Agents of Compassion,

We have critical information for you from Compassion HQ…

Since the times of first peoples, we human beings have sat in circle together to tell stories. Passed down over the generations, we told stories to delight and entertain our wonder, but also to warn and inform our curiosity. All stories, in one way or another, answered important questions that have captured the human spirit since our beginning:

“Who are we?”
“Why are we here?”

And, “Where are we going?”

These are really Big Questions, and so our answers to them make up a really Big Story!

Lately, Agents, it may feel like the Big Story of the World has “gone mad” or “turned upside down.” We may feel that we do not like where we are going right now, as things feel more uncertain, confusing, and divisive on Planet Earth.

We begin to ask, “What exactly is going on here?”

One possible explanation is that the Old Big Story we once believed in is not taking us where it once promised. The story and its answers are no longer working - or they never worked all that well - and so the story is starting to fall apart.

When a Big Story starts to fall apart, something very interesting happens: a crack appears where it once stood. This crack, although scary at first, is actually the space where a New Big Story about who we are, why we are here, and where we want to go can emerge.

Agents, we find ourselves now in the rare space
between two stories.


In this crack, what type of a story do we wish to seed?

What grows here is up to us…
But wcannot do it alone!

That’s why our mission today, Agents,
is to joyfully invite a friend or community
to join us on our journey into the New Story.




Send your friend or communities a link to this story, and take on tomorrow’s mission together!

(They can sign up to receive the mission here!)

If you are called, please share your experiences from today
on the new Compassion Report Map!



The Champion Spotlight illuminates outstanding organizations and individuals around the world whose work is contributing to a more peaceful, just, and compassionate planet. These entities are known as Champions of Compassion.

We are excited for Day 2 of the Unity Games Relay to highlight the

Dear Agents of Compassion,

We warmly invite you to kick off the beginning of
Global Unity Games: Building Bridges
with this short-film made in partnership with UNIFY.
The Global Unity Games: Building Bridges is about envisioning and living into a New Story of the Earth - a unified and abundant world with enough resources and care for every living person and being.
The New Story is growing, right now, wherever we are.

Begin by sharing the video above with your networks,
and signing up for the Global Unity Games.


Over the next 16 days - from September 9th - 24th - we will explore and share ways in which we can contribute to the emerging New Story of our time. We will ask…

What is global unity? What is abundance?
What bridges peace, prosperity and the planet?
What role do I have to play?

Each day of the Global Unity Games, a mission will be sent out featuring the following:
  1. Simple, meaningful ways to seed Global Unity and the New Story in our own lives and communities.
  2. Opportunities to reflect, report, and share our actions on the global Compassion Report Map. The Map has received major upgrades, including sharing individual reports on social media.
  3. Highlights of “Champions of Compassion” from around the world.
  4. As well as local, global, and online events and initiatives we can participate in!
Agents, we are the authors of what happens next…
Let the Global Unity Games begin!

The Compassion Relays illuminate outstanding organizations and individuals around the world whose work is contributing to a more peaceful, just, and compassionate planet. These entities are known as Champions of Compassion.

We are honored to begin Day 1 of the Unity Games Relay with ABC Charity!  
Their charity focuses on kids helping kids by imagining and creating “Letters of Compassion” that build bridges. 

On September 25th 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end povertyprotect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each of the 17 goals (found here) has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

Want to get involved? Start by telling everyone about them! Here's a list of actions that you can take in your everyday life to contribute to a sustainable future.
