The Karma Jar Charity Program: Everything You Need To Know

The Karma Jar Concept

The Karma Jar program arose from the question, “How can we work together with patients to make a continuous impact in our local community?” The concept is simple. Choose a local charity every month that patients can donate their spare change to, and deliver that money to the charity at the end of each month. The impact, however, can be huge.

Our very first local beneficiary, Pet’s on Wheels, received just over $1,300 during the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. The lengths our patients will go to help those in need, even in difficult times, is humbling. As the number of patients we see increases, so should the amount raised every month. It’s exciting to watch this program grow, along with the impact it will make.

We’re always looking for other ways to give back to the local community as well! If you know of anything going on in your neighborhood that we could help with, do let us know. We always love connecting with new people and organizations.

Never hesitate to ask who we’re donating to every month! Our patient care advisors are always happy to fill you in on the details. Together we can make a difference in the local community.

June Karma Jar beneficiary

We’re excited to have House of Ruth Maryland as a our Karma Jar Beneficiary for the month of June! All Karma Jar donations made in June will be designated to this amazing charity.

Financial donations are the best way to provide immediate help to the women and children who are in need of urgent support. When victims of domestic violence show up at House of Ruth, they come with very little, other than their children and their lives. House of Ruth Maryland provides the food, shelter, counseling, legal and other services that will ensure their continued survival.

It’s​ ​not​ ​a​ ​small​ ​undertaking,​ ​especially​ ​since​ ​police​ ​estimate​ ​that​ ​there​ ​are​ ​more​ ​than​ ​200,000 incidents​ ​of​ ​domestic​ ​abuse​ ​in​ ​Maryland​ ​each​ ​year.​ ​Your​ ​generosity​ ​makes​ ​their ​work​ ​possible,​ ​and​ ​in return​ ​they​ ​work​ ​very​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​every​ ​dollar​ ​you​ ​give​ ​makes​ ​a​ ​real​ ​difference​ ​in​ ​the​ ​lives​ ​of  battered​ ​women​ ​and​ ​their​ ​children.
