The Humble Bundle is back with a blast of Freedom!

Take a stand for freedom. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door. – “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus, from an engraving on the Statue of Liberty.

We humbly remember that the United States is a nation of immigrants, and we proudly stand with developers, authors, and charities that champion liberty and justice for all.

This special one-week bundle features over $600 in incredible games and books for just $30. 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.

We chose these three organizations because of the inspiring work they do in providing humanitarian assistance to refugees and displaced people as well as in defense of justice, human rights, and civil rights:

Every day, MSF staff members who serve on the front lines of the global refugee crisis bear witness to the extreme hardships faced by refugees and internally displaced people. …”Refugees are mothers and fathers and children who want what we all want: a safe place to live their lives, free from war and persecution…” – DoctorsWithoutBorders.org

The confusion and chaos that resulted from the Administration’s hasty and harmful executive order should be a lesson to keep intact carefully developed procedures that have kept America safe. We are grateful that we can get back to work resettling refugees who have fled the terrors of war and violence, while also caring for those who remain trapped in conflict zones. …The IRC remains committed to serving our refugee clients here in the U.S. and in more than 40 countries around the world. – Rescue.org

The ACLU was founded to ensure the promise of the Bill of Rights and to expand its reach to people historically denied its protections. In our first year, we fought the harassment and deportation of immigrants whose activism put them at odds with the authorities. …And at times in our history when frightened civilians have been willing to give up some of their freedoms and rights in the name of national security, the ACLU has been the bulwark for liberty. – ACLU.org

Redeem the games on Steam. All of the games in this bundle are available on Steam for Windows, and some for Mac and Linux too. A number of the games are available DRM-free as well.

Take the books anywhere. The ebooks are available in PDF, ePUB, and MOBI formats, meaning you can read them anywhere at any time. Instructions and a list of recommended reading programs can be found here. The audiobooks are available in MP3 and FLAC format, meaning you can listen to them anywhere, too! Instructions can be found here.

Support charity. Choose where the money goes between three organizations: the ACLU, MSF/Doctors Without Borders, and the International Rescue Committee. Humble Bundle will match your contributions up to $300,000! (MSF and the IRC are supported via the Paypal Giving Fund.)
