Karma Kitchen

I had the privilege of meeting Nipun Mehta when he came to do a tedx talk in Guernsey. Nipun is creates volunteer-driven experiments in generosity and has been recognised for his charity work throughout the world and praised by many including the Dalai Lama and Barack Obama.

Inspired by his visit, Hotel Ziggurat and the Dandelion Project decided to create one of Nipun’s initiatives, the Karma Kitchen. They asked me to get involved with coming up with a logo and advert for the event.

Here’s the big idea…

Imagine a restaurant where there are no prices on the menu and where the check reads $0.00 with only this footnote: “Your meal was a gift from someone who came before you. To keep the chain of gifts alive, we invite you to pay it forward for those who dine after you.”
That’s Karma Kitchen, a volunteer-driven experiment in generosity. Find out more about Karma Kitchen here  

Eventually with the money raised, free meals are given to those in difficult domestic situations who might not normally be able to afford to eat out themselves.

The event was a big success and more Karma Kitchen’s are planned in the future.

Another one of Nipun’s projects, which I helped with in Guernsey, is the kindness protect.

Also, I’d highly recommend Nipun’s talk on generosity. You’ll find it to the right after the images…
