Compassionate DFW is a grassroots non-profit 501(c)(3) charity organization whose mission is to foster the International Charter for Compassion and compassionate action in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex with the Golden Rule as its guiding principle.
Fort Worth, Texas became the first DFW metroplex city mayor/council to sign the International Charter for Compassion by resolution and become “Compassionate Fort Worth” on August 5, 2014. Compassionate DFW hosted DFW metroplex city officials at a luncheon November 12, 2014 at the Dallas Country Club and presented Fort Worth’s Mayor Betsy Price with the first Compassionate DFW Challenge Coin.
The Three Pillars of Compassionate Fort Worth
- Unity: A community should be united on shared values, recognize the uniqueness of individuals and communities and decrease actions fueled by the hatred of those differences.
- Volunteerism: A community should embrace volunteerism and strive to give all citizens every opportunity learn how to reach out in service to their fellow citizens and make a positive difference.
- Abundance: A community should strive to end poverty and come together to ensure all citizens are abundantly fed physically, mentally, and spiritually.
