Call of Duty Endowment awards $30,000 to major military charities

Activision has announced the first two recipients of its Call of Duty Endowment: Seal of Distinction Awards.

RFEA: The Forces Employment Charity and Walking With the Wounded will both receive a $30,000 grant alongside the opportunity for additional funding, advice and support.

“We’re delighted to be one of the first recipients of The Call of Duty Endowment in the UK. RFEA supported 20,000 ex-forces personnel last year, providing tailored employment advice and helping them find work suited to the skills and experience of a military career,” said Stephen Gledhill, CEO of RFEA.

It’s great to see such a major gaming franchise proving beneficial to real-world charities in a big way, and hopefully this will be the first of many awards given out by Call of Duty: Endowment.

Players can also help raise money by purchasing the ‘Bravery Pack’ for Call of Duty: WW2 across PS4, Xbox One and PC.

This digital bundle includes a unique helmet, calling card and emblem showcasing the foundation’s logo. All proceeds received by Activision will go directly to funding Endowment programmes.

Call of Duty: WW2 is a great first-person shooter with plenty of cosmetic offerings and content on offer, so paying a little extra to help a worthy cause sounds good to us.
