I am one of the local organizer for Compassionate Seattle. We are focusing on deepening the work we are doing on the ground in our region and growing the online network and connecting each others cities, towns and villages through the International Institute for Compassionate Cities. I am a co-founder of a B Corp (private enterprise for public benefit) Ideal Network that is collaborative commerce for a values based marketplace.
Please make the Compassionate Action Network your online home for all things reated to compassionate action. We want to serve as a resource hub to support peer to peer connections, small group organizing, and large scale collaborations.
Share with us your gifts. We can use these tools to pool our collective resources and wisdom.
Communities need the will as well as the way. Co-creating a social network reminds you that just a few people can make a real big difference. I look forward to working with you on creating a compassionate future! Please reach out to invite others and continue to contribute to the network.
