This story is part of War in Ukraine, CNET's coverage of events there and of the wider effects on the world.

Online retailer Humble Bundle has announced a $40 bundle of games and ebooks, called Stand with Ukraine, with 100% donated to humanitarian relief efforts.

The bundle is truly massive and includes great PC games such as Back 4 Blood, Slay the Spire, Satisfactory and Metro Exodus. Even if you have some of these titles already there's plenty more to choose from, with Humble putting the bundle's total value at $2,572. Also included are RPG rulebooks including Pathfinder, Starfinder and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, as well as the graphic novel The Incal, which is soon to be made into a movie by director Taika Waititi.

As I write this, the bundle has raised over $1.3 million for the charities Razom for Ukraine, International Rescue Committee, International Medical Corps and Direct Relief in just a few hours. 

On Feb. 24 Russia invaded the Ukraine, resulting in millions of refugees fleeing the country. The  US, EU and UK have imposed economic sanctions on Russia, including ones aimed directly at Russian President Vladimir Putin.
