‘Cards Against Humanity’ Sends Checks To Their Lowest-Earning Customers And It’s Bringing Attention To Wealth Inequality

0 26

‘Cards Against Humanity’ has just verified itself to be, truly, one of the most ‘humane’ companies out there. In a truly Robin Hood-inspired move, they’ve ‘redistributed’ various sums of money to their lowest-earning customers, all at the cost of those earning the most. So, how did they pull it off?

Last month, the bold game-makers asked their faithful fans to donate $15 in order to help them buy a piece of land spanning the U.S.-Mexico border, which would momentously complicate Donald Trump’s future attempts to build a wall across it. They called it ‘Cards Against Humanity Saves America.’

Turns out, they’re saving the nation in more ways than one by undertaking an even bigger issue – discrimination of wealth.

Using a portion of the cash they received, and going off inobtrusive data they collected from donors, they’ve mailed $1000 checks to 100 customers who they believed to be their ‘poorest,’ and have refunded a further 10,000 the original $15 they offered. Their richest clients, however, received a very different letter in the mail, one notifying them that the $15 they donated helped pay for it all.

Take a look below to see how the campaign is unfolding, and let us know if you’ve received any letters from the folks at ‘Cards.’

100 lucky ‘Cards Against Humanity’ customers just found a check in their mail

And here’s a letter that came with it

“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.

I love you,

Cards Against Humanity

P.S. The next 10,000 poorest recipients got a $15 refund check. But who cares about them.

Others received a refund of the original $15 (base donation) they gave to the company

A large majority of people, however, received this letter, which perfectly explains it all

“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 your wealth.

Using the survey you filled out when you signed up, we identified the 100 poorest recipients and sent them each a check for $1,000. To see how this $1,000 is impacting these people’s lives, read their stories at CardsAgainstHumanityRedistributesYourWealth.com. The next 10,000 poorest recipients got a $15 refund check.

You got nothing. And if you don’t like it, tough titties.

I love you,

Cards Against Humanity”

Here’s the letter they wrote to one lucky recipient of a refund check:

The next 10,000 poorest recipients, including you, got a $15 refund check. You deserve more than this, but from your political representatives – not from a comedy game.

I love you,

Cards Against Humanity”

“We think these stories are a clear demonstration of how much $1,000 means to someone struggling to pay for basic necessities”

Here’s how the company planned the ‘wealth redistribution’ based on data they collected from donors

It’s a part of a CAH’s anti-Trump campaign that aims to promote financial equality and ‘truly save America’

As you might have guessed, the Internet had something to say as well
