Bungie Enlists Heroes for Haiti
Help a developer help disaster victims.

Go here to help: http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&link=BeAHero

I'm guying at least a shirt. Who's with me?

If you're ever wanted anything from the Bungie store now's the best time to spend the money and give at the same time.

If you don't have the cash, then you can play Halo 3 next Wednesday and Thursday, (Jan 20 & 21), Bungie will make a donation for you. You can't beat that. Play a game and give.

From IGN -
Quote :
January 15, 2010 - Bungie has posted a call to action. It is asking all gamers to step up and "Be a Hero" for Haiti. I'm sure you've heard of the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti earlier this week and I'm sure you know the people there need as much help as you can offer. Here's one way you can help.

Go ahead and buy a special t-shirt at the Bungie Store and the company will donate 100% of the profits to the American Red Cross. The group will also be donating all of its profits from the Bungie Store, non-special shirt items included, from now until the end of February 2010.



The company adds, "Please note that this really only applies to Bungie apparel and accessories in our online store – if you wanted to add an HD TV or Xbox 360 game to your cart at checkout, Bungie doesn't actually see any real proceeds from those 3rd party items."

Even if you can't afford some monetary donations, Bungie is still offering a way for you to help. Play Halo 3 or Halo 3: ODST online next Wednesday or Thursday while wearing a special emblem of support and Bungie will make a donation for you. For every 1,000 participants, $100 goes to the American Red Cross on behalf of Bungie and its community, up to a maximum donation of $77,000.

Don't miss out, here are the specifics on how to participate according to Bungie.

1. Round up all of your friends and hop online with Halo 3 or ODST any time next from 00:01AM PST Wednesday, 1/20, through 23:59PM PST Thursday 1/21.

2. Edit your appearance settings so your character is wearing the RED HEART emblem.
a. Press START
b. Select "SETTINGS" / "APPEARANCE"
c. Select "EMBLEM"
d. Select "Hearts" ICON, "Circle" BACKGROUND
e. Back out to the APPEARANCES menu and select "COLORS"
f. Set "EMBLEM PRIMARY" to RED (or MAROON / BRICK / ROSE depending on which game you're playing!)
g. Set "EMBLEM SECONDARY" to WHITE
3. Once your emblem is set, play! This can be a custom game or a matchmaking game, just make sure it's played online, on Xbox LIVE, or we can't track it.

If you keep playing more games through midnight on Thursday, KEEP THE HEART EMBLEM ENABLED or you may not get counted.

Last, but not least, take some screenshots of your escapades and tag them as HERO. Bungie will be sending some special t-shirts to some participants as a way of saying thanks.
