2013 Compassion Games: Looking Back & Forward

What was the result when inmates at the California Institution for Women competed in last year’s annual Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest?For the first time in the institution’s history, 11 days went by without a single violent incident.That’s radical.So be prepared for more amazing results when the 2014 games return next September. 

We’re already making plans!The 2013 Compassion Games were a worldwide “co-opetition” that ran Sept. 11-21. Players chose to do random acts of kindness, or signed up to be a Secret Agent of Compassion and receive a daily mission.

Your Compassion Game

The 2013 International Compassion Games have ended but our game of compassion has just begun, Milwaukee. Compassion is a symptom of a kind and healthy community. The game is to notice when it shows up, willingly get afflicted, and then give yourself away. 

If you would like to get in shape for next year's games you can read the wonderful ideas and thoughts offered by Andy Smailman at www.kindliving.net. Andy crafted a game called the Secret Agents of Compassion this year. His tips on how to show up as a compassionate being on the planet were fun and filled with meaning.

Countdown to the Compassion GAMES!

Wow, Milwaukee! There are lots of events and opportunities for you to serve during the GAMES! 

Here's a link to the Compassion Games website.  Look at the EVENTS tab, then CATEGORIES, then MILWAUKEE to see what we have recorded so far...There's lot's more, I know, and please let us know so that you can be recognized.

Check out the GAMES and play!  


How about a play date?


You may not yet know (but now you do) that Milwaukee is participating in the 2013 Compassion Games, not really a “competition” per se, but a “co-opetition” among cities to highlight the great and caring work that is often unnoticed or not acknowledged.  Milwaukee is known for a lot of things – let’s make our Compassion one of them! To that end, it would be wonderful if you and/or your organization play with us and, at the same time, get recognized for your goodness by sharing:
  • Stories of Compassion

Time to start posting on the Compassion Map!



The Milwaukee Compassion Games is set to begin on September 11, 2013, the national day of service but you don't have to wait to exercise your compassion muscles!

It's a great time to familiarize yourself with the Milwaukee Compassion Games and the CompassionMap

Thanks to Jon Ramer, Compassionate Seattle for all the wonderful tools he has created for our Compassionate Campaigns.

Happy reporting, Compassionate Milwaukee!
