Itch.io Bundle For Abortion Funds Raises $50,000 In Under An Hour
Itch.io yesterday launched a fundraising bundle for abortion funds with a minimum prize of $10. It includes 750 indie games as well as a collection of soundtracks, books, digital comics, and more. In just one hour, he surpassed his goal of $50,000.
It’s still running for nine days with a brand new goal of $200,000, but it’s already at $131,214 with 7,696 backers (thanks, Gamer on PC). “100% of the proceeds from this batch will go to the Abortion Fund National Network Collective Energy Fund, which transfers money directly to abortion funds in more than 20 US states, with a particular focus on the South and Midwest (where access to abortion is often more difficult), itch.io wrote.
Although buying the lot costs $10, you can also offer more money for a larger donation or you can donate directly at donations4abortion.com. Itch.io launched this fundraising campaign in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade, threatening access to abortion nationwide.
The bundle is hosted by Caro Asercion, a game designer with a lot of his own work hosted on the site. It brings together 792 articles from 604 creators, all in solidarity with the NNAF. Buy and you can get games like Catlateral Damage, a first-person house cat destruction simulator, Sewer Rave, a rat party game, Zombie Admin, a twin-stick desktop zombie apocalypse shooter, and more.
It’s also not the only way people in games are raising money for abortion funds and access, as Star Wars fans have also stepped in, raising over $30,000 for the Federation. abortion national. It was done in less than 48 hours, calling on Star Wars fans to band together to protest the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
