The Charter for Compassion and Compassion Games International partner to launch
“The Giving Games: Youth and Schools Play It Forward!”
Compassion Games International offers fun and creative ways to ignite compassionate action in communities around the world. The Compassion Games bring the Charter for Compassion to life through the power of coopetition, catalyzing tangible acts of compassion and organized service projects in our communities.
There is a deep connection between affirming the Charter for Compassion and playing in the Compassion Games. The Compassion Games started as a way to engage individuals and communities to actualize the vision of the Charter. The Games occur a number of times throughout the year and measure the progress of compassionate action over time, capturing the number of volunteers, hours of service, people served, and monies raised for local or global causes.
Seattle, Louisville and hundreds of other communities, schools, businesses and organizations have played the Compassion Games, collectively serving over 1 million people in more than 34 countries to make communities safer, kinder, and better places to live.
The Compassion Games: (1) Ignite engagement; (2) Amplify what's already working; (3) Establish a framework and baseline for measuring compassion strength; (4) Stimulate and enhance reflection and learning; (5) Provide a platform for cultivating open participation; and (6) Connect participants to a global movement.
The Giving Games are played globally between youth, educators, and mentors to inspire acts of generosity and organized service projects that create a culture of compassion and help foster safe and fulfilling places of learning.
