United Nations Day: Celebrating Unity, Progress, and the Quest for Global Harmony

Celebrate UN Day with Karma. Explore the history of the UN and its impact on global unity and progress, including developing the Sustainable Development Goals.

October 25, 2023

At Karma, we don't just champion change — we celebrate the institutions that have been at the forefront of global transformation. And in honor of United Nations Day, we’re taking the time to reflect on the history, vision, and ongoing mission of this world-changing organization.

A Journey Back in Time: The Birth of the United Nations

The UN, in essence, was born from the ashes of World War II. After the global conflict, leaders worldwide recognized the dire need for an international organization that would foster cooperation and prevent future wars.

1945: The year the world changed. On October 24th, 1945, the UN Charter was ratified by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council: the USA, UK, USSR, France, and China. The United Nations was officially formed, signaling a new era of international collaboration.

Why "United Nations"? The term was first coined by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1942 when 26 nations pledged to continue fighting against the Axis Powers. The alliance's name beautifully encapsulates its very essence: Unity.

The UN and Sustainable Development Goals: A Beacon for Global Progress

The UN developed the 17 Sustainable Development Goals to address the biggest challenges humanity faces today. From eradicating poverty to ensuring clean water and sanitation for all, these goals represent a global call to action. 

The SDGs were established in 2015, marking a global commitment to ensure a better and more sustainable future for all. Each goal is intertwined, reflecting the complexity of the challenges we face. And at Karma, these goals guide our mission, acting as our compass for a more sustainable world. 

Celebrate UN Day with Purpose

This United Nations Day, let's not just reflect on the progress we've made but also focus on the journey ahead. Here's how you can celebrate with purpose:

Your Karma Card: An Extension of the UN's Vision

Another way to celebrate UN Day? Use your Karma Card. 

Every swipe with your Karma Card or Karmified card doesn't just resonate with the choices you make but with a global vision. Want to ensure quality education for all? There's an SDG – and a plethora of charities – to support that. Passionate about combating climate change? The UN’s SDG 13 is all about taking action against the rising global temperatures.

With each purchase, you're not just a consumer, you’re a global citizen, echoing the principles of the United Nations, and making strides toward a unified, better world.

At Karma, we swipe right on global unity and change. Just as the UN strives to bring nations together to improve the quality of life, we aim to empower individuals to come together to be the catalyst for positive change.

Together, We're Stronger

The UN represents more than just an organization; it stands as a testament to what humanity can achieve when united. As members of the Karma community, we're uniquely positioned to uphold the values of the UN in our daily choices.

This United Nations Day, let's renew our commitment to global cooperation, peace, and sustainability. In the spirit of unity, let’s keep swiping consciously, acting responsibly, and pushing boundaries for a world where every day feels like a celebration of progress.

Looking for an easy way to support the UN’s Sustainable Development goals every day, with every purchase? Join Karma Card today.
