In just two weeks, the developers of Epic raised $144 million through their popular game Fortnite to help Ukraine. On the eve of last season, the company said it would donate all its proceeds from the game for two weeks with Microsoft to a humanitarian effort following Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
Our deepest thanks to everyone who joined us in supporting humanitarian relief efforts for people affected by the war in Ukraine.
