Share your story of compassionate action for the Compassion Game

In 2010, Seattle adopted the Charter for Compassion and is embarked on a ten year effort to BE a compassionate city. Louisville KY followed suit. Now they've challenged us in a Compassion Game to be as compassionate as they are. So we responded by organizing the month long Compassion Games: Sept. 21 through October 31.  

On Sept. 21, on the United Way Day of Caring, 58,000 people recorded compassionate acts that they did ... starting our month off with gusto.

Among the things you can do, is tell your story of compassionate action.  I know you have those stories -- so PLEASE write up or video yours; then go to the website and click on the Compassion Stories section to submit yours. AND there are other events you can participate in too. 

I'd love to see citizens of Lake Forest Park and Shoreline really show up in this!  

Please sign the Charter for Compassion yourself and encourage your City council to adopt it.
