Today, the “pay what you want” game sale platform, Humble Bundle, announced that it has contributed over $50 million dollars to charity. Since it was founded in 2010, the company has provided hundreds of games that customers were able to dictate how much money went towards the creators and various charities.
“We never imagined after the first Humble Indie Bundle that we might one day reach this milestone,” said co-founder John Graham. “It is hard to truly comprehend the magnitude of $50 million for charity.”
The Humble Bundle raised the mammoth figure for over 50 charities, including the likes of Child’s PLay, Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders and the World Land Trust.
In 2013, the Humble Bundle Store was launched – providing games, mobile apps, audiobooks and e-books with massive discounted prices. In June earlier this year, the store announced it had raised $1 million dollars for charitble causes.
