Activison’s Call OF Duty Endowment Helps Veterans To Find Better Jobs
Activision has announced that the publisher is expanding its in-game program to support the veterans and help them find high-quality job opportunities. The program is called Call OF Duty Endowment.
Black Ops 3 players will be able to buy three animated calling cards in-game, to support the Call Of Duty Endowment.
These valor calling cards depict epic scenes from military action; Sea, Air and Land. The purpose of these cards is to honor those who served in the armed forces.
Treyarch designed these C.O.D.E valor calling card set, which will be sold for $4 and all of the money will go to the Endowment. This will make sure that veterans secure a quality career after their military service ends.
This Endowment is a non-profit public benefit trust founded in 2009 by Activision CEO Bobby Kotick. The purpose for this trust is to find and fund best and effective employment focused veteran serving organizations.
According to Executive Director of Call Of Duty Endowment Dan Goldenberg:
To date, the Call of Duty community has contributed over $1 million to our efforts to help veterans through the in-game program. With this funding, our grantees will place over 1,800 veterans into high quality jobs. Through this campaign alone, the Call of Duty community has essentially put an entire brigade back to work, which is tremendous.
Goldenberg thanked SONY and Microsoft for their partnership in this mission. He further said that without SONY and Microsoft this in-game program would not have been possible.
Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia Added:
Treyarch strongly supports the Call of Duty Endowment’s mission. The Calling Card program allows the Call of Duty: Black Ops III community the opportunity to easily contribute and make a meaningful impact to this worthy cause.
It is certainly good to see that big companies like Activision are taking a step to ensure better future for those, who make sure that their country has a future.
