Origin Does it Right: The Humble Origin Bundle

humble-origin-bundle-logoWith less than 24 hours remaining, the Humble Origin Bundle has broken all records Humble Bundle has had since its inception.  More than 2 million copies of the bundle has sold and more than 10 million was raised, all of which is split at the donators decisions between six charities:

EA/Origin gets no money from the deal.  That means more than 10 million dollars is going directly to charity.  And the numbers continue to rise in the final hours of the Humble Origin Bundle.

Participants could donate any amount they wanted to get all of the following six games:

  • Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
  • Crysis 2: Maximum Edition
  • Dead Space
  • Dead Space 3
  • Medal of Honor
  • Mirror’s Edge

If you paid more than the minimum amount – right now the minimum is $4.92 – you got these additional games.

  • Battlefield 3
  • C&C Red Alert 3 – Uprising
  • Populous
  • Sim City 3 – Starter Pack

So for as little as $5, you could get codes for 10 amazing games.  Heck, you still have time to participate in the Humble Bundle and raise more money for charity.

While some people donated the bare minimum, others donated a lot more, including the following Top 5 donators (taken from www.humblebundle.com):

  1. herobrine is not real – $10,000.00
  2. PrivetizKemerovo – $5,000.00
  3. william xiang – $2,102.00
  4. US NAVY SAILOR – $2,000.00
  5. Janet – $1,500.00

So if you have a few dollars to spare and want to donate funds to any one, or all, of the charities, you have less than 24 hours to do so.  Check it out at: http://www.humblebundle.com
