Cards Against Humanity, rather infamous for its mildly offensive card game, shared an open letter to its website for the holiday season that pulls on all the heart strings.

"This year, 150,000 people signed up to receive Eight Sensible Gifts for Hannukah from us.

Like many of the physical products we buy, most of these gifts were made in China. This is something a lot of companies don't like to draw attention to, and as a result Americans often don't see the labor that goes into the things they buy. But we've always viewed the way our stuff is made as a part of who we are.

Our printer in China has grown with us from a small business to a huge operation, and it's important to us to go above and beyond our obligation to the workers who make our game. While our factory provides excellent wages and working conditions, Chinese working conditions are generally more strict. This year, we used the money from one day of our holiday promotion to give our workers something very uncommon in China: a paid vacation.

The printer didn't have any formal procedures for paid vacations, so we bought 100% of the factory's capacity and paid them to produce nothing for a week, giving the people who make Cards Against Humanity an unexpected chance to visit family or do whatever they pleased.

This doesn't undo the ways that all of us profit from unfair working conditions around the world, but it's a step in the right direction. Below yo'll find some thank-you notes and vacation photos from that factory staff shared with us."

If you're the kind of person who impulse buys a good deal on Black Friday without really seeing what you're getting, you may have just bought a whole lot of nothing from Cards Against Humanity. Then again, you were probably also one of the more than 30,000 people who bought actual poop from them last Black Friday.

Cards Against Humanity, the troll kings of Black Friday, are offering a special $5 deal on absolutely nothing! As in, you give them five dollars and get nothing back. Apparently they've also closed real sales of their product today, which has at least one former-fan pretty furious:



Something tells me that if this stunt was enough to turn this guy off of CAH, he probably wouldn't have enjoyed the game to begin with.

After raising more than $70,000 through a pay-what-you-want holiday expansion pack, the company behind the politically incorrect card game Cards Against Humanity chose to donate 100 percent of their profits to the Wikimedia Foundation.
