THE COMPASSION GAMES
Survival of the Kindest
WTCSE invites all of its members (and non-members) to join the global challenge to find out “Who is the World's Most Compassionate City?” The score will be settled during the Global Unity Compassion Games: Tomorrow Together from September 11, a National Day of Service and Remembrance, through September 21, the International Day of Peace.
On Wednesday, July 27 a kick-off celebration and networking event took place at the World Trade Center Seattle. Fifteen non-profits, including Seattle Goodwill, Camp Korey, and The Beyond Project shared with civic and business leaders their missions and invited them to sign up to participate in the service opportunities they plan to host during the September games. To further the celebration, Mayor Ed Murray officially proclaimed July 27 as Seattle’s Day of Compassion.
In the Compassion Games, competition becomes “coopetition” as individuals and teams challenge one another through community service, acts of kindness, and raising funds for local causes. All good deeds, volunteer hours, money raised, and people impacted between the dates of September 11 and September 21 will be logged via a web-based report map, a platform viewed publicly by millions of people.
This year is the 15th anniversary of 9/11. We invite you and your community to get involved! Learn more here.
