There are moments in life when one wonders, “how the heck didn’t I find that earlier?” That’s exactly what I felt when Todd from Peace Day Austin introduced me to Lesa who told me about the Compassion Games. What an amazing project. You have to check it out at: www.compassiongames.org.
They have five major events every year ranging from three to ten days. In the games “competition becomes coopetition as teams and individuals challenge one another to strive together to make our planet a better place to live through community service, acts of kindness, and raising monies for local causes.”
Their site is full of great ideas about ways to play either as individuals or in teams. There’s a lot there and I highly suggest you dig deep. Next event starting soon are the Global Unity games which start on September 11th and end on the International Day of Peace on September 21st.
Planet Earthlings has create a team for the Compassion Games and we’re hoping to get all those who are going to play “Acting Kindly” to join us as subteams all over the world.
