Itch.io's Racial Justice and Equality Bundle Ends With Over $8.1 Million Raised

After merely 11 total days on sale.

In case you haven't already heard, Itch.io's historic bundle to raise money to fight for racial equality and justice has been going since near the beginning of this month. The bundle has now ended its run on the market after right around 11 days on sale, with the final total soaring above $8.1 million raised.

The Racial Justice and Equality bundle, which includes games from over 1300 creators, has now been purchased by over 800,000 customers, as of when the sale ended earlier today. The amount the bundle has raised in total, let alone the amazing amount of creators it's brought together under one roof, has been nothing short of fantastic.

Itchio's Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality launched back near the beginning of this month on June 5. In less than two days since it first went on sale, the bundle managed to pull together well over $2 million, an already-staggering amount raised. All proceeds raised by the bundle will be evenly split between the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and the Community Bail Fund.

As for the creators themselves that included their games in the bundle, it's an eclectic bunch. Some standouts included Night in the Woods, Minit, and Oxenfree, to name merely a few of the games, in a total list that included over 1,700 products.

At the end of the day, the bundle has absolutely smashed its original goal of $5 million, with 160% of Itch.io's original funding goal met. $5,000 was the single top contribution made across the campaign, and $10 was the average contribution (it's worth remembering $5 was the minimum price for the bundle).
