Pay It Forward with Karma Krew Do Good Things Cards!

  

The Do Good Things campaign is as simple as it sounds.

Do Good Things.

Think of these cards as your reminders. It’s simple.

Step 1: Donate $1 in exchange for a Do Good Things card at your local yoga studio

Step 2: Perform an act of kindness and leave a DGT card behind

Step 3: When the recipient of your deed sees the card, they’ll know it’s their turn to “pay it forward.” As simple as that a new thread of kindness has been born!

Don’t Break the Chain!

Karma Krew, Inc. is a national non-profit, charitable organization whose mission, with your help, is to infuse the world with more positive energy by promoting acts of kindness, service, and community outreach in its many forms.

The Community Karma Krew Initiative seeks to break down the barriers between different studios in the community and establish new opportunities for yogis from all styles and lineages to come together with the intention of serving the greater good. 

Here’s how it works: 

Each month, LI Karma Krew organizes either a Simple Seva Campaign or Karma Community Project as an opportunity for yoga students from all area studios to get involved in a community-based outreach initiative to address a specific social issue within their community.

Ways you can be involved (either every month or on selected months): 

*Simple Seva Campaigns are non-project oriented outreach efforts such as studio collection drives 

*Karma Community Projects, which are offered at least once per season, are gatherings for more traditional community service projects such as volunteering at soup kitchens, and decorating a children’s shelters for the holidays. During Karma Community Projectsparticipating studios are encouraged to offer other yoga practices alongside the service work like asana class (taught by a different teacher from a different lineage each time) and satsang (group share) to integrate the day’s events into one’s regular practice and understanding of yoga. Please know that Karma Krew is for everyone, not just for people who “practice yoga.” Everyone is welcome!
