Mark your calendars and help out Haiti and it is as easy as playing Halo 3 or ODST online. This Wednesday 1/20 and ending 1/21 at 11:59PM all you have to do is wear a special emblem signifying your commitment to the Haiti cause, and for every thousand players that participate Bungie will make a $100 donation (up yo $77,000) on behalf of Bungie and their community to the Red Cross.
Here are the specifics:
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.
a. Press START
b. Select “SETTINGS” / “APPEARANCE”
c. Select “EMBLEM”
d. Select “Hearts” ICON, “Circle” BACKGROUND
e. Back out to the APPEARANCES menu and select “COLORS”
f. Set “EMBLEM PRIMARY” to RED (or MAROON / BRICK / ROSE depending on which game you’re playing!)
g. Set “EMBLEM SECONDARY” to WHITE
3. Once your emblem is set, play! This can be a custom game or a matchmaking game, just make sure it’s played online, on Xbox LIVE, or we can’t track it.
If you keep playing more games through midnight on Thursday, KEEP THE HEART EMBLEM ENABLED or you may not get counted.
So if you are a Halo fan or even if it is not one of your favorite games in your library be part of the Bungie and Halo community and help out a good cause.
