Update: Bungie has revealed the design of the T-shirt for its Guardians for Australia fundraiser which will donate the proceeds from sales to the Australian relief effort Wildfire. The T-shirt is now available for pre-order from the Bungie’s store and will also come with a code for an in-game emblem.
Bungie also expressed thanks to local Destiny players in Australia who have already raised more than $ 14,000 for the Australian Red Cross in another appeal for donations.
Destiny 2 developer Bungie has announced that it is developing a limited edition t-shirt to raise money for Australia’s firefighting efforts and the country’s animal rescue and conservation efforts.
The T-shirt comes with an exclusive “Star Light, Star Bright” emblem code with your purchase and will be available for pre-order at Bungie and Bungie EU stores from January 16 through February 18 at 9am PST.
Edwards highlighted other efforts by the community over the past two decades, such as supporting thousands of children through Bungie’s iPads for Kids program, helping victims of Hurricane Katrina and Harvey, and donations to people affected by earthquakes in Haiti. , Japan and Nepal, saying “time and time again you have been the keepers of others in their greatest need.”
Half of the proceeds generated from t-shirt sales will go to WIRES, Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization. The other half will go to the NSW Rural Fire Service in the State of New South Wales, which has been particularly affected by the fires.
The t-shirt design is currently still in development, but Bungie says it plans to reveal a preview of the shirt next week. The Australian fires have had a huge impact on the country, destroying thousands of homes and devastating natural habits and national parks. It’s great to see Bungie creating something to support the nationwide fire relief effort and provide Destiny 2 players with an “avenue to lend a hand”.
