Giving Games Champion Spotlight: Compassionate Louisville

by | Dec 5, 2016 | Champions of Compassion, Compassion Relay, Giving Games

For Day 8 of the Giving Games, we are so grateful to pass the Compassion Torch from the Earth Guardians to none other than Compassionate Louisville, a coalition of pioneers blazing the way as a model compassionate city.

Compassionate Louisville is a coalition of over 100 bustling, active partners working to transform their city into a model compassionate city the rest of the world can emulate. Each organization of this coalition is a Champion of Compassion in their own right, but together? It’s almost unfair for the rest us! In their lineup, Compassionate Louisville has the (Muhammad) Ali Center, Festival of Faiths, Service for Peace, Fons Vitae, Spaulding University, the Global Game Changers, and Mayor Greg Fischer – the man whose challenge sparked the very beginning of the Compassion Games itself – just to name a few.

It also includes the Louisville Islamic Center, which, under the guidance of Dr. Muhammed Baber, is organizing a Compassion Walk in response to the fear about Trump’s election on December 10th.

Compassionate Louisville will also be visited in 2017 by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to mark the exciting opening for the International Center for Compassionate Cities.

We at Compassion Games are infinitely inspired by the folks who call Louisville their home. And, they aren’t afraid to tell you just how compassionate they truly are, going so far as to say they will visit your cities during the Compassion Games to help YOU beat THEM. Now that is compassionate action at its best.

Thank you, Compassionate Louisville, for always bring the spirit of competitive altruism in full force, and for truly being a model compassionate city. Game on!
