I consider myself a compassionist (which doesn't even appear to be an official US English word). Here's how I responded to the question of why I was passionate about my cause on a recent survey I completed, it sums it up pretty well I think.

Because I believe that when we connect and tap into our compassion, we can affect a flow of abundance (time, money and people) to save animals from extinction and cruelty.

Would you call yourself a compassionist and, what would being a compassionist mean to you?
