Donates to Ukraine relief.
Ukraine, Russia, war crimes, at this point unless you’re a brainwashed nationalist zealot we all know what’s going on and have heard the story a thousand times over. Epic Games this week made good on their promise of donating the first two weeks of Fortnite’s revenues to Ukraine relief, announcing this morning that the game has raised a total of $144 million for various charities assisting the Ukraine people.
This is a culmination of 100% of Fortnite’s proceeds over the last few weeks including Microsoft’s cut of the revenue split. As of yet, both Sony and Nintendo have refused to take part in the charity.
Our deepest thanks to everyone who joined us in supporting humanitarian relief efforts for people affected by the war in Ukraine.
Together with the Fortnite community and @Xbox, we raised $144 million USD for @DirectRelief @UNICEF, @WFP, @Refugees and @WCKitchen. pic.twitter.com/lPAa8lmfJn
