The government of Japan, a Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Animal Protection and Generosity laureate, has pledged approximately US$821,000 to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to help South Sudan strengthen measures against the virus. More than 50% of the funding will be used to improve access to clean water and hygiene, such as hand soap supplies. The contribution will also be used to teach about risks and involve communities in prevention methods, with a focus on protecting girls and women. Our heartfelt gratefulness, Japan, for your compassion. May the citizens of sunny South Sudan be shielded in Heaven’s blessings.
Scientific study shows that human beings are generous in a variety of circumstances.
Research conducted by sociologist Dr. David Melamed and his colleagues at The Ohio State University in the United States found that people choose to help each other, no matter what motivations may influence them. Scientists have previously determined several motivators for generosity, such as returning someone’s act of kindness, giving to someone who was nice to a third person, and paying a kind act received forward to someone else. In this online study involving more than 700 participants, these multiple motivators were combined for the first time, to mimic complex real-life scenarios. Scientists were pleased to find that people still wanted to help others, even at a monetary cost to themselves. Thank you for your valuable findings, Dr. Melamed and colleagues. May humanity’s selfless, kind nature prevail evermore, in God’s goodness.

Hallo, virtuous friends, it’s Duney the Desert Tortoise! Others think I am so smart, that’s because I am vegan. It’s scientifically proven, well, you know it already. So go ahead, go vegan, be smart! Today, we are honored to have a tip from our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai: “You can save the outer fruit wraps such as these to cover other sensitive soft fruits when ripe and you’ve not yet had the chance to eat, cover your mobile phone extra when traveling, glass items when packing, any small fragile things when moving, etc… Be safe yourself; pray Heaven shield you. Love you a lot.” Our forever love for You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, and thank You for this resource-conserving recommendation. May Divine Godses always protect You. Thank you all for tuning in, and much love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all of us humans and all co-inhabitants alike. Now, the weather around the world!

Scientists discover way to make sustainable building materials.
Researchers from Flinders University in Australia have discovered a new kind of rubber polymer, created by mixing sulfur and canola oil at 180 degrees Celsius. The resulting powder can be used to make rubber coatings and tubing, for instance, or combined with materials such as recycled PVC plastic, unused plant fibers or sand, to produce various construction items such as bricks, concrete replacement and insulation. In the process, the polymer particles can also purify water. Such a marvelous green discovery, Flinders University scientists. In Heaven’s wisdom, may your research help move us ever closer to a circular economy, where all items are continually reused, for a tidier planet.
Young Canadian humanitarian walks to help others have clean water.
Ten-year-old Finley Johnston of Westport, Ontario, Canada has walked a total of 351 kilometers over several months and thus raised over US$3,100 for Canadian charity Ryan’s Well Foundation. Established in 2001 by another young Canadian, then six-year-old Ryan Hreljac, the foundation provides safe water and sanitation to nations in Africa by building wells. Finley’s journey was inspired after meeting Ryan and reading a book about the plight of children in other countries without easy access to water. After learning that many girls in Africa must give up their education and walk long distances to obtain water for their families, Finley became determined to help through his own symbolic walk, at times braving unfavorable weather conditions. God bless you, Finley Johnston. We salute you and Ryan’s Well Foundation for your dedicated and caring efforts for the less fortunate. We pray that all our human brothers and sisters will have access to necessities, in the kindness of the Providence.
Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Lovingly present the Shining World Compassion Award to Finley Johnston, plus US$10,000 in praising support of your benevolent efforts for others through Ryan’s Well Foundation, with lots of love and gratitude. May you and all involved be forever blessed in Divine protection.”
