Time To Donate To The Call of Duty Endowment
The end of 2010 is nearing and it’s this time of the year when people are more generous than usual. People tend to either spend more money buying stuff for themselves or their families, or they tend to help people who are less fortunate. And that is what I’m going to do, help people who need it. Unfortunately I can’t help them directly, but I can donate to organizations who can.
The organization I picked to donate to is the Call of Duty Endowment. For those not familiar with the Call of Duty Endowment, this is what they are about and what their mission is:
The Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit public benefit corporation which helps soldiers transition to civilian careers after their military service. The Call of Duty Endowment 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.
Our mission is to create a national campaign that will assist those organizations that provide our former service members with job placement, training and educational services in their post military careers. We will strive to show America how the private sector can mobilize and reward our proud veterans with employment. Our goal is to raise millions of dollars through an initial donation by Activision Blizzard, which will be supplemented by additional donations from the corporate world and the generosity of everyday civilians.
The Call of Duty Endowment had it’s Service Ops campaign in which I won a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops (which I then gave to a lucky fan). The Call of Duty Endowment has been constantly giving and helping and now it’s time for me and the Call of Duty Community to give back. It’s only been about 3 months since I started the Call of Duty Community and lets admit it, I’m not earning enough money to quit my job (nowhere near it). But whatever I’m earning, 10% of it will be donated to the Call of Duty Endowment. I will donate every month for as long as the Call of Duty Community website is alive and kicking.
I hope you will follow my example and donate to the Call of Duty Endowment (or any other organization /corporation for that matter). All you have to do is CLICK HERE and hit the donate button. Every dollar you can spare will be helpful.
