Do you want to make the world a slightly better place and be rewarded some games for being an awesome human being? It's simple: choose a charity you like from the three we have here (WWF, Worldbuilders, and Gaming for Good), pick out 3 games you like out of 13 offered, pay $5 or more, and we will give 100% of your donation to charity*! You can also pick more than 3 games, and your minimum donation will be raised accordingly. Want to donate more? No problem--you can set the amount manually. Don't need the games, or already have them? Select the "Gift this order" option at the checkout, and make some other gamer happy. Again, your choice of charity to help:

We've added three more titles to this special promo selection, thanks to awesome indie developers, who volunteered their games to take part in this charitable action. The newly added games are: Anodyne by Analgesic Productions, a psychological retro adventure game with nostalgic action-RPG feel and deep story, bundled with MP3 soundtrack, Escape Goat by Magical Time Bean, a captivating puzzle-platformer with many clever and challenging stages, and 8-bitish retro visuals, and Gemini Rue by Wadjet Eye Games, a gritty neo-noir point-and-click adventure game masterfully mixing Sci-Fi and crime mystery genres. Thank you for making this happen, guys!
Our whole-hearted thanks also go to: Introversion Software (Darwinia), Subset Games (FTL: Faster Than Light), Tiger Style Games (Waking Mars), Amanita Design (Botanicula), Instant Kingdom (Driftmoon), Northway Games (Incredipede), Digital Game Factory (Creatures: Village), Might & Delight (Pid), Daedalic Entertainment (The Whispered World), and Oddworld Inhabitants (Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee).. All of the devs are receiving nothing for their games in this charity but the good karma that comes from doing a good deed. Take a moment and tweet, facebook, or email them and tell them how much you appreciate their participation in this, and then you'll be extra awesome yourself. :)
*GOG.com is paying out some money as well; for every $1 donated, it costs us about $0.25 to cover the credit card fees, taxes, and other fees to make sure that literally 100% of what you donate goes to charity. So, let's say you want to donate $10. We'll add about $2.50 on top of that, to make sure that all of your donated money reaches the charity of your choice.

I'm having trouble adding this promo to my shopping cart.
I all ready have Race the Sun in my shopping cart...
then I click charity link, pick 3 games, click "checkout now"...
...and my shopping cart isn't included in the check-out, what gives?

I ran into a problem with your services before when I placed multiple orders FREEZING MY ACCOUNT.
I only want to place a single order to prevent my account from being frozen again do to multiple purchases in a day.
Sigh.

nijuu: Thats a shame. Im surprised there werent more devs interested in the event......

Lodium: Actually there is more devs across more platforms
But not in the same format as here where they support more than one Organazation.

Hmm, seams like a regular thing but i migth be wrong.

Edit : I think Humble Bundle also supports charity.
I think your confused. I meant devs with games on GOG who were willing to support this event. Most indie bundles support some form of charity. GOG is doing this charity thing for the first time.
When does this promotion end? Want to get some extra doubloons for charity first.

As far as I know, when you buy games in a special sale you can't place an order with other games that didn't make it into the sale. I believe you have to make two separate purchases, but I might be wrong.

for speciallized sales i guess it wont work, but the gerneral % off promos you can just add those to cart to beghin with.
and again... gog, you're huge! =)

Yep, the weekend sales discount each game independently, but these special promos only make sense in their own context (the games are only discounted when you buy them along with others in the same promo) and that's probably why they need a separate purchase.
I'm going to pick World Builders here... why?

Save the Children's USA political involvement:
http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/summary.php?id=D000037396

World Wildlife Fund's USA political involvement:
http://www.opensecrets.org/orgs/summary.php?id=D000058724

There's something deeply sickening and ironic about these two organizations, even if they do good work, having such a heavy hand in political donations and election lobbying. Ironic, because they spend so much on bribery to influence the political process instead of spending directly into their humanitarian / ecological projects, just like their opposition in corporations like Monsanto. Sickening, because some of the very people they helped elect (especially Obama) are actors in a government whose military is responsible for the brutal deaths of millions of children over the past few decades. (And hundreds of children just from drones alone within the past few years...)

Only Heifer International seems to really be mostly free of this political influence. A lot of their work is actually about reversing the pillaging and looting of traditional communities by "civilized" national governments... as evidenced by where their programs exist: https://heifer.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/heifer.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=147

Note how the United States is on the same list as Haiti... You know there's something screwed up when such a wealthy nation offsets it's humanitarian work onto nonprofit organizations... And yes, I live in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area, so I have seen this in action...

Go vent your political garbage elsewhere. This is for gaming. Who cares about your geopolitical crap? Go peddle your papers elsewhere.

Im sorry. But i tend to agree. Its GOGs decision as to what charities they decide to use in good faith for this event and people really shouldn't be posting stuff like that no matter how they feel about those charities.
Nice GOG, even though I'm not interested in any games on offer I'm thinking that if I get the money soon I'm going to still do a donation just to donate. Keep up the awesome work.

No, it's not for gaming, it's for charity. Be intelligent with your entertainment purchases, but be much more intelligent with your charitable donations, even when those donations are subsidized by game developers. You're right: who cares about geopolitical crap? I ensure the charities I donate to don't care about it, and are instead focused on charity work.

I don't think he was criticizing GOG, I think he was saying "I believe X charity deserves your money the most because Y and Z are heavily involved in some shady political stuff". I, for one, am very careful with my charitable donations after a certain controversial Red Cross incident in my area occurred and I appreciate StickOfPlywood's comment.
