The Compassion Games are designed to make our communities safer, kinder, more just, and better places to live. 

Why Compassion Games?
At the heart of the Compassion Games’ purpose is the belief that within each of us exists an innate, powerful, and ready kindness. We’re passionate about harnessing this kindness in service of “compassionate action”, defined as action motivated by the intention to alleviate others’ pain and suffering. We're also passionate about the importance of playfulness and fun as an effective means by which to build healthy community.
