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.”

Shining World Invention Award Recipient: Rishab Jain (vegetarian) – A Brilliant Young Inventor

On today’s program, we visit picturesque Portland in Oregon, USA. This culturally diverse “City of Roses” is home to Rishab Jain, a 15-year-old vegetarian inventor and recipient of the Shining World Invention Award. Young programming genius Rishab Jain has developed a smart algorithm that enhances current treatments for pancreatic cancer. After becoming aware of the low survival rates associated with pancreatic cancer, and the fact that very little study has been done on its treatment. Young Rishab was awarded the US-based Discovery Education 3M’s 2018 Young Scientist Challenge award, along with a US$25,000 prize, for his diagnostic achievement. This inspirational young man hopes his work encourages others to focus on positive solutions. “I think that it's been really big for me to work at such a young age and in such a big area. And I think that my invention in the future will really help in the medical field because it opens up a lot of possibilities and a lot of ideas for applying a new field like artificial intelligence into medicine. My biggest wish would have to be to encourage everybody to continue working for things that are positive and not focus on the negative things in life.” Upon hearing of Rishab’s talent, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyously present the Shining World Invention Award to Rishab Jain, with US$10,000 to further his lives-saving project. With congratulations, and lots of love and best wishes in God’s blessing.” The polite teen graciously expressed his appreciation. “Well, it's really amazing that I've been able to get recognized for my work and for my contributions in this area and this award along with the prize money that the Supreme Master has given, will be very helpful in the future for encouraging me to continue working in this area, and also funding some of my more inventions and developments. Thank You so much for the award and recognition.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Healthcare for the Homeless – Houston

Founded in 1999 and incorporated in 2000, Healthcare for the Homeless – Houston (HHH) is a nonprofit organization that exclusively provides care for homeless people in the US city of Houston, Texas. HHH offers a variety of services, including transportation, medical and dental care, street outreach and housing programs. “Give health. Give hope. Give dignity” is the motto of this deeply compassionate nonprofit organization. “What we want to do is to be able to wrap services around people that are either literally still living on the streets or people who are in shelters or very vulnerable to losing their housing. We take very seriously our mission to promote health and promote hope, but especially to promote dignity. We believe that all people should be treated with respect and dignity regardless of their life circumstances.” For almost two decades, they have served approximately 8,500 people annually in the Houston area, ensuring that no one is declined treatment based on their ability to pay. Last year, 92% of those who received care from the program had no form of health insurance. Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, upon learning of the dedication and noble efforts of Ms. Frances Isbell and her staff, gratefully presented Healthcare for the Homeless – Houston with the Shining World Compassion Award, as well as a contribution of US$15,000. “I would like to thank Supreme Master Ching Hai for recognizing the work that we do day to day and for recognizing the need that we have in the world to create a better world, a more compassionate world, a more loving world.” Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai sent this letter to Ms. Isbell and her team. “Dear Ms. Isbell, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to Healthcare for the Homeless, the Shining World Compassion Award for brightening the lives of the underserved, bringing beautiful smiles, and thus uplifting our world with joyful happiness. This award is presented in recognition of your exemplary benevolence providing free holistic medical care to individuals experiencing unfortunate circumstances in their lives.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Action for a Cause Now - Candice Payne

Today, we are going to travel to Chicago, United States of America, to meet the founder of Action for a Cause Now, Candice Payne. Action for a Cause Now is a charitable organization, through which Candice, and a team of volunteers, provide housing for homeless people. “Sitting at home looking at the TV, the news really kind of scared me actually, cause it was everywhere that we were having a polar vortex in this deadly weather, so I just knew I needed to do something, and the 30 hotel rooms was a start. That was a start of what I can do. I had no idea that reaching out to my social media network and people coming together was going to be able to help us to provide housing for over a hundred and twenty-two people for five nights. So, I just knew that I needed to do something, and you know, we saved lives that day!” “Dear Candice, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to you the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for ‘helping our neighborhood friends.’ This Award is presented in recognition of your untiring efforts to alleviate homelessness by building shelters to provide a dignified life for our less-fortunate displaced citizens. Your devotion combined with magical entrepreneurial flair is making a difference in the world – bringing joy and hope, heralding a new era of community empathy.” “May all involved and those you care for be blessed with all necessities and Love. With Great Honor, Love and Blessings in God’s Grace Supreme Master Ching Hai.”

Shining World Hero Award Recipient: Milo – the Guardian Angel Pitbull

Shining World Hero Award Recipient: Milo – the Guardian Angel Pitbull

On today’s show, we travel to Minnesota, USA to meet Milo, a heroic dog who saved his family from a house fire. Minnesota is famously known as “Land of 10,000 Lakes” because of the many magnificent and shimmering lakes spread out across the entire state. It is also a state with vast and untamed nature where humans and animals live peacefully and happily among each other. One night when the Hansen family was peacefully asleep, a fire sparked in the garage. Milo noticed the danger and immediately ran into the bedroom of his human caretakers, Carrie and Dave Hansen, to alert them. Thanks to Milo’s quick actions, all three of them were able to escape the big fire which eventually engulfed the entire property. Bravo Milo for your incredible intuition and life-saving actions! Last year, we had the privilege of meeting Milo and interviewing his caregivers. Dave and Carrie shared stories with us about how active, intelligent and lovely Milo is. His presence not only brings happiness, but also gives them a sense of protection, thanks to his keen senses. “We just saw that Carrie you just did high-five with him before giving him food.” “Yeah, he’s smart.” “Really cool like friends, high-five or high-ten. In what [way] if any [does] this event change your perception on the intelligence animals?” “You’d be amazed how smart he really is. He can go from one thing to another but I mean he's pretty smart, especially with that ball. You’ll hide it from him and he will come into a room he hasn’t been in 3 days and he knows that ball is under something.” Animals have incredible intelligence and Milo is no exception. We’d be surprised at the knowledge and wisdom of our animal friends. Dave and Carrie Hansen, despite losing almost everything, are grateful that they still have each other and especially their beloved Milo. Upon hearing about the smart actions of the canine guardian, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai: “thankfully confer the Shining World Hero Award to Milo, with US$2,000 for goodies, with all love and many hugs, plus US$3,000 for the Hansen family, with much sorrow and prayers for a speedy recovery, in God’s love.” Thank you Milo for your caring vigilance over your human companions. May you and the Hansen family live a healthy and happy life full of Blessings from the Divine.

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: The Noble Endeavors of Mercy for Animals, Part 1 of 2

00:14:56

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: The Noble Endeavors of Mercy for Animals, Part 1 of 2

Today, we are delighted to present a remarkable organization that has been working tirelessly for the last few decades to help inspire compassion and end animal cruelty. Founded by Mr. Milo Runkle in 1999, Mercy for Animals (MFA) is a leading international non-profit organization dedicated to protecting our precious animal friends. After witnessing the abuse of a farm animal for a high school agricultural project near his hometown in Ohio, USA, Mr. Runkle formed Mercy for Animals with the goal of ending the horrendous cruelty and promoting compassionate food choices and animal-free alternatives. This noble organization actively investigates the harsh realities hidden behind factory farm walls and aims to improve state-level policies and legislation for farm animal protection. Mark Devries, manager of special projects and drone investigation at Mercy for Animals and director of Speciesism: The Movie, explains why animals are not food, and why Mercy for Animals spreads the message of love and compassion. “Non-human animals are sentient, complex individuals with deep social and emotional lives, like ourselves. We share the very same brain structures and the very same collections of neuro-chemicals that function the same way, that allow for joy and sorrow and fear and anger, positive and negative.” Mercy for Animals believes that the greatest cruelty and injustice of our time concerns food production by the farm animal industry. This is the important Truth that the organization strives to share with the world. Posted online and via social media, Mercy for Animals’ undercover investigations have been especially effective in bringing that truth to the public. “It's our habits and the attitudes that we have been brought up with, that stop us from seeing something that's actually very clear: that causing harm, causing suffering which we’re all already opposed to, is something that we do when we support industrial animal agriculture, that causes suffering to billions of animals who are just as sentient as you and I are.” Witnessing the suffering of farm animals is a powerful tool of change in terms of both inner consciousness and outer social norms. Mark Devries shared with us his own experience of transformation sparked by directing Speciesism: The Movie, the 2013 award-winning documentary on industrial factory farming. “I actually became vegan when I was working on my first documentary ‘Speciesism: The movie.’ And that is when I started realizing that this is a fundamental issue of ethics and justice. And I could no longer come up with a defense that wasn't refuted for maintaining my current view of non-human animals and for maintaining my current practices. And it seemed to touch people very deeply and impact them very profoundly.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: The Noble Endeavors of Mercy for Animals, Part 2 of 2

Since its founding in 1999, Mercy For Animals has committed “to end the greatest cause of suffering on the planet, the exploitation of animals for food.” They believe the violence and discrimination against farm animals carry no less political and ethical weight than racism, slavery, and crimes against other human groups. Up to 2019, Mercy For Animals has launched more than 70 major investigations into cruelty cases within the animal farming industry, and guided several of the world’s largest food companies to adopt animal welfare policies. In the past two years, the organization’s efforts to change legislative and corporate animal welfare policies helped ease the pain of over 100 million animals and saved the lives of nearly 220,000. The suffering of farm animals exposed by Mercy For Animals has awakened the kindness in many people. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai greatly appreciates “their compassionate effort” and gratefully presents “US$20,000 to Mercy For Animals for their noble work, plus the Shining World Compassion Award, with all love and gratitude. May Heaven bless you and all involved with success and a long life of happiness.” “Dear Supreme Master Ching Hai, We are so grateful for your generous donation of US$20,000 on January 2, 2019. Your support fuels undercover investigations, legal victories, corporate commitments and social impact programs that create a kinder future for farmed animals. Because of you, 2018 was full of monumental successes at Mercy For Animals. You helped us release 8 undercover investigations exposing the deep horrors of commercial driftnet fishing, the plight of chicks and piglets born in factory farms and the suffering of mother pigs trapped in gestation crates. Mercy For Animals enters 2019 with stronger than ever plans to change the world for farmed animals with your support. Thank you for standing with us against cruelty and for compassion.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: The Gentle Barn, Part 1 of 2

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: The Gentle Barn, Part 1 of 2

Today, we have the pleasure of speaking with Ellie Laks, founder of The Gentle Barn, a vegan a nimal sanctuary in Santa Clarita, California, USA. When she was seven, Ellie had already dreamt of a place where she could live together with all the beautiful animals. “What was very clear to me at seven years old, was that I had this very, very deep connection with animals and I saw us as the same. I could hear them and communicate with them and they had so much to teach me. It was so clear to me that animals were here to help us, teach us and heal us. So, I had this idea that when I grew up, I would have this big place full of animals and I would show the world how beautiful these animals are, show people the intelligence of animals, their communication, their affection, and their magic, and maybe more people could be more compassionate and kind to them and we can head towards a gentle world.” The Gentle Barn’s mission is “Teaching People Kindness and Compassion to Animals, Each Other and our Planet.” The sanctuary teaches by example through their meticulous attention and loving care given to their 200 plus animal residents. The gentle rescued animals in turn help teach visitors the same kindness and compassion, opening their minds and hearts. Kindness begets kindness and that is how we heal our world. In her welcome speech to visitors at The Gentle Barn, Ellie also urges people to adopt a plant-based diet. She and her staff provide delicious vegan food and informational flyers to help guide people towards the compassionate and earth-conscious lifestyle. “I’ve done a lot of research, and it seems that the most effective, most efficient, most powerful thing that we can do as individuals to make a gentle world is to go vegan. Did you guys know that when one person goes vegan, we save 200 animals a year? That’s thousands of animals over the course of just one lifetime. When one person goes vegan, we save 1100 gallons of water a day. The cumulative effect of that will end this drought. When one person goes vegan, we save an acre of trees every year, which will combat deforestation, which will ensure that we have a planet to live on in future generations. And if that’s not exciting enough, when we go vegan, we reduce our own risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol level and dementia by 90%. When we set our bodies up for success nutritionally, a plant based diet and a vegan diet is not only crazy easy, but really, really yummy.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: The Gentle Barn, Part 2 of 2

“I have this one horse that has a long, long horrible story of abuse. It took 4 years to heal her, and actually in order to heal her we had to simulate the being ridden in order to ask her to do little things that she knew how to do. And because she had been abused when asked to do things she would start raging and bucking and kicking and just going crazy, and instead of restricting her and trying to control her we would sit on this bucking Bronco basically and just say, ‘Tell me more, tell me more about what scared you. Tell me more about what hurt you. Tell me more about how angry that made you feel.’ We were hearing more and more and more of her story until finally 4 years later she had no anger left in her body and she was free.” “Once they're ready, we partner with them to heal people with the same stories of abuse and neglect. We partner with the animals to take those specific children to The Gentle Barn, and instead of them having to talk about their own emotions and their own feelings and their own stories, we talk about the animal stories, knowing full well that when we share an animal story, we're really telling that child’s story as well. We talk about real food, fruits and vegetables, where our protein and iron and calcium comes from, so they get a sense of what real food is in the garden and they get a chance to really fall in love with animals, learn what real food is, open their hearts and in the process find themselves in the barnyard and it heals their life and changes their life moving forward.” On February 19, 2019, our Association members from Los Angeles, USA, were privileged to present Ellie Laks with the Award letter, plaque, a check of US$10,000 and gifts on Master’s behalf. “Dear Ellie, It is with much admiration and gratitude that we present to The Gentle Barn the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for ‘teaching people kindness and compassion towards animals, each other and our planet’. This Award recognizes your benevolent sanctuary, haven to rescued animals and the nurturing of gentleness in humanity.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Faithful Friends Animal Society

Today, our spotlight is on Faithful Friends Animal Society, a private, non-profit animal welfare organization with a no-kill shelter in Delaware, USA. Founded 20 years ago, the organization has saved countless dogs, cats and other animals. Founder and executive director, Ms. Jane Pierantozzi, shared some of their goals and achievements in an exclusive interview with us. “We’ve dramatically reduced the killing. We provide medical care. We also have a foster care system. If there are special needs and they don’t get adopted, they go into foster homes. And we also have ways to help people keep their pets in their homes. We also have a pet lifeline to help give people advice when they’re looking for resources for strays that they found. We have over 400 volunteers working side by side with about 70 employees.” Following a “No Kill” philosophy, the organization believes in treating every animal as an individual with dignity and respect. Hearing of their noble work in helping our precious co-inhabitants, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “thankfully present Faithful Friends Animal Society the Shining World Compassion Award plus a humble contribution of US$15,000 towards this noble society.” On June 12, 2019, our Association members joyfully presented the award and gifts to Ms. Jane Pierantozzi and her team at Faithful Friends Animal Society. “Dear Ms. Pierantozzi, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to Faithful Friends Animal Society the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for nurturing kindness towards and protecting animals. This Award is presented in recognition of the shelter’s noble advocacy to end euthanasia, its commitment to shelter and lovingly care for animals. Your exemplary efforts herald a new era of empathy and harmonious co-existence with our precious animal friends.” Ms. Jane shared with us these final thoughts before we parted ways. “I just want to thank You again, the Supreme Master and Your organization for Your love of animals and for Your gracious award today and the grant award that will help us with our mission to care for the animals. Also we’d just encourage other animal shelters across the world that care for dogs and cats to also open their heart to care for all animals and to embrace the plant-based diet, which we are promoting here.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue

Fifty miles (80 km) northwest of New York City, USA, lie the 230-acre (93 hectare) lush and charming Skylands Animal Sanctuary & Rescue, home to more than a hundred farm animal friends. The sanctuary founder, Mike Stura, used to be a truck driver and found new meaning in life by providing rescued animals a loving home. Over a year ago, Brianna, a pregnant cow courageously kicked down the door of a moving truck to escape a cruel fate. A call from the police at the scene woke up Mike and he immediately rushed to collect her. At the safety of the sanctuary two days later, Brianna gave birth to a healthy baby girl calf, Winter. Upon learning of this news, our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai tearfully offered the Shining World Compassion Award to Mike Stura and Skylands Sanctuary, “plus a humble US$15,000 contribution, with all love and gratitude in God’s mercy.” “Dear Mike, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to you the “Shining World Compassion Award” for the love and dedication shown towards animals, providing ‘a place for them, a place for hope’. You are nurturing kindness within the community and creating a brighter future for all of Earth’s co-inhabitants. We humbly present this Award in recognition of the haven you have provided, rescuing, sheltering and ensuring our precious animal friends have a forever home.” “For benevolently striving for a loving world for all beings, and for your gentleness and untiring kindness, we hereby applaud and celebrate the great compassionate deeds of Mike Stura. May God bless and protect you and Brianna’s family, as well as the kind police involved. With Great Honor, Love and Blessings in God’s Grace Supreme Master Ching Hai” “This is very, very nice. It's very cool. Thank you, Supreme Master. I don't know what to say. I'm touched. I’m moved. I'll try to do my best. Thank you for choosing us to support. I appreciate it tremendously and I appreciate the work that you do, to spread compassion and the word of a vegan lifestyle to the world. It's fantastic! I really thank you very much. Thank you.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Mrs. Gia Trần – Spreading Happiness Through Benevolent Deeds

We are in the presence of an extraordinary person who braved all the weather conditions there are to devote part of her day to doing a task that is pure devotion for others. Immigrating to Vancouver, Canada in 1980 from Âu Lạc (Vietnam) as a single mother of four young children, Mrs. Trần spent a decade supporting her children by cleaning apartments and motels. Wanting also to help the needy and contribute to her community, she started collecting cans and bottles as a way to raise funds. Every day for over 21 years, Mrs. Gia Trần, has dedicated herself to scouring the streets of Canada, collecting bottles and cans for up to ten hours a day. These are then cashed in for as low as five cents a bottle. Rather than keeping her earnings herself, she donates most of it to the needy and various charities. Over the decades it is estimated that Mrs. Trần has contributed more than $15,000 to the B.C. Cancer Foundation alone, where she visits daily. Known as the angel of East Hastings, Mrs. Trần brings a smile to everyone’s face with her pure-hearted cheerfulness. “I want to help people. I love people. I have money; I help cancer [patients]; I help big hospitals; I help the children’s hospital. I want to help [homeless] people.” Deeply touched by her altruistic deeds, Supreme Master Ching Hai presented Mrs. Gia Trần the Shining World Compassion Award, and a loving contribution of USD $20,000. “Dear Ms. Trần, It is with much admiration and gratitude that we present to you the Shining World Compassion Award for your timeless devotion to help cancer victims. This Award is presented in recognition of your outstanding humanitarian efforts to simultaneously help clean our environment and provide assistance to patients in need."

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Surf Coast Wildlife Shelters Group

Today, we are travelling to Victoria, Australia, to meet Tina Lawrence, the President of Surf Coast Wildlife Shelters Group, a remarkable non-profit organization dedicated to helping wildlife animals. Their mission statement is: “To protect, rescue and rehabilitate sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife and to release these animals and birds back into their own habitat.” “Ten years ago, myself and my family moved down to the Surf Coast. We realised that there were very few people who were able to rescue and care for animals.” “There were almost no people along the Surf Coast doing rehabilitation and taking these animals into care to care for them. So that was the point of which I decided to look for a way in which to become more involved.” “The set up for caring is very involved. So you have to have a range of equipment, foods and other things to be able to do this properly.” “Every single species of our wildlife is critical and performing an essential function in our ecosystems. It’s critical that we protect them, in order to protect our ecosystems and biodiversity.” Our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present Tina Lawrence and Surf Coast Wildlife Shelters Group the Shining World Compassion Award plus US$15,000 with joy, gratitude.” “We are very, very grateful to be acknowledged by the Supreme Master. The work that you are doing in promoting compassion and supporting groups like ours is absolutely wonderful.” After receiving a report about the award presentation, Supreme Master Ching Hai sent “another US$20,000 to lovingly further this noble engagement. With all love in God's forever embrace.”

Shining World Protection Award Recipient: Redefine Meat – Advancing Vegan Food Technology, Part 1 of 2

Shining World Protection Award Recipient: Redefine Meat – Advancing Vegan Food Technology, Part 1 of 2

Today, we honor Redefine Meat, an Israel-based start-up company which utilizes 3D printing technology to produce realistic plant-based steaks. The company’s revolutionary approach brings alternative meat to a whole new level. Made from natural, sustainable sources, their cruelty-free steaks closely replicate the appearance, texture and flavor of animal meat. Mr. Eshchar Ben-Shitrit, founder and CEO of Redefine Meat, started his company with a vision to make a positive change in the world. “The vision of the company is to replace meat. So it’s not bringing 3D printing to people’s home. Because if you look at an industry that has a problem, the food industry has many problems. What’s the biggest problem for the food industry, for the world? Animal as a source for food. What’s the biggest issue within? That is beef. So we want to have a platform that solves the problem that we need beef to make steaks. People want to buy meat, so we are giving them meat. We’re not giving them dead animals. If the meat can come from a different source, everybody will be happy to serve.” “But unfortunately or fortunately, most people in the world did not decide to stop eating meat. They still eat meat every day. And this is the market that we need to educate. But we need to serve them a different kind of meat.” With great mainstream appeal, Redefine Meat is cruelty-free, healthier, has 95% less environmental impact, and will be more affordable than animal meat when it reaches the market. “We have no cholesterol, and this is easy. When you look at an animal, when you slaughter an animal, people don’t understand that you have food pathogens that exist in a cow, and it’s almost impossible not to have them go to your meat. In our case, we don’t have any of these pathogens.” “But in April this year, we served over 200 dishes as meat to people that didn’t know that it’s meat, in restaurants and in a hotel.” For their outstanding innovation, Redefine Meat won the 2018 Food Accelerator Network Program competition. “So it was sort of, the starting point of us not only being a technology company, but a part of this food technology movement. Smarter companies in the meat industry, they embrace this innovation. So instead of saying, ‘What you’re doing is not meat, I am, I’m doing meat for 500 years, it’s our tradition.’ He says, ‘I have a know-how on how to get meat to chefs, what chefs want.’ You have a new kind of meat, let’s collaborate. Instead of competing, let’s collaborate.”

Shining World Protection Award Recipient: Redefine Meat – Advancing Vegan Food Technology, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue our interview with Mr. Eshchar Ben-Shitrit, its founder and CEO. Mr. Ben-Shitrit talks about what motivated him to work towards a vegan world. “So, here is a famous writing about the vision of vegetarianism and peace. Essentially what he says is that, all human beings are morally corrupt; and because we are morally corrupt, we eat animals. But the first stage for peace in the world for the Messiah to come back, it was to stop being morally corrupt. And the first step is to be vegetarian. This is something I really have passion for. We’re, doing amazing technology, very complicated with many challenges. But we're doing it in a place that has an impact on the planet, on the future, on possibly what world I’m leaving for my son. But it’s also fun and tasty.” After hearing of their amazing work to encourage the planet-saving, plant-based diet, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present the Shining World Protection Award to Jet-Eat, (now known as Redefine Meat) with a humble contribution of US$20,000 towards this fantastic project. With big, happy praises, and best wishes for success in Heaven’s abundant blessing.” “And accompanying the Award is this crystal plaque. I’ll take a moment to read it. For Redefine Meat, formerly known as Jet-Eat. In Recognition of Ingenious Eco-Friendly 3D Printing of Vegan Nourishment Brilliantly Creating a Solution for Instant, Tasty & Nutritious Food Reducing Carbon Footprint and Saving Our Planet With Compliments and Gratitude For Outstanding Environmental Protection Efforts Presented by Supreme Master Ching Hai” “How nice is that? Right? So it’s really exciting. So it was very emotional, and really... To think that there’s somebody sitting literally in the other side of the world, as I said, that thinks about how they can support, how they can tell people, ‘Well done! Keep up what you are doing!’ It’s really nice. And then we learned a little bit about the Supreme Master and all the work, and looking at how you promote an idea through food. Food is very intimate, you put it in your body. So promoting an idea through food is very powerful.” Congratulations, Redefine Meat! We are excited about your work and wish you continual success in God’s protection.

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Al Larson – The Bluebird Man

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Al Larson – The Bluebird Man

Bluebirds symbolize wealth and prosperity and are also seen as spiritual messengers that herald joy and prosperity. If a bluebird appears in your life, it is believed that you will be successful, happy, and your family will enjoy good health. In North America, due in part to increasing nesting competition from other species, these little birds declined in population between the 1950s and 1970s. Fortunately, there have been some people who worked tirelessly to help bluebird populations recover. In southwest Idaho, United States, lives 96-years-young A Larson, lovingly known as the “Bluebird Man.” Al was one of the first citizen scientists to dedicate time and effort to preserving these precious birds. He now travels more than 5,000 miles each summer to monitor bluebird nest boxes he built and installed across five counties in the state. Here is our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai’s response upon learning of his amazing life-work. “From Supreme Master Ching Hai for Al Larson. Bluebird Protector, Wildlife Photographer. In Recognition of Life dedicated to the Protection and Conservation of Bluebirds, Inspiring Kindness, Nobility, and Nurturing the Community Spirit. With Compliments and Gratitude for Your Compassionate and Benevolent Commitment to Saving Precious Animal Lives.” She cheerfully presents Al Larson with the “Shining World Compassion Award” as we mentioned, plus US$15,000 for his love filled noble work in God's mercy. “I just want to thank the Supreme Master for the attention that She has given to my endeavors. " " I guess all I can say is thank you, again! It’s something that I had never ever dreamed of."

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries

Founded by vegan animal lovers, Mr. David Walker and Ms. Dwynwen Jones or DJ, the Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries consist of the Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary in Worcestershire and their sister sanctuary, Wiccaweys Rescued Border Collies and Working Sheepdogs in Laughton, UK. Wiccaweys is a non-profit, no-kill sanctuary that rescues abandoned and abused dogs, rehabilitates and gives them basic training before finding them forever homes when possible. They also provide free advice and lifetime support to new human caretakers. Once a dog enters Wiccaweys, they become a permanent family member whether they stay or go to a new home. Wiccaweys has found forever homes for thousands of rescues. Upon learning of this beautiful organization, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly offered Goodheart Animal Sanctuaries the Shining World Compassion Award and “a humble US$15,000 gift towards this humane endeavor in Heavens’ mercy.” “May you, all involved and under your care enjoy happiness and safety in God’s love.” “Thank you! We are incredibly honored to be receiving this award from Supreme Master Ching Hai, and we are very touched by Her kind words in recognizing the work that we do here at Goodheart in providing a safe haven and a forever home for our residents. Thank You also for Your very generous donation! This will help us to continue to care for our residents here at Goodheart.”

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Saving Animals From Euthanasia, Part 1 of 2

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Saving Animals From Euthanasia, Part 1 of 2

Our precious animal companions are often our best friends and beloved family members. As much as they depend on us for care and protection, they also fill our hearts and homes with abundant joy, love, and blessings. Yet sadly, not all dogs and cats find themselves in loving forever families. In Australia, approximately 211,000 animal companions end up in shelters annually with nearly 44,000 euthanized. Founded in 2003 by Sue Hedley, Western Australian group Saving Animals from Euthanasia (SAFE) is an animal welfare organization dedicated to ending animal euthanasia through rehoming solutions for crowded shelters. "SAFE’s mission is to ensure that no companion animal succumbs to euthanasia purely through lack of somewhere to stay and that the optimum quality of life is achieved for all companion animals." Ms. Sue Hedley believes that finding loving homes to foster our animal friends is a more practical, cost-efficient, and humane alternative to isolation in shelter cages. "When I started SAFE and realized what the need was, I never thought for a moment of building a big shelter and putting animals in cages. It was just autopilot for me to go straight into the foster care way of operation. I knew there was endless homes. Anyone can foster. It doesn’t have to be a lifelong commitment. In fact, we encouraged people just to give it a go, just a one-off time can save a life. So no cages, no buildings, no cost of staff, cleaning, food. Our foster carers generally are happy providing food. So, it’s a really low-cost model and so humane. An animal can be in care with SAFE for a year and it’s no different to whether they’re in a permanent home. They just end up with a family as they would be. So it’s just a win-win for everybody really. SAFE focuses on matching pets with people. Due to the possibilities of foster care, there’s no urgency to adopt pets, but rather it allows time for the right match to be made. When pets can be viewed or discussed at length by phone or photos or even videos, potential owners can get to know the pet’s personality, rather than visiting an institution to view animals in cages, where their future is uncertain. How better the choice the adopters are likely to make, knowing that any pet they view or inquire about is going to stay in a loved home until a well-matched permanent home is found. No more pity or guilt-based decisions."

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: Saving Animals From Euthanasia, Part 2 of 2

SAFE’s model of placing animals in foster care while waiting for a permanent home has many benefits for all parties concerned. SAFE provides neutering, vaccinations, and microchips as well as personalized matching services to better address issues such as overpopulation and animals getting lost, mistreated or abandoned. “SAFE doesn’t judge pet relinquishment, but is more concerned about finding a solution and doing what is best for the pet. Often we find it is the circumstance force relinquishment and we can take action and offer support to enable a very grateful owner to keep their pet. Upon providing behavioral help, temporary care, or even transport to another state, the potential cost in logistics involved in preventing a forced relinquishment is very small in relation to the cost in logistics involved in taking on and rehoming a pet. And by doing so we assist in a positive outcome for both people and their pets.” Upon hearing of their life-saving deeds, Supreme Master Ching Hai gratefully presented “the Shining World Compassion Award to SAFE and a humble contribution of US$20,000 for this noble and smart cause, with so much love and thanks, in God’s mercy.” “Dear Sue, It is with much admiration and gratitude that we present to SAFE the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for ‘saving animal lives – challenging the norm through fostering.’ This Award is presented in recognition of your zero euthanasia, no cage policy, cleverly utilizing foster carers until a permanent home is found. Your exceptional endeavor is creating a time when pets will no longer be institutionalized, only kept in loving home-based care. For your kind and creative loving solution, for your vision, wisdom and selfless commitment, and for being a dedicated and noble role model, we hereby applaud and celebrate the compassionate deeds of Sue Hedley, Founder & President of Saving Animals From Euthanasia (SAFE). With Great Honor, Love and Blessings in God’s Grace. Supreme Master Ching Hai”
