WDC’s work receives a huge boost from leading software company

WDC’s work to keep whales and dolphins safe and free from the many threats they face has received a huge boost this week – an unbelievable donation of almost $250k from Humble Bundle and software company, Magix.

The bundles are discounted packages of games or software offered to the public in exchange for a donation. From April 11th, Humble Bundle ran a special deal on their website offering customers the chance to buy a ‘bundle’ of Magix’s top photo and music editing software titles at a hugely reduced price, with a proportion of the proceeds supporting WDC.

WDC partnerships manager, Abbie Cheesman, said: “We were so delighted to be chosen as a charity partner by the team at Magix and were astounded by the donation that we’ve received from the sales of the Bundle.

“The continued support from partners like Magix and Humble Bundle, and the amazing generosity of their customers is having a huge positive impact on our conservation work and campaigns, including helping to end the cruel practice of keeping whales and dolphins in captivity and tackling the new threat of plastic pollution. I speak for every member of staff and every volunteer here at WDC when I say we really can’t thank them enough.”
