On March 25th, 2017 Compassion Globally organized a live art auction featuring 48 original Canadian art pieces. These were donated by generous artists across Canada including the world renowned- Robert Bateman. The 71 silent auction items ranged from Koko Monk chocolates, to an antique beetle-back mandolin. The auction grossed over $16,400.
On Saturday, October 24th, 2015, Compassion Globally presented a cross-Canada musical ‘flash mob’ extravaganza, synchronized in 13 cities at the same time. Choirs sang verses based on love and peace in surprise locations from coast to coast. Their powerful voices reverberated through their communities, and spread awareness about violence against women across the country.
When parents are respectful and kind towards people around them, their children will mirror and internalize similar behaviour. From the time your wonderful infant draws her or his first breath, tenderly teach them to be gentle and respectful towards all others. Jenny Morgan, a very passionate artist and an ally, composed a lullaby for CG called “Little Sapling” that we all can sing to our little ones.
