May is National Military Appreciation Month and to honor veterans the Call of Duty Endowment is using Activision Blizzard’s recent $2 Million donation to help veterans find high-quality jobs during this trying time.
The Endowment, founded in 2009, has always sought to place veterans in high-quality jobs since its inception and considers that task more important now, than ever. This year, the Endowment has also raised funds through the Defender Pack, its #HireHonor Campaign, the Call of Duty Endowment “C.O.D.E.” Bowl, and other activations.
Now, The Endowment is taking on a new campaign – the #CODEFearlessChallenge - to honor veterans during National Military Appreciation Month. To join in the challenge, honor a current service member or veteran by posting a photo of them on your social media to show your appreciation. Get more details on how you can take on the #CODEFearlessChallenge here.
“Activision Blizzard and Call of Duty continue to be incredibly dedicated partners in helping veterans find high quality jobs, which is harder than ever in these difficult times. Our grantees who place vets have seen a greater than 50% increase in request for help and this campaign aims to support that need.”
This month, as part of #CODEFearlessChallenge, the Endowment will release the ‘Fearless Pack’ for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® and Call of Duty®: Warzone. The pack was created with the help of a distinguished military veteran and will assist the Endowment in its initiative to get veterans back to work. 100% of Activision’s net proceeds from the ‘Fearless Pack’ will go to the Call of Duty Endowment.
If you are (or know someone who is) a veteran, transitioning service member, or service leaver requiring assistance in looking for employment in the U.S. or U.K., then visit the Veteran Support section of the Call of Duty Endowment website to be paired with a partner organization who can help in the job search.
