When we last left MacHeist… it was inching its way toward an amazing USD$100,000 collected for charity. Well, since then, it has trampled that measly hundred grand, surpassed a quarter million (yes, USD$250,000) and has set its sights in the goal of USD$300,000.
When you purchase a MacHeist bundle for $49, 25% of that purchase price gets slated for donation to one or all of a list of charities. Obviously, the more bundles sold, the more money that gets donated, but that’s not the only benefit.
To “make it worth your while” the Heisters have bumped the app count of the bundle from 10 to 14–IF they reach the goal of raising $300,000 for charity (if they, don’t, you still get 13 apps). Added to the bundle are Tiki Magic Mini Golf, Wingnuts 2 and Speed Download. With these applications added to the previous ten, the combined value of the bundle works out to USD$498.60–that’s more than ten times what you’re paying for it. Once $300,000 has been raised for charity, VectorDesigner will be added to the list to complete the 14 app bundle.
As I post this, there are only 3 days remaining to get in on this deal. Go buy a bundle!!
