To donate to the CDC Foundation on Xbox, you need to be a Microsoft Rewards member (sign up on your Xbox or online at the Microsoft Rewards website). You get Microsoft Rewards by playing games, completing Game Pass quests, renting/buying movies, and by purchasing Xbox games.

With this new charity campaign, you can donate your Microsoft Rewards to the CDC Foundation. 1,000 Rewards works out to $1. Microsoft is matching all donations to help raise even more money.
