Humble Bundle
Humble Bundle is a recurring special offer where you can buy a (usually) DRM-free bundle of games, often indie games, music albums, movies, ebooks or standup comedy. They are available via direct download for PC, Mac, Linux and sometimes Android. The games are also often redeemable on Steam, and some on Origin and Desura.

There are fifteen bundles to date, each containing different titles, and although you can freely choose the price you wish to pay you generally get extra titles if you pay above the still-reasonable average donation. They also have run a livestream of developing new games in conjunction with Mojang. Each bundle has generally enjoyed six-figure sales and brought in revenue totalling somewhere between half a million to two million US dollars, with the Origin Bundle bringing in nearly 10 million dollars for its charities and Humble inc.

When you buy a bundle, you choose how much of your money goes to the publishers/comedians/writers/producers/developers, various charities (which have included the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the American Red Cross, Child's Play, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, Human Rights Campaign and Water charities), and the organization running the Humble Bundle. Humble Bundle is the most famous (but not the only) bundle to use this approach.
