The EA Origin Humble Bundle raised a record $10.5 million, $1.65 million of which has been donated to the American Cancer Society, the publisher has announced.

"So proud of Team EA in raising $10.5M from the Humble Bundle, $1.65M of which goes to the American Cancer Society," EA COO Peter Moore said on Twitter.

The American Cancer Society is a community-based voluntary health organization that drives to eliminate cancer as a major health problem. The group, founded 100 years ago in 1913, has more than 900 offices across the country.

The Humble Origin Bundle, which closed at the end of August, allowed gamers to pay a minimum of $1 for Dead Space 3, Dead Space, Mirror's Edge, Crysis 2: Maximum Edition, Medal of Honor, and Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box.

The American Cancer Society is not the only group that will receive a check from EA. Funds will also go to charities like the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and the American Red Cross. Specific donation amounts, however, are unavailable.
