You know things are bad when video games have to be used to help get people jobs and stave off the unemployment that plagues current day society. That’s exactly what’s happening with the new program by Activision Blizzard. The company announced that the new Call of Duty Endowment program is underway to help veterans find jobs and get back on their feet.

According to the press release…
Activision Blizzard created the organization with a commitment to donate and raise millions of dollars to help raise awareness of veterans’ unemployment. Recognizing that Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is expected to be one of the biggest entertainment properties of the year, and that the Call Of Duty game is extremely popular among troops, Activision chose to give back to veterans by using the proceeds from Modern Warfare 2 to fund the Call of Duty Endowment and raise awareness for this important issue.

With more than 500,000 veterans currently unemployed between the age of 18 and 64, the CoD Endowment program will help get the brave men and women, who served their country, back on their feet and financially stable.

What’s sad about this entire scenario is that Activision has to step in where the United States Government seems to fail, especially when it comes to protecting and providing adequate civil service(s) to the veterans of the US Armed Forces.

If you fit into the category of being an unemployed veteran looking for aid where it's supposed to be provided but isn't, you might want to check into this service. You can learn more about the Call of Duty Endowment program by visiting the Official Activision Blizzard Website. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is currently available for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
