I got a call yesterday from Jon Ramer, founder of the Compassion Games. Not only did he want to update me about his recent marriage to Sommer Albertsen (now Sommer Ramer), he wanted to ask if I’d be willing to get back involved with next month’s installment of the games.
You might know that I started working with Jon on the games back in 2012 when he got the project started. I created a game called the Secret Agent of Compassion that involved sending out missions each morning (daily encouragements to do something kind and compassionate) through 2015, and since then have served in an advisory capacity. Jon is looking to return to the more simple format I favor so he reached out. I’m hopeful my artist friend Fish Astronaut can create some new images. If not, I’ll make use of some from the past.
To see an archive of the past missions and to learn more about the overall project, I’ve got a Secret Agent of Compassion website you can check out. Facebook users can “like” and “follow” the secret agent page.
This year, the games start on September 8th and continue for 16 days, ending on the 23rd. Sign up to have the missions delivered to your email inbox here.
