Jul 05, 2017 02:00AM
Compassionate Fernandina was launched in 2015 by Dr. Tom Washburn and Jane Holzcamp to acknowledge Fernandina’s already strong network of non-profit organizations and community volunteers and to officially designate Fernandina as a “Compassionate City” with the goal of engaging each member of the community in making the place we live and the world in general a better place. The international Charter for Compassion states, “Rooted in a principled determination to transcend selfishness, compassion can break down political, dogmatic, ideological and religious boundaries. Born of our deep interdependence, compassion is essential to human relationships and to a fulfilled humanity. It is the path to enlightenment, and indispensable to the creation of a just economy and a peaceful global community.” For more information visit www.compassionatefernandina.org.
