BUNGIE RAISES $1 MILLION USD THROUGH GUARDIANS FOR AUSTRALIA
The Bungie Foundation is proud to announce its Guardians for Australia t-shirt campaign has raised $1 million USD (approximately 1.7 million AUD at the time of sending) to support those impacted by the Australian bushfires. Since launching on January 14, over 75,000 shirts were sold and are now on their way to supportive guardians worldwide.
The Guardians for Australia t-shirt incorporates iconic Australian flora and fauna, as well as a Guardian ship patrolling the landscape overhead. Funds raised will go towards the NSW Rural Fire Service and Wires
The Guardians for Australia fundraiser follows previous efforts for the 2015 earthquake relief in Nepal and the 2017 relief effort for Hurricane Harvey. Bungie also ran Game2Give in 2018 to support the Bungie Foundation’s iPads for Kids Program and Children’s Miracle Network benefiting sick kids across the United States.
“We are blown away by the outpouring of love and generosity the Bungie community has shown for Australia following their devastating wildfire seasons. Because of our fans, the New South Wales Rural Fire Service will be better equipped to deal with future challenges and serve the community in times of need. WIRES will be able to rehabilitate their sick, injured and displaced wildlife while restoring their natural habitats. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for continuing to demonstrate that the Bungie community is stronger together and truly makes our world a better and kinder place.”
– Christine Edwards, Senior Foundation Manager at Bungie Foundation
