Bungie will be selling a limited-edition t-shirt “to support both Australia’s firefighting efforts and the country’s animal rescue and conservation efforts”. The shirt will be emblazoned with the “Star Light, Star Bright” emblem redemption code. Pre-orders on the Bungie store will start on January 16th and will end on February 18th. All proceeds from the sale of the t-shirt will be donated to two organizations in Australia: WIRES, a wildlife rescue group, and NSW Rural Fire Service in New South Wales.
Ubisoft will be selling in-game items to support efforts in Australia. The creation of the items and adding them to Ubi’s games will take time. In the short term, however, the company has donated $30,000 to the Australian Red Cross Disaster and Recovery Effort Fund. Further proceeds from the sales of in-game items will come at a later date.
The bushfire crisis has devastated communities across the nation and the scenes of loss are heartbreaking.
We’ve heard the calls requesting we create in-game items to encourage donations, however this takes considerable development time and we feel immediate action is required. pic.twitter.com/7JPg0QPOqQ
