Play Halo, Help Haiti
Bungie has a few different ways the bajillion and one Halo players out there can help relief efforts in Haiti.
You can buy a special t-shirt, the proceeds of which will go to the American Red Cross and you can help raise awareness (from your couch).
Bungie is also donating all profits from the Bungie store throughout the month of February to the American Red Cross. So if t-shirts aren't nerdy enough, you can get other gear.
You can also help by not spending any money at all. If you play Halo 3 or ODST today (and technically yesterday, too) make sure to wear a special emblem that shows your support. Bungie will donate $100 for every $1,000 "heroes" who participate - in other words you are worth 10 cents. They are only doing it up $77,000 which is okay, I guess, considering that most of the time I play there are a few hundred thousand other folks waiting for their turn to shoot me in the head.
