Call of Duty Endowment donating $1 to veterans for every Facebook 'Like' it gets


To coincide with Monday's observance of Memorial Day in the US, the Call of Duty Endowment -- a non-profit charity established by Activision Blizzard to assist veterans with finding employment once they leave the service -- is partnering with Hire Heroes USA to provide the "career transition" operation with funding through a novel approach. The Endowment will give $1 to HHUSA for every user who "likes" C.O.D.E.'s Facebook page through 11:59 p.m. PDT on Monday, May 31, or up to $50,000, whichever comes first.

This funding is on top of the undisclosed amount C.O.D.E. has already granted Hire Heroes USA. So far, more than 8,400 users have "liked" the page since the unique fundraiser began yesterday. If you've got a Facebook account, what's not to "Like" about this idea? Plus, it'll totally reestablish your cred after "liking" that one Justin Bieber page.
