THE COMPASSION PROJECT

‘Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.’
~ by Frederick Buechner

The Compassion Project

The Compassion Project is an organization created by high school students. The Project started off as a way to promote kindness and to spread compassion throughout the community. After seeing positive results at our school, we decided to take the project one step further by putting the project online.

Our new goal: to spread the compassion movement all over the world. You can participate by submitting quotes, images, videos or anything else related to kindness and compassion. You can also send in your personal definition of the word “compassion” or you can tell us about a compassionate act you or someone you know has done. Join the Project and help create a compassionate revolution!

AFTER TONIGHT

//There’s something in your eyes
Is everything alright?
You look up to the sky
You long for something more, Darlin’
Give me your right hand
I think I understand, follow me
And you will never have to wish again//
