Kyiv’s Maidan Nezalezhnosti appears in Fortnite – an island for donations

Fortnite, one of the world’s most popular online games, has now added TheDonationMap, a separate island that accurately recreates Kyiv’s Independence Square.

The island’s code is 1992-2531-2170. You need to join the location and stay there as long as possible. The more players spend time on the map, the more money will be directed to the restoration of Ukraine through UNITED24 (in this case, to the reconstruction of the Prybuzka outpatient clinic in Mykolaiv region).

The idea was proposed by Paris-based Havas Play and implemented by Havas Dgtl Kyiv.

Fortnite is one of the most popular online games in the world with more than 500 million registered players as of 2024. Not only developers but also independent creators can generate new locations or maps here. Each such map is monetized when a player spends a lot of time on it, completing tasks or buying skins.

At the beginning of the full-scale war, $100 million in aid was raised for Ukraine through donations in Fortnite. On March 20, 2022, Epic Games and Xbox announced that all revenue from in-game purchases made in the game until April 3 would go to support Ukrainians affected by the war.

You can also donate to the rebuilding of Ukraine through Minesalt, an online Minecraft-style game set in Soledar locations. The project was co-created by UNITED24 and Endorah and is currently raising $1,150,000 to rebuild the Velykokostrom gymnasium, which was destroyed by a Russian missile. UNITED24 ambassadors include Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, Nobel Prize winner in Physiology or Medicine Paul Nurse, actor Misha Collins, boxer Oleksandr Usyk, astronaut Scott Kelly, footballer Oleksandr Zinchenko, and others.
