Activision is continuing to help military veterans through its Call of Duty Endowment
(C.O.D.E.), and, in a way, so are the patrons of its mega-popular war franchise. Today, C.O.D.E. announced
that it will be giving $100,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project
, for the purpose of establishing a fifth Transition Training Academy
where injured veterans can receive training and pursue a career in information technology.
Last November, the publisher pledged $1 million from sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
towards programs aiding military personnel in their return to civilian life, having made an initial donation of $125,000
to Paralyzed Veterans of America
in the fall.
