What Are the Compassion Games?

A Global Antidote to the Hunger Games!

Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest is a global community action campaign that invites people around the world to do and share acts of compassion that better our lives, our communities, and our world.

The Games are inspired by the Charter for Compassion.

Our Mission is Possible as we Team Up to End Homelessness

There are many ways that individuals and teams can play, from simple acts of kindness to service projects.

Team organizers can either do existing community service events or projects, or organize something new. Players and team organizers report their activities on the Global Map. Teams come from community groups, faith congregations, schools, families, government agencies, businesses, and even inmates in women’s prisons.

Program Goals
