Good Karma Sale

This holiday, a percentage of all sales is being donated to start a new library and health center in Cameroon. Never underestimate how a small group of dedicated people can make a lasting change. 

In July 2015, we traveled to Cameroon, Africa to see our fundraising in action. After a fifteen hour bus ride through the mountains, we landed at The Himalayan Institute Cameroon. Their effort to understand the needs of the community and introduce thoughtful change was truly inspiring. The success of the library and health center combination has led them to new expansion of this model throughout the region.

It was profound to witness the respect the locals had for learning; the library was in constant use, always silent, and people walk for days to visit it. This is the first thing of its kind in the whole area. Paired with a health center and health education, the impact is massive.

The holidays are infamous for stirring a frenzy of expectations around Black Friday / Small Business Saturday / Cyber Monday. In years past, it was a weekend that left me feeling disconnected and conflicted. Sure, more sales, but in the end it was an unfulfilling version of what the holidays are "all about".

I came up with a solution that supports biz owners while inspiring more meaning in the midst of holiday consumption. For the second year, The Wild Unknown offered a site-wide discount to our customers, and let them know that a percentage of our sales were being donated to a non-profit cause. We called it a “GOOD KARMA SALE” and the response was amazing. So, this year, I challenged others to join in and our reach was epic, nearly 200 stores, brands, and designers heeded the call. Stay tuned to find out just how much money was raised.
