Bungie Raised A Lot Of Money In Donations In Just One Day!

The developers of Destiny have started fundraising for the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.


On February 6, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Gaziantep, Turkey. According to the AP, 13.5 million Turkish people live in the area, and many in Syria have also been affected by “the disaster of the century.” Unfortunately, the expression is justified: more than 20,000 people have already died in the natural disaster, and rescue teams from all over the world have been sent to the scene.

Bungie is collecting donations through its Bungie Foundation and has thanked the community on Twitter for their support of the studio. The audience, designated as the most generous, donated more than $200,000 in twenty-four hours. They thanked them for their generosity and support, which is genuinely unprecedented because it’s not easy to make a living these days (inflation is rampant in several countries).

You can donate on this website. You can donate any amount to the Bungie Foundation. Anyone who donates more than $25 will receive the Compassion Concentric emblem, designed by the studio exclusively for humanitarian relief efforts. Bungie is transparent about who players’ donations will go to, with funding going to Direct Relief and the International Rescue Committee.

It is always a pleasure to see players coming together to support people in need because empathy can be powerful. We hope that other companies, studios, and publishers will take similar initiatives because this is still a mighty earthquake, in which effectively two small towns’ population has been eradicated. The death toll could, unfortunately, rise, as who knows how many people have died under the rubble in the last week. Many rescue teams have left the location since people tend to survive for only five days under the rubble.
