Cards Against Humanity Donates More Than $100,000 to Public Schools
Cards Against Humanity
Cards Against Humanity is "a party game for horrible people," according to the game's website. Despite this pedigree, they raised and donated more than $100,000 to public schools this holiday season.

Not bad for a game in which answers can include "drinking alone" and "eating the last known bison."

For those of you who haven't had the pleasure, the game's concept is simple: Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and the other players answer with their funniest white card.
