As much as I respect developers for feeding my hobby, I don't give them any money at all when I spend on Humble Bundles. Developers get my support all year round anyway, so with HB I send it all to charity.
It's very easy to look up the charities the Humble Bundle supports. They're both incredibly well respected. The EFF are one of the main parties helping us fight against stupid internet/copyright restrictions like SOPA and if you don't trust handing money directly to Child's Play, you can actually just go to their Amazon wishlist and buy toys for children directly.
