Humble Store Generates $1 Million for Charities

June 23, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Purchases from The Humble Store have generated more than $1 million in charitable contributions to various charities, according to the Humble Bundle organization. Humble Bundle launched its Humble Store in November 2013 as a digital storefront for titles across Android, Linux, Mac and Windows PC.

Since the store's launch, the company says that it has donated 10 percent of all proceeds to five different charities and nonprofit organizations including the American Red Cross, Child's Play, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the World Land Trust, and Charity: Water. Organizers also said that 75 percent of the purchase price for every game goes to the developers.

"One million dollars for charity is a big deal," said John Graham, co-founder and COO of Humble Bundle, in a press release today. "In just six months, the Humble Store has grown from a mere humble experiment to something that gamers and game developers big and small want to be a part of."

Re: Humble Store Generates $1 Million for Charities

I wish I could see the humble store.  All the other pages on the humble site work (bundle, weekly bundle, the books/music/whatever they have going on, etc), but if I try to load the humble store, all I get is a big blank gray screen that says loading in the middle, and a shopping cart icon with 1 item in it up in the corner.  The page never fully loads.  :(
