The latest Humble Bundle (opens in new tab) from the online charity store features $1,071 worth of games and ebooks for just $30, with all of the proceeds going towards support for "organizations responding to COVID-19."
The bundle, which is up and available to purchase only for the next six days, contains 48 PC games (each redeemed via a Steam code), from critically acclaimed indies like Hollow Knight, Into the Breach, and Superhot, to bigger hitters such as Brutal Legend, Darksiders 2, and Agents of Mayhem.

You are, as always, welcome to donate whatever you want, but you'll only unlock access to the bundle's library of games by paying at least $30/£25.50, which is still an absolute steal of a deal, no matter how you look at it.
Better yet, 100% of your proceeds will help organisations around the world engaged in the continued fight against the COVID-19 disease, such as those "delivering protective gear to safeguard healthcare workers and providing medical care to infected patients."
