Karma Currency – Charity Gift Vouchers – Advertorial
Friday, 14th December 2007 at 2:39 pm

In an age of global warming and environmental concern many Australian companies and their staff are beginning to question the ten of millions of dollars frittered away on promotional pens, clocks, bags and wine coolers as a means to reward their staff and stakeholders.

But imagine a gift that could feed a child, rescue an animal, protect our rainforests, educate a mind, help find cures for cancer, aid the arts or perform countless other worthwhile wonderful acts. Look no further, we’ve come up with a solution that will do all of the above and it’s called karma currency.

The way karma currency works is simple. Companies simply gift the vouchers to their stakeholders and employees who are then directed back to the site to give the donation to the charity closest to their heart. They can give to Care, Plan, ACF, World Vision, Vision Australia, WSPA, The Cancer Council and over 100 other top charities. The company gets the tax deduction, the staff get to feel engaged and empowered and a part of the giving process and the charities get much needed funds.

In short; our aim is to make karma currency the most soulful, meaningful and enjoyable gift, one that keeps on giving. And by engaging your stakeholders in the giving process, you are sending them a clear message that their wants, needs and interests are important to you and your organization

The karma currency Foundation is a Not for Profit online social venture with DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient) status. And we’re a lot like you. We’re a hard working group of people dedicated to making charitable acts part of our everyday lives. Our mission is to increase charitable giving by connecting people with the charities and causes that are dear to their hearts, whether it is starving children in Africa or a soup kitchen down the street. The karma currency Foundation is paving the way forward in good gift giving.

How much of the gift voucher gets to the charities? 100% of the value of the gift voucher reaches the chosen charity. We achieve this by charging the gift giver a small processing fee of $4.95.

What happens to vouchers that are not redeemed? To ensure that monies are passed on gift givers must choose a ‘default’ charity where money will be directed if the voucher is not redeemed within a 12 month period.

Who are our partners? karma currency is sponsored by the National Australia Bank (NAB), and the DMG (NOVA) Network and has been granted pro bono assistance from Corrs Chambers Westgath, WHK Horwath and Nicholas Weston Trade Marks Attorney.
