Activision to donate 1 million in sales revenue to War heroes
Activision, in a touching gesture has promised to donate a million dollars to support army veterans and former soldiers.
These funds will help them lead their civilian lives better and find employment.
The funds will be donated from the profits that the latest CoD games make and will go to Call of Duty Endowment corporation that assists other organisation help soldiers find employment outside the military.
Here’s what Bobby Kotick had to say
This Veteran’s Day, we should all take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices that the brave men and women of our military are making in service of our country. It is a national tragedy to have these men and women put their lives on the line inAfghanistan and Iraq, only to come home to face another battle of finding a new career. The Call of Duty Endowment and the organizations it supports are devoted to reducing the rate of unemployment among our recent veterans by helping them find jobs and use the skills they developed protecting our freedom to earn a living. I am honored that we are able to use the popularity of Call of Duty to bring much needed attention to this serious issue and assist veterans when they return home.
Call of Duty: Black Ops just beat Modern Warfare 2 to become the biggest entertainment launch in history. This is a nice gesture.
