About this project

Last Update 2/18/Pm: additional rewards and stretch goals announced. (See Below)

KARMA CARDS
Cards to help spread karma into the world, recognizing others for good deeds.  This is a simple project, with a small goal, and will spread some good spirits into the Karma world and initiate fun and friendly conversation.

Karma is everywhere.  People do good deeds everyday. This is a small way you can show recognition. Simply pass them along a 'Good Karma' card. The Goal is to make someone smile.        

But, in order to keep the Karma World balanced, We must also recognize bad deeds, and pass bad karma too. For those moments, you can pass along a 'Bad Karma' card. Just a gentle reminder when someone is being a pain.        

We offer 3 different packs of Karma Cards in a variety of sizes.

MIXED KARMA PACK - If you prefer to keep a balanced Karma World, we have a Mixed Pack, with 5 'Good Karma' Cards and 4 'Bad Karma' Cards.

GOOD KARMA PACK - If you prefer to pass along Good Karma, we have a Good Karma Pack

BAD KARMA PACK - If you prefer to keep balance in the Karma World with a pack of Bad Karma Cards, we have a pack for you as well.

ALL DONORS receive their name in our Karma Club as Founding Members on our website, www.KarmaTheCard.com.  This is an honor that will only be bestowed upon kickstarter backers. 

This is a Limited-Edition run of Karma Cards for kickstarter. Each will have the text 'Series 1' on the cards.  (Series 1 will have Orange Backs. We will also offer our regular series on white backs, for those backers that prefer a less colorful Karma experience).

 All Cards are printed on premium glossy postcard stock.  2x3"
