    NECN

    Cards Against Humanity has purchased a 6-acre private island in Maine and is doling out 1-square-foot parcels to participants in its holiday fundraising campaign.

    The Portland Press Herald reports the game-maker bought Birch Island in St. George Lake for about $200,000. They renamed it Hawaii 2.

    The company says on its blog that it joked a couple of years ago that it could have bought a small private island with the money it donated to charity. So this year, it did.

    The company sent certificates to about 250,000 participants in a holiday fundraising campaign granting each of them license to 1 foot of the island. The campaign is dubbed "Ten Days or Whatever of Kwanzaa."

    Cards Against Humanity is a card game based around humor, pop-culture references, sexual innuendo and profanity.
