0

Over 800,000 total donations

Donations are now closed on itch.io's Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, which offered an incredible selection of PC software for a minimum of just five dollars. As of this writing, the bundle closed out at an incredible total of $8.1 million USD, raised from just over 814,000 donations.

Launching a little over a week ago with an initial goal of $5 million, the software compendium continued to grow in size as momentum increased, eventually offering over 1,700 games, tools, soundtracks, and visual novels by the campaign's final hours. This included great titles such as Celeste, Octodad, A Short Hike, Oxenfree, Wheels of Aurelia, Nuclear Throne, Runner3, Arcade Spirits, Lancer, Gnog, Minit, and hundreds more. The average donation was a little over 10 bucks, while the single biggest donation was a huge $5,000.

The money raised will now be split evenly between two organisations: The NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, and the Community Bail Fund. A secondary bundle, The Black Lives Matter Support Bundle, is still live on itch.io for one more day, and is just $1,500 shy of reaching its $100,000 goal.
