We’re more than a Membership…




Working Class Karma/Virginia Art With Heart, is a NETWORK of LOCAL Creative people, nonprofits and sponsors who raise money and awareness for nonprofits in a positive and proactive manner!

Our Story….

Our organization was started by artists and friends in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Lori Dunn, Martha C. Wilson and Tamara Seraph are existing members and the original founders of, Virginia Art With Heart. At a meeting at a very known coffee place at the oceanfront (perhaps they will sponsor us?) one Sunday afternoon, we agreed that artists, musicians and other creative professionals are some of the most passionate people we know. Each of us already had experience and were involved in some type of charitable education, volunteering and fundraising.  We agreed that it would be easy to find other creative professionals just like us, who are willing to go above and beyond for a good cause.

Working Class Karma is destined to grow.  This simple concept of a NETWORK of LOCAL businesses, creatives and nonprofits dedicated to supporting each other can work everywhere.  In time, there will be a way to search the Working Class Karma members by locality.  We will instill the sense of community spirit and support LOCAL everywhere!!!
