The pay-what-you-want Humble Bundle is widely known to offer some of the best gaming deals on the web for charity, and the service has raised over $50 million for noble causes to date. But the latest bundle is perhaps the greatest Humble has ever assembled, with over 47 games and books (valued at over $600, and possibly more to be added!) all for $30 in support of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the International Rescue Committee (IRC), and Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). This comes as a direct response to President Trump’s immigration ban, which gaming studios have greatly opposed. It’s a nice way to say FU to Trump while cashing in on some great (and often highly reviewed) games. You can get to the Freedom Humble Bundle here.

“This special one-week bundle features over $600 in incredible games and books for just $30,” the Humble team states in its post. “100% of your payments will go to the American Civil Liberties Union, the International Rescue Committee, and Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). Humble Bundle will proudly match your contributions up to $300,000.”

Humble Bundle told Astechnica that the idea for this offer was constructed jointly between its staff and some of the developers.

“Our employees, our business partners and our millions of customers come from all around the world,” Said Humble Bundle’s Jeffrey Rosen. “We stand together in dismay over Trump’s recent immigration ban. We find it to be un-American and damaging to global businesses like ours.”
