So, once I finally got word that Cards Against Humanity was FINALLY back in stock, I snagged it off Amazon faster than you can say Austral Pygmy Owl. They also released a Holiday Expansion Pack, which allowed buyers to name their price. They said they cost $3 to make, but suggested price was $5. I snagged a set, because I saw that one of the cards said "Elf cum," + lets be real - how could I say no to that?
Well, what I didn't know was what the creators of Cards Against Humanity planned on doing with the profits they made from the Holiday Expansion Pack. I received an email today, telling us how the Holiday Expansion Pack sales fared + how they decided to spend the money. After reading the link included in the email, I soon realized how they decided to spend the profits + gasped. This video is at the end of the email, but I wanted to put it on here in case you didn't feel like clicking the links.
Dude, this might be one of the coolest things I have seen in quite some time. I use Wikipedia on a daily basis, whether it be for academia or general information [note: regarding academia, I do not quote information on Wikipedia, but I do check the sources they utilized, to see if it is appropriate for what I am working on]. Erich + I were actually discussing making a donation to the Wikimedia Foundation [they operate Wikipedia + other Wiki projects] after the holidays. We still plan on donating, because we enjoy giving back to those who give to us!
Now, as for Cards Against Humanity, I plan on supporting them to the fullest, after this awesome act on their part - they could have used those funds for new projects or holiday bonuses, but decided to donate it to something the utilize on the regular. I still need to snag the First Expansion + Second Expansion, which will have to wait til after the holidays, but I also plan on giving the gift of Cards Against Humanity throughout the year [if it isn't sold out, which happens often]. I believe in giving back to good folks,
Update: If you looked on Wikipedia to figure out what an Austral Pygmy Owl was, let me know! ;-)
