How do you illustrate compassion for a young child? HuffPo blogger Homa Savet Tavanger finds if in the Children Inspire Design map. She also finds inspiration in the Charter for Compassion.
When I excitedly opened the cardboard tube containing the new Children Inspire Design map delivered to my door, my first reaction was perplexity. The world map had no countries identified on it, but did have whimsical animals and people. What's the good of a map without, at minimum, national boundaries?
So I stared at it for probably a minute, trying to understand what artist, mother and social entrepreneur, Rebecca Peragine, whom I admire, might have been thinking by making this minimalist map.
