As you know, the goal of Compassionate Seattle is to mobilize community resources to make Seattle truly a City of Compassion by the year 2020. The recent gun violence in Seattle only serves to heighten the challenges we face and our need to be engaged citizens; people with the vision and the power to collaborate effectively to create a connected and caring community.
The purpose of the Compassion Games is to challenge and inspire each other to make our community a safer, kinder and better place to live.
Many studies show that there are two major determinants of our local safety: one is how many neighbors we know by name, the other is how often we are present and associated in public—outside our houses. The Compassion Games gives us a chance to get to know our neighbors and multiply the connections and associations in our community.
We need your insight and leadership to help make this successful. We are partnering with the United Way of King County, King County Executive Dow Constantine, the City of Seattle, Seattle Center, and many other organizations and we are hoping to add you and your organization to the growing list of partners. Please comment below and let us know what you think!
The 2012 Compassion Games extends the September 21st United Way Day of Caring to thirty days of compassionate civic action as part of the Next Fifty Civic Action month.

Working together we can make our community safer, healthier, wiser, richer, and a much better place to raise our families and call home.
