2020 has been a tough year for a lot of people and has provided unique challenges for a lot of charities.
Karmagawa wanted to do our part and help some charities we believe in, so Karmagawa co-founder, Tim Sykes, traveled around the U.S. last month, dressed as Santa Clause to surprise some hard-working charities with holiday gifts and donations.

We’re so proud that we’re able to donate $340,000 to these amazing animal sanctuaries and nonprofits. These donations were made possible partly because of the support we receive when you buy our merchandise — so thanks!
