A Call to Selfless Service

MLK 40 Days of Selfless Service and Embracing the Power of Love

The Forty Days of Courageous Service Coopetition (1/18 – 2/29) honors the magnificent lives of two of our most beloved Heavyweight Champions of Compassion, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) and Muhammad Ali. Join players and teams around the world by celebrating the birthdays of MLK and Ali by igniting their legacies of courageous service into action.

It is impossible to imagine what our world may look like had MLK and Muhammed Ali never been born. Dr. King gave voice and movement to both the pain and the dreams of billions of people around the planet, helping us understand that it is in our power to change ideas and unjust laws when we act together with compassion. Muhammad Ali is one of the most celebrated athletes of all time. He was “The Greatest” not simply because of his skill in the ring, but because of what his boxing matches stood for on behalf of the progress of human rights when doing so was not only unpopular, but dangerous. Muhammed Ali passed away in 2016, yet January 17th would have marked his 75th birthday.

Each of these men spoke to the importance of service above all else, and they lived that message with courage. Dr. King said: “Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.” Muhammad Ali said: “Service is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.”

In that spirit, we warmly invite you and your community to join us in these Forty Days of Courageous Service to make our world a more just, safe, and equitable place to live for all members of the Human Family!

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 & Ali: Five Days of Courageous Service Coopetition, all players will receive an 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 Coopetition Scoreboard (which is posted in the days leading up to the coopetition), 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.
