The problems of the world are not going to be solved by governments, corporations or religions, but by people around the world working together as one, with a common focus that is consistent, persistent and insistent in its scope.
Each day Karma Club members all over the world will wake up and on their cell phones, computers and devices, there is a daily Planned Act of Kindness that they can do with their family, friends, co-workers and in their community.
The goal is to have tens of millions of people doing the same thing on the same day, and unleashing that much powerful, positive energy into world. And because many problems take more than one day to effect change, we have the Cause of the Month as well.
So again, we ask you to volunteer and add your efforts to the chorus of activists that embrace all segments of society, as we strive to create the peace and harmony that will give balance to world, and bring happiness and longevity to its children.

Things to Know: Our programs are designed to help everyone regardless of age, gender, race, country of origin, religion, education or income.

Empowered by the Karma Constitution, The Karma Club works to provide outreach and transformative actions for Quality of Life for All.
