The 2018 September Compassion Games, is a 16-day challenge to unify communities around the world in an expression of globally synchronized intentions with locally organized compassionate action.
Starting on September 8, 2018 and culminating on World Peace Weekend (September 22-23), players and teams will challenge and inspire each other to organize actions that build bridges between peace, prosperity, and the planet. Players can create or join their own service projects and/or participant in any of the featured ways to play. As players and teams participate, results are shared on the Compassion Report Map to highlight, measure, and celebrate the collective impact our actions have around the world!
The Global Unity Games are part of the World Peace & Global Unity Campaign organized by Unify, Compassion Games and many others. The Global Unity Games honors the 14 years of Global Unity convergence activities, events, broadcasts, festivals, actions, and campaigns taking place every September as a result of We, The World bringing all the partners and visionaries together to launch 11 Days Of Global Unity starting in 2004 and continuing through today. It takes a village of many organizations and humans coming together to create social change and consistent inspiration alive over all these years. Nimo Patel along with Empty Hands Music holds the Call To Play for teams and individuals around to take action in peace waves on the streets worldwide. In September 2018 9/08 through 9/23, We Shall Overcome and Let Love Lead The Way!
The motivating vision for the Campaign states:
We are at a turning point in the development of our global community. It’s an unprecedented time when many of us are reflecting on how we can make the most positive impact. We are ready for more authentic connections, to promote peace and understanding, to spread prosperity and freedom, and protect and restore our planet. Let’s use this campaign to come together to build the relationships that address our complex and interwoven challenges such as ending terrorism, reversing climate change, preventing pandemics, and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals as defined by the United Nations.

We are so honored to be partnering with Andy Smallman, Founder of Kind Living this year. Andy is the Chief of the International Kindness Team. He is the founding director of Puget Sound Community School, an independent school in Seattle for students in grades 6-12. With his wife, Melinda Shaw, and a dedicated group of parents, he started the school in 1994 to help students build on their strengths and nurture their intrinsic motivation.
In 2012, Andy was asked if he could adapt one of his kindness classes for Septemeber Compassion Games, and he is now back in 2018. In response, Andy developed “The Secret Agent of Compassion.” When you sign up to play, you get free access to 16 daily missions written by Andy Smallman and designed art from Fish Astronaut.
