Bungie has announced it has set up a fundraising campaign on its merchandise store to raise money for two organisations in Australia in light of the recent fires that have devastated much of the country. The Guardians for Australia campaign sees Bungie releasing a campaign t-shirt that is available to pre-order between now and February 18th. Along with the t-shirt those who order it will get a Star Light, Star Bright emblem to use in Destiny 2.
All profits from the sales of the t-shirt will be split equally between the New South Wales Rural Fire Service and the wildlife rescue organisation WIRES. The fires have seen communities destroyed, lives lost, and over a billion animals killed since they began. While bushfires in Australia are not new the most recent ones have followed a temperature record-breaking summer in Australia with climate change being the main driver of the ferocity of the fires.
If you want to order the t-shirt head here for the EU store and here for the US store. Bungie joins the likes of Ubisoft and Activision who have also been finding ways to donate to organisations in Australia to deal with the fires.
