The Golden Karma Awards provide a nationally televised forum to recognize
the philanthropic actions of celebrities and nationally known individuals
as positive behaviors for others to emulate. In addition, at least two non-celebrity,
"ordinary" individuals who have shown extraordinary selflessness will also be honored, with
an Award presentation by a nationally recognized personality.
In the case of nationally known personalities who receive the Award, they typically have
earned national recognition in the fields of
entertainment or sports AND are role models who exemplify extraordinary
commitment to public service and social responsibility by having voluntarily
contributed support in the form of time, money and/or the use of their name, for
the betterment of their local or national or global community. These are people
who, when it comes to philanthropy and selflessness, would be worthy role models
to be emulated by others.
