The Butterfly Project is a lesson on the Holocaust to discuss the dangers of hatred and bigotry. There will be a special viewing of NOT The Last Butterfly, an award-winning documentary about The Butterfly Project. Then a brief description of The Butterfly Project and discussion. Lastly, there will be an opportunity for participants to be part of a world-wide effort to remember and memorialize the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust. Each participant will paint a ceramic butterfly, and, together, will create a work of art to symbolize that we each have a voice and can stand up to injustice.

The Compassion Experience is an Interactive Tour which immerses visitors into daily life in a foreign country. It will bring visitors on a journey into the lives of two Compassion-sponsored children living in Ethiopia and the Dominican Republic. This will be a self-guided tour that immerse visitors in the lives of the children. Through the use of an iPod, a headset and 1,700 square feet of interactive space, visitors will see the children’s homes, walk through schools and markets, and hear life-changing stories of hope—all from the perspective of a child whose life began in poverty. This event is appropriate for all ages and is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has never had the chance to travel outside the U.S. to get a small glimpse of what life can be like in developing countries.
