Buy Games for Good Causes

The Yogcast Jingle Jam is a once a year event that happens in December and can net you a lot of good games. Also, it's happening again this year, right now. Good news, and its already taking off quickly, with over 1 million raised for charity.

So how does it work? Well the ideas is simple. You buy one of two charity bundles on Humble Bundle and 100% of your money goes to charity. Many different charities get benefited from this, including the Call of Duty Endowment, Stand Up to Cancer, the Mental Health Foundation, War Child UK, and more. You can also pick and choose from some different charities if you have a specific one in mind.

 

There are two tiers you can pick from. One is available for $5. It will give you a shoutout on the Yogscast Stream, so everyone watching can know you donated. You'll also get an animated calling card for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, showing that you pledged your support.

It's the other tier, which costs $30, that nabs you the games. At the current time, you'll immediately get four games. The first is Kingdom: New Lands, a 2D city builder where you need to create cities and fight off armies. Bastion is the top-down action game classic that has you rebuilding a destroyed world. Rapture Rejects is a top-down battle royale with art by the creator of the popular webcomic Cyanide & Happiness. Finally, Crusader Kings II: Dynasty Starter Pack is a popular grand strategy game that comes bundled with several bits of DLC to help you enjoy ruling Europe. Do note that some of the games are in limited quantities, which will be sent out on a first come-first serve basis.

 

However, there's more. Every day, until December 20th, a new game unlocks in this tier and you'll get it. While you won't know what these games are until they unlock, that means you're getting another 19 games. Ultimately, it's a pretty good deal.
