Sit for Compassion is a community challenge and peer-to-peer fundraising campaign in support of Awaken Pittsburgh’s mission to foster well-being, empathy, and compassion for all by teaching and encouraging mindfulness and meditation practices.
The challenge is simple – commit to sitting quietly and nurturing peace and compassion in yourself for a chosen period of time and inspire friends and family to donate to your sit.
