Can Powell River once again perform 10,000 acts of compassion in one day?
Inspired by the students from School District #47 & led by the community's Compassion Challenge Committee, the Compassion Challenge will spark a wave of goodness across the community. Show compassion to yourself, the environment, animals, and the community.
Connect through meaningful acts of kindness, compassion, and service.
Share your acts on www.thecompassionchallenge.org and #compassionchallenge
Highlight the diversity of people in our community and the many ways we can help each other.
