Recent Humble Bundles Raise Nearly $130,000 for Extra Life

Recently we had two incredible Humble Bundles raise life-saving funds for Extra Life.

Read the Realms

Last month, Humble Bundle ran a Dungeons & Dragons ebook bundle to benefit Extra Life called “Read the Realms.”

It featured a collection of 23 fantasy novels set in the D&D universe. “Most of the books are part of the New York Times best-selling fantasy series, The Legend of Drizzt. Set in the Forgotten Realms D&D setup, The Legend of Drizzt has been running since 1988, recounting the adventures of a dark elf named Drizzt Do’Urden. The series is divided into various trilogies and collections, many of which are available in full as part of the package. They include the Dark Elf trilogy and Icewind Dale trilogy, and the Paths of Darkness collection.”

In three weeks, nearly 28,000 ebook bundles were sold #ForTheKids, raising over $93,000 USD to benefit Extra Life’s work! This ebook bundle worth $175 USD for a “pay what you can” price point garnered a high level of interest among D&D fans. The bundle was even spotlighted in an article on Geek Native.

Humble Big Music Bundle

Not only was the D&D fundraiser amazing, there was also another Humble Bundle underway last month. The Big Music Bundle, which was valued at $240 USD, featured music designed for content creators to add to videos, video games, podcasts and other audio files. The bundle featured over 300 different music works including the Big Action Music Bundle 1 & 2, Fantasy Adventure Game Music Pack, Epic Battle Trailers Music Pack, Big Casual & Arcade Game Music Bundle, and more.

After 20,041 bundles sold, this campaign went on to raise another $35,000 #ForTheKids!

Combined, these two bundles last month raised nearly $130,000 USD for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in a time that vulnerable families most need the support. Humble Bundle’s constant support for Extra Life (as well as so many other amazing charities) is truly remarkable. Last year alone, Humble Bundle’s strategic fundraising for Extra Life brought in over $800,000 USD!

Thank you to everyone who purchased a “Read the Realms” bundle or a “Big Music” bundle. Be sure to keep an eye out for future Humble Bundles to benefit Extra Life in the months to come.
