Karma Mission

Our Karma Mission have no political agenda or association, and is not part of any organization. We are only one of the many local individuals contributors / small group of citizens, who are using funds from their own pockets to pay for these Karma missions with: a simple goal of creating a better world.

Here are some of our recent Karma Missions

Everyone deserves to feel good and beautiful.

These professional hair stylists rented a bus with their own money, drove overnight to the village, hand out care packages and then offered FREE haircuts to anyone in the village.

Give hope through a human touch or bringing care packages to a senior’s home who has no family, and in many cases may be bedridden. Tell them that their company still matters or simply listen to their life stories.

Visiting villages that been effected by Agent Orange from the Vietnam War and are still affecting this generation. This 15-year-old boy is under-developed, bedridden and can’t walk. He’s living in constant fear that his family will abandon him at any minute, like so many other families have done. In this video, I was talking to the mother and telling him how handsome he is as he was becoming shy.

#KarmaNinja Challenge: Week 11

#Karma Ninja Challenge: do 3 random acts of kindness within the next 7 days.

Kindness is contagious.
When we’re kind, we inspire others to be kind, and it actually creates a ripple effect that spreads outwards to our friends’ friends’ friends — to three degrees of separation.
~ New England Journal of Medicine

Kindness Ideal: Help clean / decorate a friend home, create a love experience for your family, give a stranger 15min of your time.

#DiscoHelmetTO

Smile, making connection
in the urbaner jungle.

Disco Helmet Project’s back in Toronto for the 3rd years, a social experiment connecting urbaner together and sharing smiles.

Cutting through the veil of electronic distractions that surround us. We can consciously choose to make technology visible or transparent and by doing so out of choice, we empower and bring ourselves into the present moment. The project creates an experience for the audience to develop ideas and explore their inner selves. The presence of the artist wearing the helmet with an air of radical honesty and sincerity adds to the aesthetics. Nothing says tackling the urban jungle while living in the city like a disco helmet!

Adam Quang is an award winning interdisciplinary artist whose work explores human nature and plausibility in contemporary society; pieces that stroke the visual and tactile senses, that touch the heart, and hinge on the duality of his life spent in Asia and North America. In a mass market versus mass marketing framework, Adam’s art stirs our imagination through image and metaphor, shadow and hidden meaning within. He provokes action from the viewer and invites them to be part of the evolving art. He is the founder of  World Karma Project. Its mission is to make you and the people around you “awesome.” Adam currently lives in Toronto Canada.

World Please Save Vietnam Trees

#WorldSaveVNtrees

HaiNoi city are cutting down 6,700 100-years-old Trees that were planted during colonial rule.
Share and let your friend and the world know, your voice can save these beautiful 6700 Century-Old Trees.
A Facebook page titled 6,700 people for 6,700 trees, attracted over 50,000 “likes” in 2 days.

Will this be another sad “Anteater” story for Vietnam? Northern province sells rescued wildlife to restaurants, angers environmentalists / thanhniennews.com

‘What an irony it is that these living beings whose shade we sit in, whose fruit we eat, whose limbs we climb, whose roots we water, to whom most of us rarely give a second thought, are so poorly understood. We need to come, as soon as possible, to a profound understanding and appreciation for trees and forests and the vital role they play, for they are among our best allies in the uncertain future that is unfolding.’ Jim Robbins
