Welcome to the Academy of Goodness where everyone is a teacher and the curriculum is doing good, being awesome, and learning about what matters.
The OMHG is building a cooperative community and our October Maker’s Retreat is gathering to make a movement-these are big steps and we have so very much to learn. This September we’re going back to school in the best way possible! We’ll be publishing interviews, features + guest post from YOU on projects that deserve support & inspiring makers who are helping us think, be, and do good as a community.
Complete our 1st assignment to enroll in the Academy of Goodness:
1. Nominate someone whose goodness you want to see celebrated or featured this month in the comments of this post.
2. Share your stories and submissions with us. What lessons have you learned about living a good life or doing good work in the world? What knowledge, skills, resources or books would you want shared at an Academy of Goodness? Who is inspiring you to think harder or care deeper? Reach out to interview them, write them a letter of gratitude and submit it, tell us why their work matters to you. Share a story to make us stop and think, offer up art/music/dance/creativity to make us remember that being a maker is a gift, or call us to action on an important project to make us work.
Submit your homework on our submission page & congratulations, you are now a teacher at the Academy of Goodness!
From September 11-21 we will be taking part in the Compassion Games because what is an Academy of Goodness without a different kind of team sports? During the Games we’ll post community challenges, questions and assignments designed to make our communities safer, kinder, more just, and better places to live. Join us in doing everything from sharing stories of compassion to performing Random Acts of Kindness, being of service, raising funds and supporting important work in our communities. All our activities will be recorded and reported to the Compassion Games leaderboard where we’ll compete + cooperate to see who in the land is the most compassionate of all! Learn more about the Compassion Games & take part as an individual by submitting reports of acts of compassion on their interactive map. So sharpen up those pencils & pack your lunch, it’s time to get schooled in goodness!
“Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers.” ― Richard Bach
