Greetings CMDR's o7,
On December 14th of last year, The first 3 attacks on StarPorts in the Pleiades by the Thargoids occurred. This marked the 2nd Thargoid War and since then, The attacks have been relentless and the toll on humanity has been immense.
Operation IDA quickly was formed as a volunteer group who have worked tirelessly to repair the damaged stations.
In the past year, we have repaired 14 stations and continue to do so as best that we can.
It's a difficult and thankless job but we do it because it's the right thing to do. We have been lucky to have support from CMDR's who donate their time and efforts but our roster is not deep.
To commemorate the ONE year anniversary of the attacks we are organizing The HAPPY HOLIDAY HAUL™ to invite people from ALL PLATFORMS to join us in repairs as well as raise money for a very worthy charity.
The Happy Holiday Haul Campaign will begin on December 14th & finish on January 4th.
We not only invite all CMDR's to join us but also Streamers & YouTubers to support our efforts as well.
Also any Organizations that blog or report news for the Elite community.
Any coverage of our efforts by any of you would be greatly appreciated.
We'll be hosting Convoys on each of the three weekends as well as give out some prizes as it's all for a good cause.

This is a great cross platform community and we have always tried to quietly make a difference.
Please join us in solidarity in these trying times to help stabilize systems & starports as well as make a real life difference for real people.
