Everywhere in the world, we can observe and be touched by acts of kindness. People from all walks of life, faiths, and cultures extend themselves beyond the call of duty to help others unconditionally. Through their noble deeds, humanity as a whole is elevated. To commend virtuous actions and encourage more people to be inspired by their examples, Supreme Master Ching Hai has lovingly created a series of awards, including the Shining World Leadership Award, Shining World Compassion Award, Shining World Hero Awards, Shining World Inventor Award, etc., to recognize some of the most exemplary, generous, caring, and courageous people who walk amongst us. Let’s start by meeting a special therapy dog named Maggie. With astounding love and patience as her superpower, she became registered as a therapy dog to help those in need.
