10 Geeky Charities to Donate to Through Humble Bundle - Geek.com

Humble Bundle is a great digital store for books and products from game developers. But their beauty lies in “bundling” items together and allowing the consumer to pay what they want. Past bundles have included music, books, games, and comic books. Once the purchaser decides on a price, they also get to choose a charity that a portion of their funds go to. Humble Bundle has raised well over $65 million for more than 50 charities. Here are 10 charities you can currently donate to through your Humble Bundle purchase.

Basically, they stand up for the First Amendment and fight against all who want to limit it.
