7 Degrees of Karma - We are all connected, spread the kindness. Website - 7degreesofkarma.com
Our Mission - We are all connected, spread the kindness. How many degrees of karma can we spread around the world with each random act of kindness? We want to track how your one random act of kindness can help others and watch the ripple effect as good karma spreads all over the world, and maybe back to you!
How it Works - The Karma Cards purpose is to remind people to do good deeds. When you purchase a card from us, go to the website start a user profile and enter the unique code on the back to start the cards journey. Now the easy part, go out and do something nice for someone. It could be something big like stopping and helping someone with a flat tire, or something small like pay for the person behind you at the drive thru, either way its just good karma!
Once you have signed up for an account, that will give you your own tracking page showing you your information and your cards. Now you can watch where your karma cards go when you pass them on to others and track what your one good deed has done and the stories it has made.
When people get the card we ask them to tell us how they got your card, what did someone do to help them out, how did you feel when you got the card, are you going to pass it on? Now its time for that person to spread the kindness and go do a random act of kindness for someone else, spread the karma!
Remember after doing your act of kindness, don't stop there, continue the karma, spread the kindness, even with out spreading the cards just do more random act of kindness and make this world a kinder place!
Now when you sign in you can watch the ripple effect of your one random act of kindness. Track how many people it has affected, and imagine how many people it can affect in the next 6 months, or the next 6 years?

Risks and challenges
We have a printer and design of the cards already in place once we have the funding they will be ready to go.
The website has been started, but this requires technical skills (i.e., a webmaster) who can develop an effective and accessible website using content-tracking software. The domain name is already purchased, but there will be server costs and development costs. All of this is budgeted, but unexpected setbacks could delay the work.
