What are the Compassion Games

What are the Compassion Games? 

The Compassion Games is a non-profit organization based out of Clinton, Washington. The heart quarters are here, the magnificent beings who created and maintain the Compassion Games are South Whidbey Locals. 

The games are held internationally and their is a online report map, for tracking and celebrating all the change makers actions of kindness. This map is a great tool for organizing a co-opetition between teams, to see who can be the kindest and make the biggest positive impact. We all WIN! 

You can sign up for the games web -site; and you will receive emails with missions, messages and inspiration. (adult focused)

Fairy Magic Invites the YOUTH of South Whidbey to participate in a customized compassion game. The missions are outlined on Fairy Magic’s Facebook and web site; the report map is easy to use to report under Fairy Magic Team. We will have a Celebration Ceremony at the Langley Tree Lighting on : 

Kiddos whom do not have access to technology and or the younger littles, Fairy Magic offers a check -list special for them to mark off what they do each day. With help from older trusted kids and or parents make sure the acts of kindness are imputed onto the map before the celebration ceremony. Older kids are encouraged to adopt a “ Compassion Team Buddy”, and help a younger kid navigate the games. Fairy Magic Team has sub-teams, you can make your own sub-team or join - Tiger Martial Arts, Tilth Earth Stewards and more to come! 

All children need to have their parents permission and support to safely navigate how to be of service in the community.
