Humble Bundle charity efforts have raised more than $150 million for good causes since the digital game retailer has been in business. Humble Bundle first debuted way back in 2010 with a focus on selling games on a steep discount and donating a portion of the proceeds to charity. The team behind some of gaming's best deals have now announced that they have crossed a massive milestone: more than $150 million has been raised since the company's inception.

Since Humble's first bundle in 2010, raising money for charity has been at our core. Everything we sell, from bundles to Store games to our Humble Monthly subscription, gives a share to charity. We feature a different charity sitewide every month. By focusing our community's efforts on one cause at a time, we can work together to make an even bigger impact for each one.
A special page on the company's website highlights the fruits of the Humble Bundle charity efforts over the previous decade. Customers are able to choose from more than a thousand different charities from around the world and donate as much of their purchase price as they'd like to these organizations. Supported charities include well-known organizations like the American Red Cross, Make-A-Wish, and the World Wildlife Fund along with lesser-known causes. Search for a place or a cause that interests you, and you're sure to find something that's worth supporting!

Pretty much all purchases made through the Humble Bundle website (whether it's a bundle or something you bought off of the store) donates a portion of proceeds to charity and you're often able to select the exact amount you would like to contribute. A different charity is also highlighted on a rotating basis; the current charity being highlighted is Red Nose Day.

 

Humble Bundle shows no signs of stopping selling games and donating to charity. Pop on over to their website and see if there are any great deals that catch your eye!

Disclosure: Humble Bundle works with TechRaptor for affiliate partnership.
