The kiddos and I had a real unique visit to the free Compassion Experience. It was set up in small section of our local mall over the long weekend. The event is free and gives people a chance to experience various stories of people who have grown up and overcome the challenges of life in a 3rd world country.
The immersive experience recreates actual environments from the people whose stories are being told. The Compassion Experience will challenge your views of poverty, transform your understanding of the world, and move you to be the change for a child that just needs someone to believe in them. Visitors are encouraged at the end to consider sponsoring children to help others overcome their challenges with the help of your compassion.
There will be either two or three different story options which take approximately 15 minutes each. If you pre-register, you will be offered the priority entry line upon arrival, and then you’re welcome to stay as long as you’d like. Plan to schedule up to an hour total for your visit because the crowds and wait times fluctuate. We had a wonderful experience and encourage others to visit too.
The show can accommodate around 25 guests every 20 minutes. The experience is operated on a continuous flow, with 3-5 people sent through the tour every 4 minutes or so.
