2022 Promotional Partners
We are very grateful to the following kind organizations who generously agreed to help promote the 2022 Our World Is Kind contest.
Charter for Compassion’s vision is a world where everyone is committed to living by the principle of compassion. On February 28, 2008 acclaimed scholar and bestselling author Karen Armstrong received the TED Prize and made a wish—to help create, launch, and propagate a Charter for Compassion. After much work and the contribution of thousands of people the Charter was unveiled to the world on November 12, 2009. The Council of Conscience helped to formulate the Charter for Compassion document.
The Charter for Compassion inherits a confluence of contributions made by TED.com, the Compassionate Action Network, the Fetzer Institute, and many others. Charter for Compassion provides an umbrella for people to engage in collaborative partnerships worldwide. Our mission is to bring to life the principles articulated in the Charter for Compassion through concrete, practical action in a myriad of sectors.
Momenta Workshops was launched ten years ago to train photographers in travel documentary and nonprofit storytelling. With more than 700 students and 50 workshops around the globe, the Momenta model has been helping photographers connect with important stories around the globe. We have changed the way nonprofits think about photography and we happily have helped to create new careers for our students. We have shown our student’s new ways to witness the world, meet new people and explore new ways of storytelling.
Momenta’s photography training workshops pair 15 professional photographers with 15 different nonprofits for 3 days to document their activities. When our clients are finished, they donate a selection of the images to their nonprofit partner. We work closely with small, local nonprofits to create a perfect match between photographer and nonprofit and ensure that both parties are empowered to create and share the powerful stories of the work these organizations are doing to improve their communities every single day.
