Compassion Games Begin January 15. Are You In?
From Compassion Games
The MLK Weekend: Living Beloved Community Coopetition is a 4 day challenge to bring the vision of Dr. King’s Beloved Community to life through acts of kindness and organized service projects. Beginning January 15th on MLK’s birthday and going through January 18th (a U.S. National Day of Service), participants are encouraged to honor the people and places in their lives where Beloved Community thrives while we each more fully realize our unique role in the unfolding story of our time. Uplifting one another, players strive to make the world a more just, safe, and equitable place to live for all members of the Human Family.
Dr. King’s Beloved Community is a global vision in which all people can share in the wealth of the Earth. In the Beloved Community, poverty, hunger and homelessness will not be tolerated. Love and trust will triumph over fear and hatred.
How to Play
There are many ways that individuals and teams can play, from organizing creative service projects to performing acts of kindness. During each day of the MLK Weekend: Living Beloved Community Coopetition, all players will receive a Secret Agent of Compassion mission offering tangible ideas and inspiration for ways to play. Players then report and reflect on their activities on the Compassion Report Map. The reports of Registered Teams are displayed on the MLK Weekend Coopetition Scoreboard, displaying the number of volunteers, number of hours served, number of people served, and the monies raised for local or global causes. Even though we keep score, no one can lose the Compassion Games: the more people that play, the more people win.
