Why stories of compassion matter to Seattle

Stories of Compassion is part of an umbrella effort called “Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest,” and it begins Sept. 21. The Compassion Games are sponsored by Compassionate Seattle, United Way of King County, the City of Seattle, and King County. The games are intended as both a fun and serious way to renew regional dialogue about the value of compassionate action in our personal lives and in our communities.


Opening day coincides with United Way of King County’s Day of Caring, one of the great compassion efforts our community participates in every year. Contest entries will be posted online at the Compassion Games site, a gallery for all to read, see and share. Winners will be announced later this fall. But it won’t end there.
