Despite all the loss and grief inflicted by the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the world have taken actions to spread joy, strength, and healing where it is most needed. SOS From the Kids, a children’s choir from the United Kingdom, became famous for singing about the climate crisis on Britain’s Got Talent. The choir has been honored with a Shining World Hero Award by Supreme Master Ching Hai. During the lockdown, they recorded another song, “Stand As One” via Zoom for all the healthcare workers on the front lines. The proceeds of this song will be given to NHS Charities Together & “Masks For NHS Heroes.” In British Columbia, Canada, 6-year-old Callaghan McLaughlin set up a “drive-by/walk-by joke stand” at the end of his driveway, offering free laughs to lucky neighbors and passersby. He said, "There's a lot of stress in the world, and I kind of want to get some smiles on people's faces." On top of spreading joy and positivity, many children and teens have held fundraisers and donation events for good causes! Tony Hudgell, a five-year old boy with prosthetic legs from the United Kingdom, has raised more than £1 million for the hospital that saved his life. Despite having both legs amputated, Tony was determined to walk 6 miles (close to 10 kilometers) to fundraise for Evelina London Children’s Hospital for saving his life. He was recognized by Supreme Master Ching Hai as a Shining World Compassionate HERO Award laureate. Four siblings from the Pilkington family in Australia, used their own money to donate gift bags to doctors and nurses. Inside each gift bag, they also put their own loving poem to encourage “Superheroes in Scrubs.” These kids generously share whatever they have with others. What a blessing to have so many angels grace our planet.
