"Good Karma Networks build trust between neighbourhood strangers, forming relationships that flow from the newsfeed of our group, to the streets of our suburb and the hearts of our people."
With the purpose of being a safe place to ask for help from the community, and a model that removes judgement and negativity, the Good Karma Networks facilitate meaningful connections between neighbours.
Closely managed by trained groups of volunteers, Good Karma Networks are designed to be a safe place for people to ask for help, and allow for neighbours to provide that assistance. Good Karma Networks help people realise they can make a difference in the lives of those who live around them, increasing their desire to engage with each other. Fostering a culture of positivity and compassion, Good Karma Networks use social media to connect people in ways that promote human wellbeing.
Principles of the Good Karma Network
Connection, Compassion and Collaboration
- Asking for help - Invites trust and the opportunity for greater connection.
- A culture of positive online engagement - We believe that positivity is fundamental to meaningful connections and contributes to feeling of belonging.
- Solution focused - We all have challenges from time to time; and between us, we have plenty of knowledge, skills, experience and resources to share.
- Non-transactional - No expectation of anything in return inspires a spirit of generosity.
- Zero tolerance for judgment, disrespect and negative contributions - We understand that negative contributions, judgment, and assumptions alienate people and are not helpful, therefore not welcome.
- Collective responsibility for culture - Together we can achieve much more.
- Personal responsibility for our engagement - Pause and reflect on the effect of our actions on others.
Solution focused collaborative problem solving builds connected, resilient and resourceful communities!
