The Pokemon Company Will Give $ 200,000 To Help Families In Ukraine

In the past few days, several software developers and publishers have donated humanitarian causes across the globe to help families displace Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. Most of these are The Pokemon Company. It recently pledged an “immediate donation” of $ 200 to GlobalGiving, a non-profit organization that collects charitable donations for grassroots charities.

In a statement posted on the company’s official Twitter account, The Pokemon Company explained that GlobalGiving will be funded by communities, which help families and children affected by the crisis. The fact that it’s a direct donation opens the possibility of more donations from The Pokemon Company in the future if the situation escalates to Ukraine.
