of the first things I learned when I joined the Lab was how incredible the survivor community was. I have hardly ever met a group of people more generous with their time and talents. I’ve learned a lot about survival preparation from you! One of the many tidbits I picked up was how to build an emergency stockpile of food – dry goods, bottled water, dehydrated packs, and canned goods. But it’s not something we do once and forget. Every year or two, it’s important to refresh the stash, to use the old food and replace it with new.
As we head into the holiday season, I know many of you already have plans to help others by refreshing the canned food stash…by donating the older stuff. Other players have mentioned participating in various canned food drives.
We’d like to thank you, and we’d like to see what our total community haul is! Whether you drop off your donation (collection bins at your job, school, or grocery store), or you leave it in a bag for the Boy or Girl Scouts to pick up during a Scouting For Food drive, or drive it to a food bank yourself, please snap a picture and tweet it to @UndeadLabs with the hashtag #SurviveTheSeason. Or post the pic in the forum thread attached to this post, either way.
Just to make things fun: If a hundred items are donated, ten random winners will get State of Decay decals. 200? Stickers, plus five random winners will score a Zombie Pinny. 500 things? The prize pool expands to include five SOD T-shirts.
Join the fun, and help others to survive!
