Fortnite Raises $36 Million to Support Ukraine

Along with the release of Fortnite’s recent season comes a great act of kindness executed by the game.

Those who have been following the world’s most popular and played game, ‘Fornite,’ will be familiar that the platform has opted to contribute all of its Fortnite revenues to Ukraine humanitarian relief.

The game creator has stated that all Fortnite earnings between March 20, 2022, and April 3, 2022, will be devoted to rescuing operations. All real-money transactions in the game will be covered by these earnings.

And the platform accomplished it. As well as updated its players on the game about how much they’d raised one day later. Check out the official notice of the donation below.

‘Fortnite’ Raises $36 Million For Ukraine Humanitarian Relief

One day later, the developer stated that its players had collectively raised $36 million USD towards humanitarian relief in Ukraine.

The money will be allocated to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Food Programme, Direct Relief, and the United Nations Children’s Fund.

Later on, the company announced that they are thrilled to reveal that @Xbox is supporting them in this initiative and is dedicating their net revenues for Fortnite during this period, in order to get more assistance to the people of Ukraine.

And now, a whopping $36 million has been transferred to the refugee-assistance agency.

The humanitarian relief organizations that the developers are supporting are on the field, offering immediate aid such as health care, food, clean water, necessary supplies, legal assistance, and shelter.

In the coming weeks, more organizations will be added to this list.

When Will The Funds Be Transferred To The Relief Organizations?

Epic Games responded to the most generally asked question from players: when will the funds be distributed to relief organizations? And they actually replied by saying, “As quickly as we can.”

The platform is not waiting for money to be received from its network and payment providers, which can take some time relying on how the transaction was conducted.

As transactions are recorded, the donations will be logged and sent to humanitarian aid groups within days.

What Transactions Go Towards Helping People Affected By The War?

All Fortnite real-money items purchased between March 20, 2022, and April 3, 2022, will be divided up. This contains V-Buck packs, Fortnite Crew, Battle Passes given as gifts, and cosmetic packs available for actual money, such as the Voidlander Pack.

Retail shop transactions of in-game cosmetics and V-Bucks cards will also be counted if redeemed in-game during this time period.

Along with that, Microsoft is donating the gross profits of all Fortnite product transactions on the Microsoft Store in all countries where Fortnite is distributed.

Using V-Bucks in Fortnite will not be mentioned because they are not purchased with real money.

Surprisingly, here’s another thing. Funds will be included from current or re-activated Fortnite Crew subscription renewals conducted between March 20, 2022, and April 3, 2022.

Any additional Fortnite Crew subscriptions purchased between March 20, 2022, and April 3, 2022, will also contribute to relief efforts.

What are your thoughts on the developer’s latest move? It’s wonderful to hear that they’ve truly raised this much money to support the people.
