Who is the creator of Good X Karma
The story behind this business is one of inspiration, tenacity and heart.
My name is Xav and I am 10 years old from Newcastle. In 2019 my dad suggested that I undertake my first fundraiser. It was called SurFebruary where you surf every day in February to raise funds for the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse (See below for details on COBLH)
I had so much support from Newcastle and raised over $12,000 in 2018 towards a great cause. Strangers were coming up to me at the beach each morning telling me how proud they were for what I was doing and it made me feel warm inside. It inspired me to want to do more!
My mum and I had been making some hand crafted soap and lip balms on weekends. We came up with the idea of making more and selling them with all profits going towards helping people with cancer. Through SurFebruary I got to meet some pretty special people that were a part of COBLH as well some people who were treated there that are now cancer-free.
I learnt through Surfebruary that it will take a lot of money and research to cure cancer and my little project is my way of raising a little bit ongoing to try and help. Outside of the costs of making the hand crafted soaps and lip balms Good X Karma will donate all profits to COBLH.
I know that this amount may not be much but the products we are making are made with love and with the aim of making a difference in some small way. I hope when you use these awesome products or if you gift them to someone you love that you feel the Good Karma. We are helping to create a little more awareness that no matter how little, we can all do something to help people living with cancer.

What is SurFebuary:
Nothing quite beats the feeling of plunging your head under the ocean waves, breathing in the salt air and feeling part of the big blue.
After first hand experience with cancer, Jenna-Lea and Arron Clark, along with Mike Durante and Krista Huebner decided to harness the power of this natural phenomenon for the good of others by launching SurFebruary in 2018.
Living with a cancer diagnosis brings many challenges, not just the physical. It is well established that exercise, sunlight and being by the sea can improve mood and relieve feelings of stress and anxiety, helping to improve mental wellbeing. That’s why SurFebruary and Chris O’Brien Lifehouse are natural partners.
Catch a wave each day (or just take a plunge in the ocean) in February, feel fitter and healthier and all the while raise vital funds for Chris O'Brien Lifehouse. Your donations will support innovative cancer research into supportive care and integrative oncology which can help relieve distressing and debilitating side effects of treatment and restore quality of life for those living with cancer.
Do good, feel good and get onboard for 2021!
