“Compassionate Pioneers” try to do better and help others.

We seek to recognize, encourage, and support Compassionate Pioneers.

Compassionate Pioneers are those who not only reach beyond their own limits and lead the way in developing or trying new options, but who also encourage and help their colleagues to take the same path.

AND we seek to recognize, encourage, and support
occasional acts of "Compassionate Pioneering" by those who cannot be Compassionate Pioneers all the time!  [Most of us.]

Compassionate Pioneers are those who not only reach beyond their own limits and lead the way in developing or trying new options, but who also encourage and help their colleagues to take the same path.  Perhaps only a few of us can be “Compassionate Pioneers,” but most of us can engage occasionally in acts of “Compassionate Pioneering” – and we should do so as often as we can.  

Those who frequently give their ideas and their work to an environment of sharing and who build upon each other’s contributions are compassionate pioneers.

Every contribution of an idea or effort to an environment of sharing and building upon each other’s contributions is an act of compassionate pioneering.

We can all be Compassionate Pioneers more often.
