Become a Fan “Call of Duty Endowment” on Facebook – earn money for Hire Heroes USA!
Today, the Call of Duty Endowment (CODE) announced it is launching a five-day Memorial Day campaign to increase its grant funding for Hire Heroes USA (HHUSA) and to build awareness about the issue of veterans’ unemployment. HHUSA is an organization that 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.
The grant awarded from CODE will go towards employment training programs that help military veterans successfully compete for 21st Century careers. HHUSA partners industry professionals with transitioning veterans during employment transition workshops, provides veterans with intensive career development programs, and gives returning service members the necessary tools needed to sustain a successful outcome when entering the 21st Century workforce.
CODE is a non-profit corporation that seeks to help veterans transitioning to civilian life find work and establish careers, and to assist other organizations that provide job placement and training.
We urge you to promote this event on your blog, Facebook page, or any other medium you see fit. Ask your readers and friends to become fans of CODE on Facebook. This is an easy way to make a difference and help a great organization. Thank you for your support.
