The Charter for Compassion

On February 28, 2008 Karen Armstrong won the TED Prize and made a wish: for help in creating, launching and propagating a Charter for Compassion. On November 12, 2009 the Charter was unveiled to the world.

The Charter for Compassion is a document which urges the peoples and religions of the world to embrace the core value of compassion. The charter is currently available in seven languages, and is being translated into more.

You can see the intro video below, or read the full Charter on its website, here.

The website itself is great.. a place for people to share stories about how acts of compassion – toward and from them -have changed their lives. Check it out!
