Minecraft Xbox 360 Halloween skin sales earn over $500,000 for charity

Sales of the Minecraft Xbox 360 Halloween Skin Pack have already topped $500,000 for charity, reports Play XBLA.

The pack is available through the Xbox Live Marketplace now until Nov. 26 for 160 Microsoft Points ($2), and 100 percent of each pack's purchase price will be donated to charities chosen by Mojang, Microsoft Studios and Minecraft Xbox 360 developer 4J Studios. These charities include Macmillan Cancer Support, Child's Play, SANDS Lothians and Block by Block.

The pack, announced late last month, features 55 Halloween-themed skin designed and donated by a group of developers.
