The whole world is fighting the coronavirus pandemic, and the gaming community and companies are finding ways to help and support this fight. Among them is Xbox which lets its players donate their rewards points to 3 COVID-19 related charities.
A few weeks ago, Xbox gave its Xbox One players the option to donate their points to the CDC Foundation, and it is said that hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated. Because of this, the company has decided to add 2 more charities to the list: the United Nations Foundation and GlobalGiving.
“Which is why we’re pleased to announce that launching today in the U.S., Xbox One owners can now use their Microsoft Rewards points to donate to two new global foundations – the United Nations Foundation and GlobalGiving – in support of COVID-19 relief efforts,” says the post on the official website.
To do this, you need to be a Microsoft Rewards member. Then, you can earn points by playing games on your Xbox. When you’ve earned enough Rewards points, you can donate them to the organization of your choice. $1 is donated for every 1,000 Rewards points.
