The Fortnite Ukraine fund raises $144 million in just over two weeks

blank

After a little over two weeks of fundraising $144 million was raised for humanitarian aid in Ukraine by Epic Games. This huge amount of money, all going to those who need it most right now, was collected entirely through Fortnite via in-game purchases.

This fundraiser came at an interesting time for the battle royale, as it ran parallel to the launch of Chapter 3 Season 2, which saw buildings temporarily removed from the game in all game modes, and a special parkour system and a variety of new weapons added were and vehicles.

So, not only has your Fortnite regulars’ proceeds been added to the stack, but also purchases from those who only drop by when major updates start, as well as those who have fallen out of love with the game due to building. The bottom line is a number that’s hard to fathom – the split between charities Direct Relief, UNICEF WFP, the UN Refugee Agency and WCKitchen.

The naysayers out there might say that the whole situation is a public relations stunt that Epic Games and Fortnite can afford dearly, but when it comes down to it, it’s a lot of money that does a lot of good to the people who need it will do it. In my opinion, $144 million is more than a fair price for a few points on players’ books.
