9 months ago
In Seattle, it's a countdown to the Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest. First Louisville, KY turned out thousands of citizens to perform 90,000 acts of service in a week-long Give-A-Day project, now Seattle plans a month-long effort to help, heal & inspire its community.
The Compassion Games begin on Friday September 21st with the United Way Day of Caring, and end on Sunday October 21st, the last day of The Next Fifty at Seattle Center. Anyone can play!
The Compassion Games consists of 4 events:
1. Scavenger Hunt
The city wide Scavenger Hunt will have you go places, do things and/or collect items, and earn Karma Points!
If you are interested in being a part of the team designing the challenges sign up and let us know.
2. Random Acts of Compassion
Random Acts of Compassion are selfless acts performed by a person or a group of people wishing to help others. Those who play this game will learn about kindness and compassion by practicing it.
You can perform random acts of compassion for those you know, those unknown, for the earth, or for yourself. FULL DETAILS
3. Planned Action Projects
Planned Action Projects can be organized by anyone and volunteers can join any of the projects being planned. You can submit a project here on the United Way platform.
Once a project is approved anyone can volunteer to participate. Prospective volunteers can sort the projects by the different organizations, by the projects, as well as by date and time. Examples of projects include: plant a garden, organize a carpool, paint a house, clean up a lot, organize food shelves at a food bank, volunteer to help out at an animal shelter.
4. Stories of Compassion
Join the story-telling contest and submit your Stories of Compassion.
We are collecting Stories of Compassion from our community to celebrate and acknowledge our strength. Stories will be posted on this site, becoming an online gallery of work. The contest is open to everyone — students, professional and community media and bloggers, and community members. We are encouraging stories that are told with text, video, photos, and audio, or a combination of these tools.
