is a collectible heart pin that measures 1.5 inches. It's priced at $15, and all profits from sales of it will go to the Bungie Foundation. That money in turn will go to Direct Relief, a non-profit group that Bungie worked with back in 2015, when the developer sold t-shirts to help out after a major earthquake struck Nepal. That campaign raised more than $1 million.
The pin comes with a code to redeem in Destiny 2 that nets you a special emblem. You can see what both it and the pin look like above; emblems are displayed more prominently in Destiny 2 than in the previous game, allowing you to really show this off.
Bungie notes that orders will be shipped in the order that they're purchased, and that as of August 29, it has 15,000 in stock. More will be produced so they can ship out in mid-October.
