One of the Charities that Humble Bundle has been working with, and what’s being done. Based on Humble Bundle Mojam (from 02/15/2013) A little over 81,000 bundles sold, donating over $121,000. Great way to support independent game developers, while supporting different charities world wide!
One of the non-profits Humble Bundle has proudly supported is charity: water, an organization devoted to bringing clean and safe drinking water to every person on the planet.
charity: water uses 100% of public donations to directly fund water projects, and then proves each project with photos and GPS data they post online. They’ve been one of our favorite partners since launch, and through your support and generosity they’ve been able to bring clean water to thousands of people in Ethiopia and Rwanda.
Here’s an update on the impact you’ve made with charity: water through supporting Humble Bundle sales, and we’re doing even more with charity: water right now as one of our store partners. Every cent contributed to them through the store this year will fund water projects with local partner organizations in the developing world.
Ethiopia: 3,275 People with clean water
The Humble Bundle Mojam saw 81,457 Humble Bundle customers contribute a total of $121,780 towards charity:water. 100% of this money was used to fund water projects with charity: water’s partner Water Aid in Ethiopia.
Ethiopia is a country in east Africa where more than half the population of 91 million people lack access to clean water. Ethiopia is a beautiful country with a deep history: it is one of the oldest locations of human life known to scientists and was the birthplace of coffee.
The impact of this contribution was huge as the contributions from all of you helped (alongside other donors) fund six different water points: three tap stands, two new drilled wells and a rehabilitated drilled well. These projects now serve more than 3,000 people every day with clean water.
Thank you for your continued support! Please feel free to share this post and let your friends know how you’ve helped bring clean water to thousands!
