By all accounts, 2016 appeared to be a hard and tumultuous year. Social media was flooded with posts lamenting one unbelievable moment after another and the overall mood seemed to be sad, bleak and unpromising. But as the saying goes, we should always "be the change we wish to see in the world" and so Kind Karma was established to counter negativity with hope and kindness.
Kind Karma was born on the principle that if we spread good, then good will not only come back to us but will continue to spread.
We spread kindness through our commitment to ethical fashion that gives back, creates opportunity and positivity. By employing at-risk and homeless youth to make beautiful, custom handcrafted jewelry, all Kind Karma pieces have a positive social impact on the Toronto community.
Employment that works.
Jewelry making is uniquely crafty and therapeutic. Many of the young people who work with us may be healing from trauma or dealing with various mental health challenges. Often this makes committing to shift work, set hours or providing customer service particularly challenging. For this reason, traditional employment for at-risk and transitioning homeless youth can be difficult to acquire and retain.
At Kind Karma, we are happy to provide a flexible working environment which allows young people to work at a pace that suits their needs.
Our youths receive profits from each sale which enables and empowers them to seize better opportunities for a brighter future. Whether they choose to pursue an education, establish their independence or take a course related to their calling, each youth has a goal that Kind Karma helps them achieve. It is truly our belief that if we give youths the opportunity to better themselves, they will grow up to become positive influences in society with the ability to pay kindness forward by helping others in need.
Jewelry that gives back!
There is so much that we cannot control in the world but we can control how we treat each other. Amidst all the chaos of natural disasters, divisive politics and incomprehensible tragedies, nothing shines brighter than a little kindness and we hope you will help us spread that positivity with your support.
Thank you for visiting!
