The Humble Sid Meier Bundle was a huge success!
In less than two weeks, over 400,000 bundles of Sid Meier Civilization strategy games were sold! Gamers not only got to name their price for games from the legendary designer, they had the option of choosing where their money went!
But the best part?
Thanks to the generosity of Sid Meier, 2K, Humble Bundle and the Humble Bundle community, as well as the amazing support of you and your fellow gamers, Action Against Hunger has received $1.2 million to help us fight hunger all around the world!

Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization on a mission to end deadly hunger. We save the lives of severely malnourished children and help communities become self-sufficient in more than 40 countries worldwide.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to hunger, so we take a holistic approach: tackling both immediate threats and the root causes of hunger. Our work saves hundreds of thousands of lives and transforms over seven million more each year!

Your generosity will help us reach children all over the globe – children like 2-year-old Musa in Dumbol, Nigeria. Nigeria has the third largest number of severely malnourished children in the world and more than half of Nigerians don’t have access to clean water and proper sanitation.
When survival is a struggle, paying for a bus ticket seems like a luxury. But in Musa's case, it was a necessity: when he fell ill, his mother Umbodu had to buy a bus ticket to bring him to our treatment center several hours away. There’s not much a mother won’t do for her children.
When Musa arrived at the treatment center, he was severely malnourished and suffering from diarrhea. Diarrhea can be a death sentence for a malnourished child – their bodies simply lack the strength to fight it off.
Musa received medical attention and lifesaving nutritional treatment, and before long, he regained his health. Soon, he was able to return home with his mother.
Musa Gets the Care He Needs
Musa's mother feeds him ready-to-use therapeutic foods, which are specially formulated to help malnourished children regain their health.
Our programs are restoring health and hope throughout Nigeria. Last year alone, we provided nutritional treatment for over 28,000 people and provided clean, safe water to 12 communities. More children like Musa no longer go to bed hungry, and mothers like Umbodu can sleep sound knowing their children are healthy.
