empathy hotline

January 30, 2013

community work

Nathan McTague’s enthusiasm is contagious. Through his blog A Beautiful Place of the World he demonstrates his love for his family, the place where he lives, the part he plays in the world, and his thoughtful insights and quality information about being a parent.

Nathan and his partner Natalie have started an Empathy Hotline. At the moment it’s a group on Facebook. It’s a place where you can give and receive empathy.

What a brilliant idea. How can we increase the amount of empathy in the world? By giving it and receiving it – practicing it every day. A wave of empathy enveloping the world. Now wouldn’t that be nice?

Everyone is welcome to join! I hope to see you there.

Head over to The Empathy Hotline.
