Bungie Wants Gamers to be Haiti’s "Halo"

Published January 27, 2010

Who says video games aren’t helping to make the world a better place? The folks at Bungie are rallying the millions of Halo fanatics for a good cause – raising money for relief efforts in Haiti. The wily game development company has pledged to donate up to $77,000 to the American Red Cross. Want to help out? Just grab a controller and play Halo 3 or Halo 3: ODST.

The more people who play either game on Xbox Live, the more money will be donated to help out the citizens of the devastated nation. And with the recent news of the country suffering a 6.0 aftershock, causing more destruction, everyone needs to do their part to support the Haitian citizens in their time of need. Bungie’s blog, Bungie.net is instructing interested gamers to go online and don a special heart emblem so they can be counted.


Aside from mobilizing gamers to do their part, Bungie is also raising money to the Red Cross through sales of a special edition t-shirt. All proceeds from sale of the shirt will go directly to the Red Cross as will all February sales generated from the Bungie Store.
