Today, Humble Bundle announced that the Humble community has helped raise $200 million in support of outstanding charitable initiatives and organizations like Girls Who Code, It Gets Better Project, Action Against Hunger, and many more since the company was founded 11 years ago. Following that first game bundle in 2010, which attracted more than 130,000 people, Humble has built a platform that has given a passionate community of tens of millions of gamers globally a dedicated avenue for rallying behind important causes.
Inspired by that initial response, bundles eventually expanded to include books and software. In 2013, the Humble Store came online, with a portion of those purchases directed to charity as well. And a few years after that, the Humble monthly PC-game subscription service, now known as Humble Choice, also sends a percentage to a featured charity each month.
Humble also continued to provide unique ways to give back to important causes through 100%-to-Charity programs. This past spring, Humble Heal resulted in $1.17M in donations to support COVID relief, and our first Humble Exclusive featuring Stephen King’s Red Screen recently raised nearly $150K for the ACLU’s efforts to protect people’s rights and civil liberties.
Today, Humble is excited to announce that since that very first bundle in 2010, tens of millions of players have now helped raise a total of $200 million through their Humble purchases, resulting in unparalleled support from the global gaming community for important social causes.
