Australia is burning, literally. Many people have lost their homes and livelihoods, while some has lost their lives. We have seen horrifying footage and images of animals being burnt, or trying to flee the devastating fires which can only be described as a disaster. But luckily the people of Australia are not alone, with many organisations, people, celebrities and even an Instagram model selling nudes coming together to assist the people and wildlife in need.
Bungie is one video gaming developer that has always been looking to help out where they can, and they are doing their part again. During their weekly blog, the developer announced that you will be able to buy a limited edition T-shirt with an emblem and all proceeds will go towards relief for those affected by the disaster:
The bush fires currently ravaging Australia have been devastating. Many people have lost their homes, firefighters are risking their lives daily, and an estimated hundreds of millions of wild animals have fallen victim to the fires.
We are developing a limited-edition T-shirt fundraising campaign to support both Australia’s firefighting efforts and the country’s animal rescue and conservation efforts. The T-shirt, which comes with an exclusive Destiny 2 “Star Light, Star Bright” emblem redemption code with purchase, will be available for pre-order on the Bungie Store and Bungie Store EU between Thursday, January 16 and Tuesday, February 18 at 9 a.m. Pacific, ending with the weekly reset and the end of Crimson Days. The team is currently hard at work on the T-shirt design and we’ll share a preview early next week.
The first half of all profits generated by these T-shirt sales will be donated to WIRES, Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization. The other half will be donated to NSW Rural Fire Service, which services the state of New South Wales, where the fires have been especially devastating and are in dire need of containment.
