Bungie Launches Guardians For Australia Campaign To Aid Bush Fire Relief
For months, Australia’s land has been ravaged by bush fires affecting humans and animals alike. Both species losing their homes and lives to the indiscriminate blaze. Despite the struggles of those surviving and aiding service men and women in helping survivors, there’s hope and help from all around the world. To assemble additional aid, Bungie signals the help of Guardians.
Launching their Guardians for Australia campaign, Bungie announces the sales of a specially designed t-shirt to raise funds for Australian wildfire relief and animal conservation. All proceeds will go to New South Wales Rural Fire Service and WIRES (Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service). For $24.99, Guardians will receive the limited t-shirt and an in-game emblem called Star Light, Star Bright.
Bungie and their senior foundation manager, Christine Edwards, believe Guardians will shine once more as the community has in the past. “Over the past two decades, the Bungie community has been an amazing force for good in our world by raising millions of dollars to assist those in distress,” Edwards said in an announcement. “In addition to supporting thousands of children through our iPads for Kids Program, you have helped victims of hurricanes Katrina and Harvey and have donated to those affected by earthquakes in Haiti, Japan, and Nepal. Time and time again, you have been Guardians to others in their greatest time of need.”
