To say that people have been struck with a lot of Natural Disasters recently would be an understatement. Earthquakes destroying huge portions of Mexico while Hurricanes interrupted people’s lifestyle in the US. Various zones across the world have been affected by these disasters and a lot of efforts have been done to help with the relief.
One of the biggest examples is that of the Speedrunning community. Which made a charity drive to help the people affected by Hurricane Harvey. However, a new effort joins the ranks of the helpers as 343 steps out to help with the relief efforts.
The company responsible for the latest in the Halo franchise to help affected people across various countries. “Like countless others, many of us here at 343 have been impacted in a variety of ways by the seemingly unending string of challenges reality has thrown humanity’s way recently.” Said 343 in a blog post. “From the Gulf Coast to Puerto Rico, from hurricanes to earthquakes to wildfires, there’s been no shortage of unbelievable hardship suffered by folks from all walks.”
The company trusts the Halo community to help with the efforts to help the affected. “With that in mind, this morning we launched the Relief & Recovery REQ Pack.” The blog post also adds that “the proceeds from which will go to GlobalGiving in effort to aid those still in desperate need of some assistance and respite.”
This means that people affected by Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Maria and the Earthquakes in Mexico will be helped. “The Relief & Recovery REQ Pack will receive five permanent REQs selected from the most popular visual customization REQs of ultra-rare or better rarity, if available, as well as ten rare or better boost cards.”
The pack will cost $9.99 USD and it’s going to be available from October 12 to 23. The pack will also be available in the Xbox LIVE Store and the in-game REQ store.
