Bungie Has Raised Over $500K For Hurricane Harvey Fund Relief

Recently, Bungie opened up preorders for a special Destiny 2 pin. Costing $15, the physical heart pin would also include an exclusive emblem to use inĀ Destiny 2, but more importantly, all proceeds earned from the sales of the pin would go to Direct Relief, an organization that helps areas that have been affected by recent natural disasters, such as Hurricane Harvey and the damage it caused in Texas.

Well, it seems Bungie was able to raise over $500K in funds for Direct Relief! Someone on NeoGAF posted the e-mail they received from Bungie about this news, as the e-mail went out to those who pre-ordered the pin:

Hello Guardian,

Thank you for your pre-order purchase of the Bungie Foundation Pin. Because of your generosity, the Destiny community raised over $500,000 to benefit Direct Relief in their mission to support the people in Houston, Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey, and continues to raise money to support areas around the US and Caribbean that have been most critically hit by recent natural disasters.

Due to the overwhelming response, all pre-orders for the pin are expected to ship in October 2017 and an order confirmation email will be sent to you once the item has shipped. You will find the Destiny 2 in-game emblem code included in the pin packaging. We appreciate your patience.

Thank you for bringing the Light to those who need it now more than ever.

If you wish to get the Foundation Pin and donate to Direct Relief, you still have a chance. Preorders are up until October 8.

Have you, or will you, be getting this pin?
