Activision Blizzard to sell Call of Duty dog tags for charity

By Mike Irving, Wednesday, 6 November 2013 01:11 GMT

Activision Blizzard will sell new, limited edition dog tags alongside the release of Call of Duty: Ghosts, with proceeds going to the Call of Duty Endowment, a not-for-profit organisation which supports veterans.

Activision announced the dog tags today, after last year’s fundraiser proved successful.

Retailing at $4.99, the dog tags are available in stores including GameStop, Costco, Walmart, Toys R Us, Best Buy and Target, throughout the holiday season. Activision will donate all profits from the sales to the Call of Duty Endowment, which supports veterans looking to transition into the civilian workforce.

“With our nation’s youngest veterans continuing to face unemployment at a much greater rate than their non-veteran counterparts, the work of the Call of Duty Endowment is more important than ever,” said Dan Goldenberg, the foundation’s Executive Director.

The latest game in the franchise, Call of Duty: Ghosts, is available now.
