Don’t have the time or resources to honor our vets as much as you’d like this Memorial Day? You’re not alone. We understand that not everyone has the time or dollars to give back to our vets this weekend, despite their appreciation for America’s service members. So that’s why we’re going to do it for you – and all you have to do is say you “Like” us.
That’s right – CODE is in the midst of a five day Memorial Day campaign to increase its grant funding forHire Heroes USA (HHUSA) and to build awareness about the issue of veterans’ unemployment. HHUSA is an organization which focuses on providing career transition assistance to recently returning veterans. For every new fan that helps CODE support veterans and says they “Like” the Call of Duty Endowment Facebook page, between Thursday, May 27th and Monday, May 31st, CODE will increase their donation to HHUSA by $1. The campaign will last until 11:59PM PST on Memorial Day, or until a grant of $50,000 has been reached, whichever benchmark expires first.
Brian Stann, Executive Director of Hire Heroes USA and UFC fighter welcomed the campaign and funding for his organization, “People need to wake up and recognize what’s happening to our vets when they leave the service. We’re thrilled that CODE chose us to help them engage more folks on this issue, and gave us the opportunity to help more vets.”
So make this Memorial Day count! Tell us you “Like” the CODE Facebook Page now! Tell your ‘Friends’ to “Like” us and CODE will help HHUSA get the resources they need to assist our vets with finding new careers.
