Humble Bundle has raised over $50 million
With the help of its community, the digital distributor has raised funds for more than 50 charitable organizations
Humble Bundle, which launched back in 2010, has announced a new milestone: over $50 million raised for charities to date. The digital distributor, which allows consumers to pay what they want and decide how to divide money between content creators, charity and a humble tip, has leveraged its community to raise money for more than 50 charitable organizations, including Child's Play Charity, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the American Red Cross, charity: water and Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières.
"We never imagined after the first Humble Indie Bundle that we might one day reach this milestone," said John Graham, co-founder and COO of Humble Bundle. "It is hard to truly comprehend the magnitude of $50 million for charity. We owe our thanks to the generosity of the Humble Bundle community -- to the content creators who entrust us with their works of art and to the consumers -- for making this possible."
In addition to the Indie Bundle, the Humble Store was launched in 2013, offering digital games at deep discounts. Ten percent of all Humble Store purchases support select charities, and the store reached the $1 million for charity milestone in June 2014. Humble Bundle has also expanded beyond PC games, offering mobile games, audiobooks and e-books.
