What are the best charities to donate to?
Posted On July 13, 2021
The charity Good Karma, a charitable group, recently announced a new fundraising campaign to help the homeless.
The charity has teamed up with Amazon to donate $1 million worth of Amazon products to Good Karma.
In addition to a $50 Amazon gift card, Good Karma will donate $50 to Good Charity.
The Good Karma team is also donating $1,000 worth of Good Karma merchandise to local homeless shelters and the Salvation Army.
“We are excited to support Good Karma in their mission to help people in need, which is supported by our generous Amazon customers,” said Good Karma CEO Ben Miller.
The charity has also donated $10,000 to the Salvation Arm, which helps the homeless in New York.
The Salvation Arm recently announced the acquisition of Good Charity and Good Karma brands to support the organization’s mission.
The companies have also announced an agreement to partner up to donate one million Good Karma and one million Amazon items to the Good Charity in the next year.
The charities partnership with Amazon has not been without controversy.
Good Karma has been criticized for donating a significant portion of its sales to Walmart.
“The vast majority of the money that Good Karma donated went to Walmart and not Good Charity,” said Gary Gensler, a former president of the New York Salvation Army who now heads the nonprofit Good Karma Foundation.
“Good Karma has not provided a consistent and fair return to charity.”
In recent months, Good karma has faced criticism over its handling of its charity partners.
A report by the National Review criticized the charity’s handling of the distribution of its donations.
“Bad karma is good karma, and bad karma is bad karma,” wrote Charles Hurt, who runs the blog.
“I’m sick and tired of Good karma giving bad karma to good people.”
A spokesperson for Good Karma declined to comment on the latest Good Karma partnership, but did confirm that it is working on a new charitable partnership with another group.
“Amazon and Good Charity have teamed up to give Good Karma a gift of $1.5 million of Amazon merchandise to Good Charities in the first quarter of 2020,” the spokesperson said.
