EA won't make money in the new Humble Origin Bundle


Humble Bundle regularly offers groups of games for the low price of "whatever you want to pay," with the option to send your money to the developers, Humble itself or to charity. Since launching in 2010, Humble has raised more than $50 million for charity -- and its latest bundle looks to add to that total. For the next two weeks, the Humble Origin Bundle 2 benefits only charity and Humble Bundle, since EA has opted out of making any money from this particular sale. The bundle supports Girls Who Code, which encourages young women to pursue computer science degrees, The V Foundation for Cancer Research and buildOn, a group that aims to improve conditions in the developing world by emphasizing women's education. Who knew supporting charity could be so fun?

The Humble Origin Bundle 2 offers $134 in games, and the following titles can be yours for any price you wish to pay: Dragon Age: Origins, Peggle, Dead Space 2, Medal of Honor Allied Assault War Chest and Command & Conquer Generals. Pay more than the average (currently hovering around $5) to grab Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, Dragon Age 2, Bejeweled 3 and Mass Effect 2. Plus, Humble will add more games to the "pay more than the average" tier before the 14 days are up, and all new titles are retroactively added to the carts of above-average spenders. Buy some cool games, support some charities you care about: Win-win in its truest sense.
