As COVID-19 continues to grow beyond that disease that is ruining everything you enjoy to a legitimate threat that you should be concerned about, a number of companies have stepped up, a group that now included CD Projekt Red.
Earlier today, Joint CEO and co-founder of CD Projekt, Marcin Iwinski, shared on LinkedIn the company was able to raise a total of 4 million PLN to fight COVID-19.
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.Marcin Iwinski via LinkedIn
At the current exchange rate, 4 million PLN comes out to being about just under $950,000 or roughly €840,000. Needless to say, it’s a substantial donation and shows just how much CD Projekt wants to help.
