Cards Against Humanity has done some strange, but incredible things over the years. For their holiday campaign this year, the card game is trying to prevent President Donald Trump from building a wall to separate Mexico and the United States. They raised money and bought a block of land along with eminent domain lawyers to try and delay building the wall as long as possible.
Is that going to stop the wall from being built? No. But that’s really secondary to some of the things they have done with the $1.5 million they raised in this campaign. Some things include giving the 100 poorest people who paid $15 into the campaign $1,000, funding a daily podcast that focuses on good news to help even out all the bad news we get, funding a new public survey service and matching donations for teachers to plan enjoyable and creative activities and field trips for their students.
For the sixth and final day of their “Cards Against Humanity Saves America” campaign, they try to save the American Pastime that is baseball. And in true Cards Against Humanity fashion, they bought the naming rights to the Joliet Slammers minor league baseball team in Illinois.
For Day Six of Cards Against Humanity Saves America, we purchased the naming rights to a minor league baseball stadium in Joliet, Illinois. Kindly remove your caps and stand for The Cards Against Humanity Baseball Place, the new home of the Joliet Slammers! Subscribers got a blueprint of the stadium, a pack of baseball cards, and a ticket voucher. America has been saved. I love you.
The game is going all out with signage around the stadium and will be giving people a pack of baseball cards with funny stats on each of the players and a voucher to go to a game. The Joliet Slammers is getting some great national publicity. Sure, the origins of the campaign is political and that could backfire but the majority will either love this or won’t have it affect the team.
