“Cards Against Humanity” Gives Out $1000 Checks To Their Lowest-Earning Customers

With Christmas around the corner and it being all about giving and love, the makers of Cards Against Humanity had a brilliant idea to redistribute their fans’ wealth. Last month, 150,000 people paid Cards Against Humanity $15 to help the company focus on wealth inequality. The creators of the party game took some money from rich customers and redistributed it to people who need it more. They gave 10,000 people a $15 refund and 100 people, using a demographic questions and Census data to see who are their poorest customers, a check for $1,000.

Sounds like a real-life Robin Hood story. Some fans received the amazing surprise and a letter, while their richest clients received a very different letter in the mail – one notifying them that the $15 they donated helped pay for it all. “Giving 100 people $1,000 doesn’t fix wealth inequality,” the company wrote on its site. “But we think these stories are a clear demonstration of how much $1,000 means to someone struggling to pay for basic necessities.”

“Dear Citizen,
In order to deliver on our promise to save America, we knew we needed to tackle our country’s biggest issue: wealth inequality. The richest 0.1% of Americans have as much wealth as the bottom 90%.
Our lawyers wouldn’t let us pursue our first choice – a campaign to eat all the rich people and live in their houses – so we settled for something more achievable. Today, Cards Against Humanity has redistributed everyone’s wealth.
We’ve got some good news and some bad news. Let’s start with the bad: according to the survey you filled out when you signed up for CAH Saves America, you are one of the poorest 100 recipients. Now for the good news: you’re getting a check for $1,000, paid for by everyone else. Yes, the check is real, and you can actually cash it. To read more about other people who got $1,00, check out CardsAgainstHumanityRedistributesYourWealth.com.
I love you,
Cards Against Humanity
P.S. The next 10,000 poorest recipients got a $15 refund check. But who cares about them.”
