Comfy and practical, college students love to wear t-shirts. With this basis, the University of the Philippines' Industrial Engineering Club (IE Club) initiated and in collaboration with other universities and colleges in Metro Manila launched recently a noteworthy and noble project called Good Karma. It aims to create awareness among the youth that they can help solve problems of the society in a simple way – wear Good Karma T-shirts and send a good vibe message.

Good Karma (GK) T-Shirts (white, red, blue, and green) colors correspond to a certain community problem will be sold to college students and for those who will support its advocacy. Profit from the purchase of GK white shirts will be for the scholarship program of Kristiyano-Islam (KRISLAM) Peace Library in Zamboanga and Metro Manila, and the GK red shirts will be for the Kabataang Inyong Dapat Suportahan (K.I.D.S.) Foundation's medical and financial assistance to young patients of public hospitals. While the sales of blue shirts will be for the Save Philippine Seas' legal efforts to conserve Philippine aquatic resources, and the GK green shirts aims to support reforestation program of the Haribon Foundation.

Along with this cause, the group took an extensive campaign featuring the Faces of Good Karma. They tapped popular college students who are well-known achievers in their respective fields to represent Good Karma and their universities. They hail from the University of the Philippines (UP), the Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU), the University of Asia & the Pacific (UA&P), the Universidad de Santo Tomas (UST), the College of San Beda, and the De La Salle University (DLSU). It will send the message that if these achievers have excelled in their respective fields, why can’t the Filipino youth excel in the field of making a change?

Furthermore, they are also partnering with student organizations from the above universities who are aiding them in promoting  and selling GK shirts. They include ADMU's Ateneo Environmental Science Society, UA&P's ER+GO, and UST's Junior Pharmacists' Association - Gamma Chapter.

Good Karma's main message for the youth: start small but start now.  It is God Karma's highest objective to deliver the infectious message to all youth that a little is a lot, and that even one shirt can save a country. Good Karma does not just sell shirts. It also moves people.
