In April, after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck the area in and around Kathmandu in Nepal, killing more than 8,800 people, Bungie is selling limited edition t-shirt, in-game shader and emblem for Destiny, with proceeds going to support relief efforts in the country. Activision
even put some into the pot with a donation of 50,000. This is a wonderful thing to show the rest of the world gamers are wonderful people.
“This was an astounding act of generosity on the part of Bungie and the larger Bungie community, and we at Direct Relief are deeply grateful — beyond what can be expressed in words,” Thomas Tighe, president and CEO of Direct Relief, said in a statement published by Bungie. “Most importantly, the Bungie community’s amazing support will translate immediately and directly into help for people in Nepal who experienced a tremendous blow, are in a very difficult and more vulnerable situation now as monsoon season nears, and also have a long, tough road ahead. Every penny will be spent to help strengthen essential health services that were needed before the earthquakes and much more so now.”
