Epic Game's Fortnite has raised $36 million as part of its humanitarian relief for Ukraine. The game wrote in a tweet that the proceeds will go to UNICEF, World Food Programme, the UN Refugee Agency, and Direct Relief.
According to The Verge, Xbox is also participating in the initiative and will donate its net proceeds from the game during two weeks. As Epic Games earlier said, the campaign will last from March 20 through April 3 and will include all in-game purchases, subscriptions, and gifted battles passes.
The move is part of Fortnite's new season dubbed "Resistance," featuring Doctor Strange and other characters. Epic Games isn't the only gaming company that joined the global efforts to support Ukraine as other firms also made a similar action. For example, an indie developer-led initiative called itch.io also raised over $6 million for Ukraine.
Besides the gaming industry, the crypto space joined the call for help as well. To The Moon previously reported that holders of the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection united to join those who supported Ukraine amid the ongoing geopolitical disaster.
A community spokesperson wrote in a tweet that the holders of cartoon apes donated over $1 million in ether (ETH) to Ukraine's official ETH address.
