With the world going through one of its most testing times in recent memory, we’ve seen a rather touching display of support and selflessness from people and organisations. Bethesda has had a rough go of it lately in the public eye, but that doesn’t mean that they still can’t do good deeds to help those who sorely need it the most. In an effort to get involved in the COVID-19 relief efforts, Bethesda has decided to donate a full $1 million to various charities.
$500,000 will go to Direct Relief, an organisation focusing on personal protective equipment for health care workers, $250,000 will go to UNICEF who are dedicated to keeping children and families safe and a further $250,000 will be donated to communities and organisations chosen by Bethesda’s individual studios.
Furthermore, as part of their Bethesda at Home campaign, employees will stream games on Twitch from their offices where viewers can donate to these charities as well. It’s a lovely showing of kindness from Bethesda and hopefully other big publishers will follow in their footsteps with donations of their own. We’re in unprecedented times and any support counts as we navigate towards a semblance of normalcy.
