COMPASSIONATE KIDS – Kids Teaching Compassion & Inspiring Connection Through Kindness. Helping Each Other, Animals & The Planet.
Compassionate Kids is a service-learning organization whose members care about people, animals, and the environment. Our organization is made up of families with kids in public schools, charter schools, private schools, home schools, and “unschooling” households around the greater Atlanta area. While we come from many different faiths and lifestyles … from veganism to Buddhism, Judaism …to nontheism, we are a SECULAR organization which unites around the common goals of raising our children lovingly and respectfully, and teaching compassion in action for all living things and our planet.
We believe that the goal of education as humans should be to both understand the state of our world AND to promote positive change to make it a better place.
We strive to funnel our time and resources into projects that benefit people, animals, and/or the environment in our own communities and around the world.
We hope to provide “hands-on” opportunities for children to experience the excitement and satisfaction of participating in activities where they are helping others. We aim to inspire kids to come up with their own ideas for service projects and to offer encouragement and assistance so that they can explore and manifest these ideas in some concrete way. We hope to instill in children the attitude that no one is ever too small to think of a big idea and put it into action.
Education, action, and inspiration are at the heart of our organization.
We are so excited to see this organization grow! If you would like to join us and be a part of Compassionate Kids please complete our Membership Form here.
We strive to funnel our love and resources into projects that benefit children and families in need in our community and beyond. We hope to provide opportunities for children to see what big changes little people can make in their world. We strive to use socially responsible and environmentally conscious resources in our projects whenever possible.
Education, action and inspiration are at the heart of our organization.
We believe that the goal of our education as humans should be to understand the state of our world and our part in making it a better place. We strive to learn more about the needs of people and the environment in our community and beyond.
We want to turn our love and compassion into action by identifying existing projects or creating new ones that would meet a need we are passionate about.
We seek examples of compassionate work of others for inspiration, and look to inspire others with our work both in our local community and across the globe.
As a support to parents, teachers, and home educators, we will provide resources on this website for eco-friendly & animal-friendly curricula, activities, books, videos, magazines, articles, organizations, websites, and other online and offline resources for promoting compassion, kindness, empathy & tolerance.
