Humble Bundle launches Ukraine Bundle with 100% of proceeds going to charity

Humble Bundle has joined forces with a number of different game creators, book publishers, and software makers from all around the world to launch a special “Stand with Ukraine” bundle. The bundle will give 100% of its proceeds to support the humanitarian efforts in Ukraine through charity partners.

Ever since February 2022, the people of Ukraine have faced criminal injustice in the form of the Russian invasion. They have been forced to flee their homes and leave everything they know behind to escape from Vladamir Putin’s armies. The loss of human life has been devastating, and the oppressors cruelly charging ahead and robbing the people of Ukraine their livelihoods is something that’s been happening every single day since Russia’s invasion.

The people of Ukraine need help – and Humble Bundle hopes that their “Stand with Ukraine” bundle will do just that through charity.

Available now through March 25, 2022, the “Stand with Ukraine” bundle features 100+ games, books, and software. Featured games include: Back 4 Blood, Metro: Exodus, Satisfactory, Fable Anniversary, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, The Long Dark, and more. Featured books include huge TTRPG rulebooks, such as Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rulebook, Starfinder Core Rulebook, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition Core Rulebook, and many others. Featured software includes GameMaker Studio 2 Creator 12 Month license, RPG Maker VX, Polygon Farm, Unity to Music Maker EDM Edition, and more.

The charities that will receive proceeds from the bundle are the following:

  • Razom for Ukraine: Razom means “Together” – aka, “Together for Ukraine.” This charity looks to amplify Ukraine voices abroad, as well as sending over medicial supplies to those in Ukraine.
  • Direct Relief: They provide international care by providing doctors and nurses with life-saving medical resources to care for the most vulnerable people. They have deployed more than 30 tons of medical aid to Ukraine since the war broke out.
  • International Rescue Committee: IRC helps people affected by humanitarian crises to survive, recover, and rebuild their lives. The IRC is currently on the ground in Poland and are working closely with partners to reach vulnerable people and families fleeing Ukraine with essential health and protection assistance, and essential items.
  • International Medical Corps: The IMC provides lifesaving healthcare and supplies to children, families, and communities that have lost everything due to conflict, disaster, and disease in countries all over the world. They have a team on the ground inside Ukraine, focusing on emergency and primary health services, as well as mental health and psychosocial support services and protection, and gender-based violence services
