Every day, but particularly today, we want to take the time to thank our veterans for all they have done and will continue to do. We’re honored to have partnered with incredible causes that allow us to help our brave service men and women.
Our Call of Duty experience benefited the Call of Duty Endowment, which helps get veterans back to work by funding high-impact organizations that prepare them for the job market. Every $1,000 raised for the Endowment helps a veteran get a good job, and CODE is proud to have helped over 12,000 veterans start new careers.
Our very first charity we partnered with is Team Rubicon. They unite the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams, which not only helps disaster-stricken areas, but it also supports our veteran community by giving them three things they lose after leaving the military: a purpose, gained through disaster relief; community, built by serving with others; and self-worth, from recognizing the impact one individual can make.
When working with Stephen Colbert, we teamed with The Yellow Ribbon Fund to support the injured military men, women and families while they recover at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital in Washington, DC. Even after the veterans return to their hometowns, the Yellow Ribbon Fund continues to help them out.
The first time we worked with Jon Stewart, we supported The Mission Continues, which empowers veterans to service their country in new ways. They focus veterans’ desires to serve others through volunteerism, and through service, they help solve tough challenges facing veterans and communities. Your contributions provided 20,000 hours of community service fellowships to military veterans.
We’re beyond honored to support these brave men and women who’ve done so much for us and our freedom, and we look forward to continuing these relationships in the future.
Thank you and happy Veterans Day!
