The Humble Heal: COVID-19 Bundle has raised over 1 million dollars for charity

54,374 bundles were sold, raising 875,000.

The COVID-19 relief Humble Bundle has raised $1,170,824 (£825,000).

Humble launched the Heal COVID-19 Bundle a couple of weeks back to support a number of charities aiding the hardest-hit countries such as Brazil and India, as well as the global medical effort to save lives. It's gone on to sell 54,374 bundles and raise aid for the humanitarian efforts of Direct Relief, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), International Medical Corps, and GiveIndia.

"Direct Relief is tremendously grateful to Humble Bundle and its community of passionate and generous people," Direct Relief said in a statement on the official website (thanks, The Gamer). "Their collective efforts will translate to critically-needed medicines, supplies, and other resources to the hardest-hit communities in India and Brazil as they continue to battle rising cases of COVID-19.

"The generosity received as a result of Humble Bundle's effort is deeply inspiring and will serve as a force-multiplier to get more aid into these areas to improve the health and lives of those who are most vulnerable."

"On behalf of the patients we serve, I want to thank the Humble community for coming together in support of Doctors Without Borders during these times of crisis," added Doctors Without Borders. "With your generous donations, we will be able to support our lifesaving work in India and Brazil. Amid devastating waves of COVID-19, our aid workers are caring for the most vulnerable people, supporting overwhelmed health systems, and keeping essential health services available. To these communities, your support is a message that they are not alone. Thank you for stepping in to help save lives."

ICYMI, Humble has since rolled back its decision to add sliders on its bundle pages and promised to "review feedback and consider sliders and the importance of customisation for purchases on bundle pages in the long term".
