Ken and Darlene created AmazingKarma.com around the non-religious concept, “What goes around, comes around.” They share what prompted them to come up with this unique website, social media and mobile app.
Sometimes it seems like the world is caught in an endless cycle of acrimony and retribution. From wars and terrorist attacks to petty slights and insults that explode into full-blown disputes and destroy relationships, bad behavior seems to reign. Yet you don’t have to look far to find people who practice kindness and intentionally work to sow peace, friendship and goodwill.
That’s the intention of Darlene and Ken Tipton, aka “Karma Dar” and “Karma Ken.” The California couple created AmazingKarma.com around the simple non-religious concept of “What goes around, comes around.” Marketing surveys show that over 180 million Americans believe in this Karma concept. 67% of women, 46% of men, and 73% of the LGBT community are true believers.
AmazingKarma.com acknowledges acts of kindness, courtesy, and honesty, through the giving of Green Karma Cards. It exposes acts of unkindness, discourtesy, and dishonesty, through the giving of Red Karma Cards. Even though the two types of Karma Cards are given for different reasons, BOTH types of Karma Cards are treated the same way when they are registered in your free account.
When a Karma Card is registered, it generates a positive Karma Point for that person and ALSO for EVERY person who registered the same Karma Card in the past. When someone receives and registers a Red Karma Card, it is assumed the person has “owned their actions” and taken personal responsibility for their bad behavior. If they haven’t, then Karma WILL pay them a visit.
