In partnership with Xbox and HYPEMAKER, the creative agency of HYPEBEAST – a leading fashion, culture, and streetwear online destination – Bethesda teamed up to launch #HelmetsforHabitat: a charitable initiative to auction off custom Fallout 76 power armor helmets. Many renowned artists from around the world adorned the iconic T51 power armor helmet in their signature style, in preparation to be auctioned off at Paddle8
All proceeds from the final auction sale of each helmet will benefit Habitat for Humanity, a global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries, to advance the vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Bethesda Softworks is committed to donating a minimum of $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity. Auction ends November 14.
Bethesda’s previous initiatives with Habitat for Humanity include donating proceeds from sale of the “Take Me Home Country Roads” cover as heard in the official Fallout 76 announcement trailer, in addition to donating sales from the traveling Mement-o-Matic coin pressing machine. Bethesda is committed to donating a minimum of $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity over the course of these charitable initiatives.
For a limited time, fans in the New York City area will have a chance to see the helmets up close and personal prior to the auction end date. From October 25 through November 14 2018, the flagship Microsoft Store on Fifth Avenue will feature a special exhibit on the third floor that showcases a selection of helmets.
