There’s an overwhelming amount of doom and gloom around at the moment concerning COVID-19. The global pandemic is distributing people’s lives the world over, that’s why it’s so important to focus on whatever positives we can.
Polish developer CD Projekt Red, responsible for The Witcher series as well as massively anticipated Cyberpunk 2077, are throwing their hat in the ring to help combat the virus.
Between the company’s board of directors, shareholders and the company as a whole, CDPR, in conjunction with the non-profit organisation Fundacja Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy, has donated a total of US$970,000 (around AU$1.5 million) to help purchase medical equipment and fund healthcare workers within their home country of Poland.
This was announced by CDPR’s co-founder Marcin Iwinski on LinkedIn:
Collaborating with Fundacja Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy, an established Polish NGO with over 20 years of medical equipment fundraising history, today we donated a sum of 4 million PLN to combat the spread of COVID-19 in Poland. The company’s Board of Directors and major shareholders donated 2 million PLN, with another 2 million PLN donated by the company itself.
We’d like to thank all the brave souls who fight for our well-being every day and hope these funds help in your effort to rid us of the virus.
It’s great to see this donation as the world is in desperate need of unity at this point in time.
