Pokemon Company International Makes Donation to Charity for Ukraine

The Pokemon Company International announced it is making a charitable donation to help people in the Ukraine. It offered an official statement pledging $200,000. That money ended up donated via GlobalGiving. However, it didn’t specify which project will be given the money.

Here is The Pokemon Company International’s full statement regarding its donation on behalf of the Ukraine and Eastern Europe.

The growing crisis in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, which continues to cause the displacement of families and threaten the safety of children, is heartbreaking.

The Pokemon Company International is making an immediate donation of $200,000 USD to our partners at GlobalGiving to provide humanitarian relief. The nonprofit will efficiently direct the funds to community-led organizations supporting families and children affected by the crisis.

At the moment, one of the featured projects on GlobalGiving is the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. Its goal is to raise $7 million to support people affected. As of March 3, 2022, over $4 million had been raised.

Like The Pokemon Company International, other developers and publishers have also announced efforts to support people in Ukraine via donating to charity. 11 bit Studios is donating profits from This War of Mine. CD Projekt Red made a donation to Polska Akcja Humanitarna. Necrosoft Games is also organizing an itch.io charity bundle.
