While they may make a game called Cards Against Humanity, the people behind the scenes appear to actually care about humanity—especially their employees.
For example, you may have heard that CAH sold nothing for $5 a pop on Black Friday then gave away the proceeds (which amazingly totaled $71,145) as an employee bonus.
Indeed, CAH is well known for their crazy holiday promotions and philanthropic efforts. Their recent Eight Sensible Gifts for Hannukah promotion certainly fit the mold. Over 150,000 people signed up, and the they used a portion of the proceeds to do something unprecedented for their factory workers in China:
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.

Head on over to the CAH website to check out some of the vacation photos from the staff. Here’s hoping that this paid vacation isn’t a one-time promotional thing and becomes a permanent policy moving forward.
