Humble Bundle and powerhouse game studio, Ubisoft, have teamed up in support of veterans of the armed services for their latest bundle. If you're unfamiliar with Humble Bundle, they offer curated packs of video games and books for people to pay what they like (with a fixed minimum). So, with as little as $1, customers can buy from a pool of pre-selected games and books with a portion of the proceeds going to charity. You can even decide for yourself how you want the proceeds divided between the game studio, the charity and Humble Bundle's "tip jar."
For their latest games bundle, they are supporting the military charity Stack-Up.org. The non-profit organization works to support veterans of the armed services and active servicemen and women through the joy of video games. Founded by U.S. Army veteran, Stephen "Shanghai Six" Machuga, Stack-Up supplies care packages filled with video gaming and "nerd goodness" to veterans deployed in active combat zones, humanitarian zones, recovering in hospitals and to stateside veterans in need. Stack-Up will also sponsor veterans to travel to game and geek culture events and conventions like Comic-Con and E3. Additionally, veterans and civilians can come together through "Stacks," local groups that work together to support the organization and each other.
Also supported in this bundle is the children's charity, Extra Life. The organization works to support the Children's Miracle Network through gaming. Every year a host of teams from around the world come together to donate to the organization through sponsored marathon gaming sessions.
The bundle consists of Ubisoft titles like Rayman Origins, Far Cry 3, Assassin's Creed Rogue and Tom Clancy's The Division. You can pay anywhere between $1 and $75 (or more), depending on how much you're willing to spend and what game titles you want. The $75 price tag unlocks all the titles in the bundle. Overall, the entire bundle is worth $157.
There are 11 days left on the bundle to support Stack-Up and Extra Life so grab your games while you can! You can also visit Stack-Up.org to donate directly or get involved and start a "Stack" in your town!
