Everyone we meet wants to be happy and does not want to suffer. When we recognize the struggles of another we can either fall into despair or be moved into compassion. Compassion is a force for positive change and Compassion Festival aspires to highlight people, communities, and organizations that are engaging in Compassionate Actions. Through creating meaningful connections and offering supportive tools, we hope to inspire and nurture individuals, communities, and the world to engage in actions that make a positive difference in the world.
