Kind Karma Company was created around giving back! We are a social enterprise that employs at-risk and transitioning homeless youth in Toronto to handcraft quality jewellery. In addition to receiving hourly wages, proceeds from all sales are returned to our youth employees to support their individual goals such as funding post-secondary education, securing permanent housing, or helping with courses for personal and professional development.
We generally keep our community give back quiet due to the privacy of families, however in the spirit of Giving Thanks we wanted to talk a bit about our efforts to create inclusivity within schools.
How do you give back?
I currently volunteer for City Street Outreach providing food, clothing and assistance to the homeless, street-involved youth, seniors, new immigrants, single mothers and individual/families in need and/or living in poverty.
I also volunteer at the Scarborough Bluffs Community Association as a Board member serving the Birchcliff, Cliffside and Cliffcrest communities. I help to organize and lead community building events and centralize and unite the community under a single banner.
