EA Presents Humble Bundle Raised $1.65 Million To American Cancer Society

Earlier this year, Electronic Arts set records for its Humble Origin Bundle, and recently Peter Moore tweeted out an image of himself and others presenting part of the money to the American Cancer Society.

EA's Humble Origin Bundle gave players the opportunity to purchase Dead Space, Dead Space 3, Burnout Paradise, Crysis 2, Mirror's Edge, Medal of Honor, Command and Conquire: Red Alert 3, Battlefield 3, Populous, and Sims 3 for any price they chose, with all of the proceeds going to charity. According to Moore's tweet, the bundle raised $10.5 million. All of the money from the bundle is going to assorted charities including the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, the American Red Cross, and the American Cancer Society. The money for the American Cancer Society is just a small percentage of that money.

Our Take
The Humble Bundle has been doing great work since it began in 2010. It's nice to see the money actually trading hands and making its way to at least one of the charities as promised.
