Humble and Yogscast have already raised more $3m in Jingle Jam charity event

The Yogscast and Humble Bundle charity team-up Jingle Jam has already broken records less than a week into the event.

The duo have raised $3m already, beating the $2.5m accumulated last year. There are just under three weeks left to go, also, so expect that figure to grow somewhat by December 25th.

The Jingle Jam sees members of the Yogscast YouTube network taking part in a live-stream with money from the bundle on Humble. This sets consumers back $35; some games are available from the outset, with additional titles being added every day.

So far, Rust. Garry's Mod, Gunpoint, Teslagrad and Warhammer Vemintide 2 Beta Access are in the deal, with another 20 titles yet to be added.

Charities benefitting from the Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal, Mental Health Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Whale and Dolphin Conservation, Special Effect, Save the Children, and International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association.

We're not in the habit of linking out to storefronts because it's not a great look, but in this case, we are going to do. Go here, give these good causes $35 of your hard-earned cash. Now.
