Gamers Fight Hunger
At Action Against Hunger, we’re amazed by the creative ways that hunger fighters show their support. Recently, we received some incredible support from Humble Bundle, Sid Meier and 2K games, as well as members of the gaming community. Through the sale of the Humble Sid Meier Bundle, gamers raised $1.2 million to help us fight malnutrition around the world!
What is Humble Bundle?
Humble Bundle is an awesome online gaming platform that releases limited edition games and allows gamers to name their own price for a "bundle" of games, all the while supporting a nonprofit with their purchase.
The legendary game designer Sid Meier handpicked Action Against Hunger as the designated nonprofit for the bundle that included a fantastic collection of games from the iconic Civilization series. In less than two weeks, over 400,000 bundles were sold, making it one of the most successful Humble Bundle promotions to date.
“To date, the Humble Sid Meier Bundle is one of our most successful bundles and we were thrilled to not only deliver wonderful games to you but also contribute to the fight against world hunger.”

Humble Bundle helps save lives
Thanks to effective and affordable nutrition treatment, $45 is all it takes to save a malnourished child’s life. This means that the Humble Bundle community’s generosity will help us save more than 26,000 young lives!
What else can their support help us achieve? Check out the video our staff made and read our impact report to find out.
On behalf of everyone at Action Against Hunger, thank you to the gamers who purchased the bundle and for helping us do what we do best: save lives.
