Bungie will sell Destiny 2 shirts to help fight Australia's fires


The fireteam needs your help

Australia is in dire need of help right now as it's ravaged by bushfires that threaten both the human and animal population. Since September, an estimated 10.3 million hectares have burned, resulting in the deaths of 27 people and the estimated deaths of approximately half a billion wild animals. There's no sign of the fires slowing down, as this weekend's primary threat in the southeastern portion of Australia is a "mega blaze" where two fires merged into one.

Bungie is doing its part by selling a new Destiny 2 t-shirt and sending the proceeds to Australia fire relief. Bungie says "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."

The shirts aren't yet for sale. For that matter, they aren't even finished yet. Bungie plans to share the design early next week. It'll be available to buy between January 16 and February 18. For anyone who needs some extra incentive, the Australia relief shirt will come with an exclusive in-game "Star Light, Star Bright" emblem, which can be seen below.
