“It has been discovered that a powerful antidote exists that can counteract the hate, hurt, and negativity that plagues our global community. This highly potent antidote is called “compassion,” and it exists within you.” -Mission 1, Agents of Compassion
Compassion Games International is committed to recruiting 10,000 new players – known as Agents of Compassion – and over 150 global compassion teams to play in the 2015 Annual Games and disseminate the antidote to heal and revitalize our world.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to become a Champion of Compassion. By becoming a Champion, you can help attract and support players from around the planet to engage in acts of compassion that will serve over 1 million people in this year’s 2015 Global Compassion Games! If there ever was a time for Champions of Compassion, it is now!
Champions of Compassion are part of a super-empowered task force of people who are positioned to accelerate the spread of the compassion movement around the planet. Champions recognize the fundamental importance of compassion – and “Survival of the Kindest” – in our increasingly globalized communities, and wish to use their personal power to positively influence the development of a more compassionate world!

Why Does This All Matter?
The Charter for Compassion finishes with the following Call-to-Action:
“We urgently need to make compassion a clear, luminous and dynamic force in our polarized world. Rooted in a principled determination to transcend selfishness, compassion can break down political, dogmatic, ideological and religious boundaries. Born of our deep interdependence, compassion is essential to human relationships and to a fulfilled humanity. It is the path to enlightenment, and indispensable to the creation of a just economy and a peaceful global community.”
Compassion is the antidote to the fear, disconnection, and isolation of our time. Scientific research abounds in revealing the intrinsic human necessity for compassion to flourish in both our personal and civic lives. As a profound source of power within each of us, playing with compassion inspires us to connect authentically with one another, rejuvenating our spirits as we actively live into a positive vision of our world.
