History of the Games
The Compassion Games started when Compassionate Louisville declared itself the most compassionate city. Compassionate Seattle organizers declared, “Game On”! Cities began coopeteting to prove how they were the most compassionate. Now, every year between September 11th and the 21st (United Nations Peace Day), cities around the globe record and report the number of volunteers; number of volunteer hours; number of dollars collected, if any; and the number of people affected, if measurable.
Toledo has been participating since 2014 and our city has consistently ranked near the top in at least two categories.
How the Games Work
MFC catalogs compassionate activity already occurring in the region between the 11th and 21st of September each year. We encourage local organizations, businesses and individuals to register and report their numbers. MFC tallys and reports to Compassion Games International.
