Activision Blizzard Donates $2 Million to Call of Duty Endowment

"Call of Duty" publisher gives a cool $2 million to their organization designed to raise awareness and help secure jobs for veterans (Activision, Blizzard, Culture, Industry)

"We are committed to our veterans," says Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, "they put their lives on the line for our freedom and security. They all have unique experiences, skills, and capabilities that should be highly desirable to any employer. Sadly, more than 20% of our youngest veterans remain out of work. The Call of Duty Endowment helps raise awareness of the considerable advantages employers gain from hiring veterans and, though a network of NGO's, finds jobs for veterans. We proudly support its efforts."

And $2 million is one hell of a tax writeoff too, isn't it Bobby-boy?

Seriously? If you want to donate, give it to someone who needs it. You could feed an unbelieveable amount of starving kids in 3rd world countries or even here with 2.000.000 $.
