Contribute to the Humble Origin Bundle for a bushel of hit games

The Humble Bundles are extremely popular, offering a massive selection of hot indie games or esteemed classics for a price you just can't beat. What's more, the entire project is about raising money for charity. The most recent Humble Origin Bundle managed to raise a whopping $5 million, reaching more than one million people. Now that's some serious giving.

The bundle, launched on Wednesday, featured a cornucopia of popular EA games like Mirror's Edge, Crysis 2: Maximum Edition, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Medal of Honor, Dead Space, and Dead Space 3. If you pay more than the average, which is currently $4.82, you also unlock Battlefield 3 as well as The Sims 3, including two DLC packs. Normally you'd be paying around $215, but as you name your own price (starting with a dollar), you're getting a heck of a deal here.

Proceeds are being donated to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation , the American Red Cross , the Human Rights Campaign , Watsi , and the American Cancer Society . You can divvy up your contributions how you wish amongst the charities, and then tear into some awesome games.

If you haven't yet snagged this deal, head on over to the official page to get your game on for a few great causes.
