The Call of Duty Endowment (CODE), a non-profit public benefit corporation, which helps soldiers transition to civilian careers after their military service. CODE focuses its resources on assisting organizations that provide job placement and training to veterans, as well as engaging the media and public forums to raise awareness about the issue. Activision Blizzard launched the organization in October 2009, with a commitment to donate and raise millions of dollars for the cause. To help guide the endowment, CEO Bobby Kotick has recruited an advisory board composed of respected veterans representing the various service branches. Just as our men and women in the armed forces fought to protect our nation and liberties, CODE will fight to ensure that they find a career they deserve on leaving the military.
Memorial Day is upon us gamers. It’s a time that should be spent honoring those who served and continue to serve our country. If you are looking for an easy way you can honor the Vets check out the CODE facebook page. Click on the “Like” button and Activision will increase their donation to HHUSA (Hire Heros USA) by $1.
So put down the controller for two seconds this long weekend and join in the effort.
