All of the profit goes to people in crisis.
In August 2018, the largest and strongest earthquake to have hit Lombok in recorded history. Officials stated that at least 80% of structures in North Lombok were damaged or destroyed. In response to this crisis MyRedEnvelope started working with Project Karma to raise funds for emergency housing. By November, we started selling big red umbrellas to help raise funds for temporary housing that was urgently needed to get families through the wet season. With 100% of the profit going to charity, 50 umbrellas would raise enough funds for one temporary home for a family in Lombok. By January 2019, we had raised enough for 6 shelters which were then quickly built by Project Karma’s team in Lombok.
MyRedEnvelope will continue to run our SHELTER program and direct any funds that are raised through the ongoing sale of umbrellas to people in crisis.
Umbrellas available with company logo!
For an additional charge of Rp 10,000 per umbrella, your company logo can be printed on 4 panels of the big red umbrella. Minimum order applies.
Big thank you to the businesses, individuals and groups who donated urgently needed funds so that emergency shelters for six families were able to be built in partnership with Project Karma in early 2019, on the earthquake devastated island of Lombok.
You really have made a difference to these families in Lombok.
During December and January Project Karma was chosen as My Red Envelope’s “Charity of the Month”.
We worked with Project Karma on their Lombok Temporary Shelter Project in partnership with TUGU Hotels, and Yayasan Team Action Amed . They received promotion and publicity during the campaign, reaching Australia and concluding with a Benefit Concert night held in Fremantle, Western Australia.

We want to thank the Fremantle community for their generous donation towards Emergency Housing for Lombok in partnership with Project Karma. A benefit concert was held in Fremantle on 7th February, 2019, with musicians and organisers donating their services for the event. Special thanks goes to Ross Mccallum for organising it, to St John’s Anglican Church, Fremantle for providing the venue, and to Michael Gabriel & The Quixotics, Mike Burns and friends, Tania Martin, Rose Parker and David Hyams, The Saltations, Jean-Guy Lemire and Mark Cain for providing the wonderful music.
Lucienne Kristi Anhar is to be credited for instigating and facilitating Project Karma’s shelter partnership project in Lombok, which has been running since October last year and to date has built around 800 quality shelters for around 3000 people in dire circumstances.
Whilst Project Karma’s temporary shelters are modest, they provide the basic necessities, are safe, dry, eco friendly, designed to last a minimum of 2 years and built by professional contractors… but the best part is, they only cost AUD $500 each (Rp 5,000,000)
Don’t forget to support the businesses whom give back to the community and you can book services or buy products from any of these donors through the MyRedEnvelope website: www.myredenvelope.com whereby all purchases give a 10% donation of the purchase price to the charity supported by that business. It’s a great system to pay it forward.
