Amar Karma’s 7th Annual Valentine’s Gala features Umbilical Cord Blood Donation


For years, Team Karma has set milestones by involving families to celebrate Valentine’s Day in a newer way. Once again, on February 4, 2017, Amar Karma Health & Wellness Awareness network is celebrating their 7th annual Give a Heart event at Apollo Convention Center.

Amar Karma is non-profit network, well-connected within the South Asian Community to raise awareness about important subjects that aid in promoting health and wellness in the community.  As Canada’s first South Asian Organization in creating impactful buzz about organ/tissue donation in the past several years, the group now has taken upon more aspects of health and wellness to spread the word about, on behalf of mainstream organizations, so that their message can reach the grassroots. That way, the members of our community can make collective efforts in contributing to a healthy society. 

                    Amar Karma’s giving of heart stands for expression of love for others by being registered Organ & Tissue Donors, Cord Blood Donors, Blood Donors, and Hair Donors, or in other words, by spreading a message of compassion and promoting health & wellness. The legacy of “Give a Heart” initiated by The Karma Network has spread its echo to the masses on social media, making it a movement that speaks to the families at large. On the evening of the event, couples and youngsters come forward to register to be donors and to learn more about other associate organizations that we work closely with.

                      Just like every year, the event has a highlight feature, which is Cord of Love, in support of Victoria Angel Registry of Hope- an organization that works with 33 hospitals to facilitate umbilical cord blood donation. It has been planned to honour parents who have donated umbilical cord blood upon the birth of their babies. Along with Cord of Love feature, the event is enclosed of many fun and meaningful activities for families such as Face Painting for children, Henna Tattoos, Entertainment, Raffles, Prizes, Dinner & Dance, Karma Talents, Volunteer of the Year Award, and networking opportunity with more than 500 guests, and much more. 'Give a Heart' is a legacy! – A legacy to have fun with a noble idea of celebrating and expressing love towards others.                       

The group Karma is recruiting volunteers, accepting sponsorship and donation. A few spots are open for vendors to take advantage of the opportunity to exhibit their business/goods to our guests. Tickets are available at amarkarma.org
