The Dalai Lama has stated that for a community to thoroughly embrace compassion, a long-range and practical plan must be adopted.
Long-range — that’s our school children! And practical, well that’s what this Checklist for Compassion offers in its own small way, joining our mayor’s Give-A-Day and many other magnificent and long-range problems.
This Checklist intends to:
- Demonstrate how our entire school system is not only consciously practicing compassion but leading the way by their inspiring volunteer service in the very categories that we think of as only for adults!
- Bring joy to everyone’s hearts by seeing the scope of how much good the MANY nonprofits are contributing to our region.
- Offer each one of you an easy way to sign-up for enjoyable and suitable service — to volunteer compassionately
- And further long-range: Compassionate Louisville offers our efforts as a template to all our world’s cities and towns as a way that we may work as one team, raising compassionate future generations and citizens, who are aware of their own community’s needs and address these joyfully.
