Beginning today Ã¢â‚¬Å“HaloÃ¢â‚¬Â fans can contribute to BungieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s relief efforts for Haiti by participating in the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Be a HeroÃ¢â‚¬Â campaign on Xbox LIVE. For every 1,000 people that wear a red heart emblem and play Ã¢â‚¬Å“Halo 3Ã¢â‚¬Â or Ã¢â‚¬Å“Halo 3: ODSTÃ¢â‚¬Â online today or tomorrow, Bungie will donate $100 to Red Cross, up to $77,000. To find out more about the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Be a HeroÃ¢â‚¬Â campaign, visit Bungie
I’ll be online the next couple of days supporting this effort and i hope to see you too.
Here are the specifics from Bungie:
1. Round up all of your friends and hop online with Halo 3 or ODST any time next from 00:01AM PST Wednesday, 1/20, through 23:59PM PST Thursday 1/21.
2. Edit your appearance settings so your character is wearing the RED HEART emblem.
