While Activision announced that they sold a mind-boggling 6.5 million copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in 24 hours, the company also mentioned that they donated a generous $3 million to the Call of Duty Endowment. The CoD Endowment is a non-profit public benefit corporation founded by Bobby Kotick that seeks to provide job placement and training for veterans.
So far the Endowment has provided more than $1.5 million in grants and scholarships to veterans' organizations across the country since 2009. You can say whatever you want about Activision, but helping out veterans is always a noble thing to do.
On that note, Happy Veteran's Day!
