Let’s Recap And Plant For The Year


The Compassionate Atlanta Team is grateful for your continuous support. Thank you for showing up and sharing our message of compassion and kindness. We are excited about the projects we have lined up for 2020! Let’s have a great year together.

But, before I jump too fast into what lies ahead, I want to take a moment to reflect. 2019 was a wonderful year of growth for Compassionate Atlanta.

A core part of our work this year was hosting welcoming community conversations. We looked at the intersectionality of many identities, including, gender, sexuality, ability, race and ethnicity, in learning how to create brave spaces and expand our possibilities.

We also had two great additions to the CA Team. Iyabo Onipede as Co-Director and Jimmy Freels as an Intern. Iyabo joined our team early 2019 and has been a gift in helping us move in the right direction to engage and expand our goal of spreading the message of compassion.
Jimmy is a recent college graduate who joined our team in November. His love for community and interest in marketing research has led him to contribute to our work through writing.

Add to that 32 cosponsored events and a total of 146 partners. Our partners embody the best of Metro Atlanta, bringing compassion to thousands of people each day. From small businesses to nonprofits to municipalities, each partner has the ability to bring compassion to the forefront of their work, we are here to help.

Thank you to our 10,000 social media followers who share the messages of compassion and love – some of our posts have reached over 1 million people! Yes, I said that- over 1 million people reading good stories about compassion in action. We’re OK for this to go viral.

And thanks to YOU, we met our $10,000 year-end goal! 2020 here we come!
