Humble Store customers' contributions to charity top $1 million

Purchases on the Humble Store have generated more than $1 million in charitable contributions, the Humble Bundle organization announced today.

Humble Bundle launched the Humble Store in mid-November 2013, just over seven months ago, as a digital storefront for titles across Android, Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Since the Humble Store's launch, the company has donated 10 percent of all proceeds to five different charities and nonprofit organizations: the American Red Cross, Child's Play, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the World Land Trust and Charity: Water. And 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."

The Humble Bundle organization is also known for pay-what-you-want packages such as the Humble Indie Bundle and the Humble Weekly Bundle.
