Shining World Heroine Award Laureate: Brave Climate Activist Greta Thunberg (vegan)

Greta Thunberg, a 17-year old vegan, has inspired millions of young people across the globe to speak up and urge adults to act now before it’s too late to stop the climate crisis of our planet. In August 2018, at age 15, Greta decided the would go on strike from school, and spend her days sitting in front of Sweden’s parliament building to encourage the government to make halting global warming their top priority. Greta has spoken at some of these youth-led rallies to encourage large-scale, national-level climate policy change. “Solving the climate crisis is the greatest and most complex challenge that homo sapiens have ever faced. The main solution, however, is so simple that even a small child can understand it. We have to stop the emissions of greenhouse gases.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present Greta Thunberg the Shining World Heroine Award with love, admiration, and best wishes for abundant success, in God’s grace.”

Homeless Not Toothless is a non-profit charitable organization. Dr. Grossman and his team of volunteer dental providers have given away free dental care to homeless veterans and civilians alike as well as foster children for nearly three decades. Our Association members in Los Angeles, USA had honor of interviewing Dr. Jay Grossman. “I didn’t want to take care of today, I wanted to take care of tomorrow. So by giving them teeth and getting them out of pain and having them look good so they could interview for a job, and being able to eat and properly nourish themselves, they can now sustain themselves for a lifetime. That’s how Homeless Not Toothless got started.” Through this connection, Dr. Grossman’s Homeless Not Toothless expanded their free dental care services to foster children in the Los Angeles area. “The last 3 years, they've treated over 15,000 kids for free.”

Shining World Kindness Award Recipient: Sahouli Cheikh Faizal – A Compassionate Youngster

Today, we travel to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, well known for its shining skyscrapers, natural attractions and culinary delights, to meet an adorable 4-year-old humanitarian named Cheikh Faizal. In a spontaneous clip his father recorded of Cheikh, the young child’s innocent kindness melted hearts on social media. His small acts of gentle kindness moved people in a profound way, reminding everyone of the humanity we are born with. Cheikh’s father, Sahouli Bouamama, was understandably very proud of his son’s compassion. “My son saw the young boy without shoes and made the decision himself that he wanted to help him. He showed his love for everyone there, even though they are homeless. He then went home without his shoes. Hopefully, everybody in the world will see this positive message and we can make life better for every human being. There are many homeless people, but if everybody makes a small gesture of kindness we can improve their lives.” Cheikh has also done many other thoughtful things to help his community. He collected garbage at a beach and left a very cute message asking people to take care of the beach. Recently, he distributed toys and other gifts to children living in less-advantaged rural areas. Upon hearing the news of his pure hearted compassion, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai offered the Shining World Kindness Award to the youngster “plus US$3,000 in case more socks and shoes are needed for others, in Allah’s Grace. May Heavens reward you and your good family richly. Love you.” And then, after knowing about his other altruistic deeds, Supreme Master Ching Hai arranged “to send a further US$10,000 to Sahouli Cheikh Faizal to support his noble work. With all love, big cheers and benevolent best wishes in Allah's merciful grace.” They showed deep gratitude to our Beloved Supreme Master, expressed their love towards all animals and also shared their thoughts about the noble vegan lifestyle. “A vegan lifestyle is very, very good. It will help human beings and also it will help animals a lot. And for COVID-19, it will help either to reduce or stop COVID-19. If everyone does the vegan lifestyle, maybe this COVID-19 will not even exist at all. Be vegan; save all animal life. Thank You, Master.”

For as long as humanity has existed, migration has been a part of civilization. In a state of war, poverty or oppression, many are forced to flee their homes, only to become exiles in a foreign land.

Acts of Compassion Beget Acts of Heroic Love, Part 2 of 2

One day in 2016, rescuers found a severely wounded 2-year-old Golden Retriever in a garbage bag. Members of Nabiya Irion Hope Project rescued her and gave her urgent medical treatment. "Chi Chi" had lost all her legs, but not her strong will to live. The joint mission to give Chi Chi a new life brought these two noble organizations together, Nabiya-Irion Hope Project and ARME. Shannon Keith and her team at ARME found Chi Chi a loving home with Richard and Elizabeth Howell in Arizona, USA. After being fitted with special prostheses, Chi Chi trained to become a certified therapy dog. She then spent her life serving and comforting people in hospitals and social care centers until she passed away in 2019. She brought so much joy and happiness to people she was named the 2018 American Hero Dog. Touched by the love shared between Chi Chi and her rescuers, beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai tearfully sent, "a heartfelt thanks to all involved and a big hug to Chi Chi! You'll go to a forever Heaven and your benevolent adopted family be blessed forever." Master also presented the Shining World Compassion Award to both noble organizations, Nabiya-Irion Hope Project and ARME, and a US$10,000 contribution to each "with high salute and thankfulness.

Acts of Compassion Beget Acts of Heroic Love, Part 1 of 2

On today’s show, we feature a Shining World Compassion Award recipient, Animal Rescue Media and Education (ARME). We were privileged to have an exclusive interview with Ms. Shannon Keith, founder and president of ARME. “We’re active all across United States and internationally. We rescue animals from places of abuse, mostly from animal testing facilities. However, we’ve also expanded our mission to include other forms of unique captivity and abuse. So we also rescue animals in China and Korea, from the meat trade, and any type of animal who has special needs that we can save. For example, very old hospice dogs who are on death row in the local city shelters or animals who are paralyzed, we will never say no.” Founded in 2004, the California-based non-profit animal welfare organization, ARME, and their associated action group, the Beagle Freedom Project, are compassionate all-vegan heroes who save and protect animals from test laboratories. The inspiring organization has also developed an innovative and robust advocating program with the goal of removing institutional cruelty through legal action and different social media. Over the years, Shannon and her team have extended their rescue missions to include all abused animals.
