Humble assures that 100 percent of the proceeds from the sales of the Humble Heal: Covid-19 Bundle will go to the said charities.
Humble says it has raised $514,762 (roughly Rs. 3.7 crore) till now with its Humble Heal: COVID-19 Bundle. The package has 23 games including Bioshock Remastered, Undertale, Hyper Light Drifter, The Witness, Superhot, Saints Row: The Third, Brutal Legend, and more. There are eight books and four software as well. All the games, software, and books can be redeemed on Steam.

To help how we can, we’re doing what we do best; putting together bundles of awesome games, books, and software for you to enjoy,” Humble says on the Humble Heal: COVID-19 Bundle page on its online store.
You can get this bundle for $20 or anything over $20 that you wish to contribute to the charities that are engaged in relief work in India, Brazil, and other countries. While making the payment, you can choose the charity you want to contribute to, or even divide the money between all four of them.
“When you pick up the Humble Heal: Covid-19 Bundle, you’ll enjoy a variety of content and the knowledge that 100 percent of your purchase proceeds are going to Direct Relief, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), International Medical Corps (IMC), and GiveIndia. Help save lives with the Humble Heal: Covid-19 Bundle today,” the company adds.
GiveIndia is a non-profit organisation that has been operational since 2000 and had launched India COVID Response Fund in April 2020 to help the country fight the pandemic. According to Humble, the initiative has impacted 5 million lives across 117 cities in India so far.

By default, your minimum $20 payment will be split equally between the four charities. The website also shows a list of top contributors from around the world. Typical bundles provided by Humble allow customers to pay as much or as little as they want starting from $1 (roughly Rs. 73). For COVID-19 relief, the minimum amount is set at $20.
