In the weeks leading up to Veteran’s Day gamers are doing their part to help 1,000 military vets find jobs by supporting the “Race to 1,000 Jobs” awareness campaign.
The Call of Duty Endowment’s goal is to connect vets with meaningful jobs across the country. To take part in the Endowment efforts reviewing the three options below to get involved today:
- Kicking off this campaign, five gamer personalities – Ernest Le, Goldglove, Goldenboy, iiJERiiCHOii, TmarTn – will launch their own fundraising effort as part of the 2014 Race to Prestige (#TheRace), powered by Twitch. During the launch week of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Sunday, November 2 through Friday, November 7), the gamers will stream themselves on Twitch playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at www.twitch.tv/therace while taking donations for the Call of Duty Endowment.
- Beginning Tuesday, November 4, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Limited Edition Dog Tags will go on sale at more than 11,000 participating retail locations across the United States. In addition to donating all profits from the sales of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Limited Edition Dog Tags, Activision Publishing will match all donations made to the Call of Duty Endowment dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 million, during the “Race to 1,000 Jobs.”
- Starting today, gamers can create their own fundraising pages to raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment by going to www.callofduty.com/vets.
Make sure to follow and support the #1000VETS hashtag throughout the weeks/days leading up the Veteran’s Day on your social accounts to help promote awareness for the campaign. Give back to those who protect us by supporting them back.
