Halo NAACPLDF Fundraiser

By 343 Industries -

Over the past few weeks, long-standing issues of systemic racism have moved into the global spotlight spurring social activism and demands for real change. At 343 Industries, we stand united with our Black colleagues, friends, players, and communities of color in the fight for justice and equality. We unequivocally believe Black Lives Matter.

Halo has always embodied themes of Hope and Heroism and we see these values echoed in the actions and efforts of the Halo community. We see your heroic actions – listening, learning, amplifying voices, speaking out, taking a stand – and through these acts of heroism, we share a growing sense of hope for a better future.

If you’re in a position to contribute financially, there are numerous options available globally, nationally, and locally to make an impact. We encourage you to take some time to research and find a cause that resonates with you. And, we know financial donations aren't an option for everyone -  many organizations and movements often offer opportunities to contribute human energy too through volunteerism. If you’re not sure where to start or need an extra nudge, we’re kicking off a month-long in-game fundraising effort to help support the fight against racial injustice.

For every REQ Pack purchase in Halo 5: Guardians from June 19 through July 19, 2020, Microsoft will donate all proceeds* to the NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund.

The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. is America’s premier legal organization fighting for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. LDF also defends the gains and protections won over the past 75 years of civil rights struggle and works to improve the quality and diversity of judicial and executive appointments

There’s no single right way to get involved and how you choose to act is ultimately a personal decision – but the time to act is now. Stand up for what's right and help change the world. 

Thank you
