Mr. Aylam Orian is a devoted animal rights activist, who founded and directs the organization Our Planet. Theirs Too. from the United States. The non-profit group’s noble work is to enlighten people about their unconscious biases and oppressive attitude towards animals. Aylam is also the founder of the National Animal Rights Day (NARD), an annual event celebrated in many cities around the world in June.

“NARD functions mostly as a memorial day for animals. So we commemorate the billions and billions of animals that die every year by human hands and we honor the individuals that we sometimes have with us, the deceased animals that we have. We also commemorate their millions, billions of brothers and sisters that are lamenting at the same time in labs and circuses, farms, and slaughterhouses in factory farms.”

Aylam talked about his vision which he strongly believes could be accomplished in the near future. “I have no doubt in my mind that the world, will go plant-based one day. People will realize that it's wrong to eat animals. They will realize how damaging it is to the planet. Our vision is that the world's going to that direction, whether the world likes it or not. And we're just trying to expedite the process with our activism.”

Upon learning about his noble work, our Cherished Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Happily present Aylam Orian with the Shining World Compassion Award, with a loving gift of US$10,000 towards your noble organization, Our Planet. Theirs Too. With lots of love, praises and prayers for your success, in God’s Mercy.”

“Dear Aylam, It is with great admiration and gratitude that we present to you the ‘Shining World Compassion Award’ for passionate activism, constantly striving to safeguard precious animal lives. This Award is presented in recognition of your visionary, altruistic benevolence, advocating for a vegan world where all beings share our bountiful planet in Divine bliss.”
