Itch.io has created a bundle of 742 different indie games created by 564 different creators for $5. The bundle allows you to pay $5 or more to donate to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund split 50/50. The goal of the bundle is to raise $1,000,000 and at the time of writing this post, they’ve raised over $800,000 between over 70,000 donors. One of these games includes the coveted award winning title, Night in the Woods.
We live in a time of racial injustice, inequality, and police brutality against black people. We hope that everyone takes a stand in any way that they can. We’ve partnered with creators from all across our platform to support organizations that are working directly with those affected.
We reached out to our community and an unprecedented number of creators donated over 740 projects to be part of what we believe is the largest bundle ever. Over $3,400 of paid works are available Pay-what-you-want with a minimum donation amount of $5.
This movement is incredibly important for us to move forward as a society and finally question the racial biases of our country. This is the first step in a very long, strenuous journey of racial equality and justice. To show your support to the #BlackLivesMatter movement, please consider purchasing this bundle. If you’d like to show more support, you can donate to directly 70+ community bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizers through ActBlue. The time is now to show your support for your Black friends, families, and peers.
