Or some other charity. I know most of us hate eververse on some level, but imagine if Bungie used it as a real force for good in the world? Actually bringing a piece of the light out of the realm of entertainment, and into reality? Picture 30% (or even 10%) of annual earnings from eververse going into charity. How much good could that do, when we the couch potatoes of the Destiny fanbase throw our wallets at the screen for a shot at that sexy ghost shell? Bungie could even start a new charity, all its own, that would assist eligible community members in need. Recently, a well known member of the offtopic subforum posted his farewell post: https://www.bungie.net/en/Forums/Post/244453404?sort=0&page=0 This was not another cringy, "I'm leaving now" post, but an actual farewell post written from a hospital bed. In it, he tells that he has anywhere from 12hrs to 2weeks left to live. Facing imminent death with a measure of stoic resolve, he still can't bear to leave his young daughter behind. For those of us in Offtopic, this post was quite saddening, as we've all been following his battle against cancer since he first posted regarding initial diagnosis. How much could an eververse based charity help someone like this? If not with medical expenses, perhaps a modest donation to a college fund for his young daughter? The bungie community is, of course, bigger than offtopic; and stories like these are not uncommon as we face the inevitable darkness that life brings our way. Profit, of itself, is neither darkness or light. But Bungie could make it something good. At the end of the day, we know eververse is not going anywhere, I supported its removal as much as anyone during the last Dawning. If it is here whether we like it or not, why not make it something meaningful? [spoiler]Moderator edit: This thread has been moved to #Feedback forum so that other Destiny players can weigh in.

Edited by SlabKing35: 4/17/2018 3:26:15 PMFor every $1 donated 90 cents go into the pocket of some higher ups BTW most of america is living paycheck to paycheck so why ask us to give our hard earned money to rich people let them do it. Or focus on universal healthcare Legislation which will help far more than making rich people more rich.
