What do you think of when you hear the word compassion?

On February 20th, (at least) one thousand bloggers will be flooding the blogosphere with their take on Compassion. One feeling is common – Compassion is something the world desperately needs right now.
Inspired by this post on the blog Considerings titled “We ALL Need the Village”, founders Yvonne Spence and Lizzi Rogers decided to create the village. It started with a Facebook group and within the first couple days hundreds of bloggers signed up to participate.
Then something else amazing happened. Some of the bloggers’ kids and friends wanted to participate too, even though they didn’t have blogs to share their stories. And then this blog was born.
You don’t have to have your own blog to participate. You can write your post in Word, or in an email and we will take care of publishing it here on #1000Speak. You can join the Facebook group if you want to connect with the other participants. You can search and use the hashtag #1000Speak on Twitter if you’d like. If you don’t want to do the social media stuff that’s okay too. We’d still love to have your story.
Help us make history by flooding the internet with GOOD for one day! If you are interested please email us at 1000Speak@gmail.com and we will guide you through the process.
