Every day is "Hire-A-Veteran Day" for us, but for everyone else, it falls on July 25th every year. Companies realize the value veterans bring to the workforce with their dedication and loyalty, work ethic, problem-solving, and leadership.
We want to continue to thank our veterans with a free copy of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4, and thank one of our top veteran employment supporters at the same time.
As a non-profit one of our funding partners is the Call of Duty Endowment which is organized by Activision Blizzard. For those of you who do not know, they are one of the largest gaming producers and the most successful standalone interactive entertainment company in the world. I am sure that you are familiar with some of their top-tiered games… you know like Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and even Candy Crush. Every year Activision Blizzard hosts an in-store donation program at their GameStop stores nationally. Yes, they own GameStop! This donation program helps them raise funding to continue their support of CASY as well as other veteran programs.
“Every cent of those funds (and all other funds that we raise) go directly to supporting veteran service organizations who are vetted and proven to assist the community.”
The Mission: GameStop4Vets
We need your help! GameStop has asked vets who have received support and assistance through CASY to participate in the “Thank You GameStop” campaign throughout the month of July. The premise is simple - all we need you to do is to capture a photo inside a local GameStop store with a store associate, saying ‘thank you’ for helping get veterans back to work Just snap a cell phone photo of yourself “in the act of thanks” and post it to either your Facebook or Twitter account. Don’t forget to include “#GameStop4Vets” in the text.
GameStop has provided a "Letter of Authorization" that will inform GameStop employees that this is an official GameStop program. Here is the awesome part - for participating, Activision Blizzard will provide each veteran with a FREE copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4!!! This is the latest game that is coming out in October and you could have a free copy hot off the presses!
Last year an incredible $899K+ was raised via GameStop’s strong efforts in asking customers to donate. This year they have the potential to raise $1M+ for these organizations, so motivating these employees to do this work is critical. Not only is this a great way to help GameStop store associates feel a deeper connection to the veteran employment cause and community, but it also highlights both the Call of Duty Endowment and the veteran service organizations that help our communities.
Our team has truly enjoyed working with you and is looking forward to continuing to work with veterans and their families on a daily basis. Remember that we provide long term career progression services, so if you are in the market for a new job or need new training for an upcoming promotion, then hit up our team and we are happy to continue our work with you
