We have seen a lot of gaming companies contributing to the Coronavirus relief funds. Last week, Riot reportedly donated around One Million to their local Coronavirus Relief fund. Others like Razer, who are primarily involved in Gaming Equipment also decided to make thousands of N95 masks, that will be donated all over the world. Bungie along with Sony were very generous and allowed their staff to work from home.
Similarly today Bethesda has announced that they will donate $1,000,000 to COVID-19 Relief efforts. The game company which was heavily involved in gathering funds for Australian Fire Relief has also shown their class during the pandemic. The $1 million is divided into numerous organizations that will further contribute to COVID-19 relief.
- $500,000 will be given to Direct Relief, a charity which is directly involved in COVID-19 relief efforts, including the critically important work of providing personal protective equipment to health care workers.
- $250,000 will go to UNICEF, which partners with front-line responders around the world to keep children and their families safe and protected.
- $250,000 will be donated to local COVID-19 relief efforts within the communities where we work and live. These recipients will be chosen by our individual studios and international offices. This way we can support worthy charities fighting COVID-19 in our local communities across the world.
Bethesda has also started #BethesdaAtHome Campaign, where they will stream from home officers. “We’ll be streaming from our home offices – and we’ll offer you the opportunity to help out the same charities we’re supporting. Check out Bethesda.net or our social channels for updated stream schedules, or tune in to Twitch.tv/bethesda.”
