Poor Houston. News broke that a big chemical plant is likely to explode soon. This is such a disaster.

For anyone not aware, Seattle is the rainiest city in the country. They got 48 inches of rain last year. Houston has gotten 52 inches in the last 3 days.

I think those numbers are right. Might be off by 1 or 2 inches. I'll donate for sure

Wow, damn nice idea to give out in-game content to encourage people to donate. As was mentioned though, it would be better if there was an option to just buy the code digitally, or at least pair it with an item I'm not just gonna throw away, like a shirt or something.

Wait, you want them to offer a Bungie Foundation emblem without donating to it?

Holy moly, $18 shipping?

There's no way that this costs 18 dollars to ship. Is Bungie profiting off this?

I still have my Flood shirt for donating to their Katrina relief program.

Shirt was awesome. By the time I saw it, it was gone.

Grabbed mine. Really love that Bungie do this.


Which one was that, must have missed it!


That's the Nepal Earthquake shirt.

Oh my bad I thought Hurricane Katrina was a mistake and I forgot Halo's infected things were called The Flood. Didn't know Bungie has been doing this for so long. Good on them.

These things really do help and it all adds up. Wonder how big the next check will be since Destiny has grown considerably.

Cool.

IIRC Bungie also did some sort of donation collecting sometime around Halo 3/Reach.

It's $5 for me an I'm from the UK : /

What option are you looking at? The most expensive one for me is $40 odd but that's like some UPS super priority one
Same. I picked the cheapest with no tracking because to be honest I'm not fussed if the pin arrives - I wanted the emblem and to donate.

Much love from NZ. FYI standard shipping was $7nzd.

Like everyone else with a heart, I honestly don't care if I get either emblem or pin. And knowing NZ post if it makes it to our shores they will do their utmost to lose it anyway.

I've never bought anything from the Bungie Store, but does anyone know when they ship stuff? My order is still "unfulfilled."

It says on the product page that the initial run is quite small, and that other orders may ship in October if memory serves after they've manufactured more pins.

But in my experience they're not super fast with despatching stuff.
