Today, we would like to introduce to you a compassionate young girl named Addisyn Goss, and her family from Michigan, USA, who go out of their way to share with those in challenging situations. Addisyn has been successful in running the nonprofit called, “Snuggle Sacks - Resources for the Homeless” with the help and support from her mother Stacy and stepdad Andy, sister Sheridan, and brother Jaxson. Their grandpa’s plight touched the tender hearts of Addisyn and the rest of the family, and inspired them to jump into action. “We took to social media, our own personal pages, and just asked for donations of about 15 different items of things they would need.” “We started off with 52 sacks, and the reaction that we got was people cried, because they got the socks and gloves out of the bag, and it was just shocking how they cried. I’ve never seen that before I did it. And that inspired me to do more. But now we average about 1,000 a month, and it’s just shocking how we grew in 5 years of doing this. I mainly handle the volunteers and what they do. They call me the CEO, which I don’t think of myself as one. I just handle the volunteers that come in and help them. But my sister does all the social media and my brother, we call him, the logistics guy; he lifts stuff, talks to the shelters who need more, and finds out where it needs to go and tells us. Now we have our own warehouse where we can have volunteers come in and help us assemble them. We have volunteers distribute them too.” “We have three set nights each week that we will have assembly nights, and we’ll just throw out a sign up on our social media sites and have groups sign up. Many times, it’s companies coming in for team building, or it’s a local Boy Scout troop, or Girl Scout troop, or sports team, or school. But we never lack for volunteers. That’s something we’re very, very fortunate to have.” They have also inspired many in their community to do the same. We hope that you have been touched too, so you will work to help someone in need as well.

Ameliarose also told us about writing her first song at age 6, and how her compassion for the animals and the Earth is the driving force behind her music. She supports the vegan movement in many ways, including playing her music at vegan vestivals and being a representative for Vegan Teen.net. Ameliarose, do you also promote veganism as a way to save our planet？“Yean, Well, I think we only have one planet and we’ve been destroying it very, very badly. And I think that if there’s any way we can combat the effects of that we should try.” “I think it just felt really natural to be vegan. And so, it was really easy to just kinda keep it going. And obviously I’m passionate about the environment and the animals and stuff like that. So, that was definitely a motivation for me too.” That was fabulous! We also hope Ameliarose's message of - to be who you are and be proud of the challenges that you have overcome, will benefit you. Her compassionate example will inspire more people to adopt the compassionate vegan diet.

That’s right, when we sneeze or cough, we should always cover our mouth, or sneeze and cough into our sleeve. This will prevent our friends from getting ill. That’s the first tip of cleanliness. You should also make it a habit of washing your hands when you enter your home to prevent spreading germs that you may have come into contact when you were outside. This will also help to protect your family and friends from getting sick. 1) Wet your hands 2) Lather with soap 3) Rub your fingers 4) Rub your knuckles 5) Scrub your fingernails 6) Lather for at least 20 secs 7) Rinse your hands 8) Dry your hands. We have to be careful of each step, so that your hands will be free from germs. But sometimes washing hands is not enough. After a day out and about, going to school, or running around, we can get really dirty and smelly! What should we do? That brings us to tip number three, which is… taking a bath or shower. The fourth thing we should do is brush our teeth in the morning, in the evening, and after each meal. Supreme Master Ching Hai has shared these useful tips on how to brush our teeth properly. “Brush carefully, or teeth will decay. Not like this. This way. And brush your tongue as well. Since we are talking about tooth-brushing, let me tell you one more secret. Don’t use too much toothpaste.” Keeping our environment clean is the next essential step. Our living spaces include our bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and our work areas. When we walk into a clean and tidy room, we feel peaceful and calm, while stepping into a messy room can make us feel agitated, right? We are affected by our environment, and our environment is a reflection of us. Supreme Master Ching Hai explains more. “My work, you see how I take care of the environment. That gives you the idea, okay? That's how you learn to live your life, the way you want. But it's just an example of beauty and cleanliness. Because that represents Godliness within you. That represents Heaven.” Lastly, when there are too many unhealthy viruses, like COVID-19, flying around, we have to do something extraordinary to stop it from spreading, by wearing masks when going outside. Remember friends, the six good habits of cleanliness, 1) cover ourselves when sneezing or coughing, 2) wash our hands with soap, 3) take frequent baths or showers, 4) brush our teeth, 5) keep our environment clean, and 6) wear a mask when necessary. Let’s keep ourselves and our living spaces clean and beautiful. If everyone will do it, we might just turn the whole world into a clean and beautiful place!

At the end of the previous episode, the dolphins sounded an emergency call for Penny the Penguin. Defelia and Jazzy wanted to join in with the rescue. They climbed onto the dolphins’ backs for a quick ride to Penny’s location. As Defelia and Jazzy were taken up to the surface, they found Penny the Penguin lying on the rocks, all tied up in fishing lines and ropes. “Penny is very lucky she didn’t drown. Just look at her injured flippers, she needs them to maneuver in the water. All this fishing business is not only hurting the sea animals, it is also dangerous for other animals.” The sea animals need our help. We can do so by stopping our consumption of sea animals, and adopting a plant-based diet; we can avoid using plastic bags and start using reusable bags. Defelia and Jazzy said goodbye to Penny the Penguin. Jazzy looked at all the pictures she had taken in her camera. “Defelia, I think I have enough pictures to take back with me. I’d better get back to shore.” “Thank you for coming with me, Jazzy, but before you go, I need to take back the magic shell so you can be human again.” “Bye, beautiful friends. Bye, Defelia, I will miss you.” That’s the end of our adventure with the brave mermaid, Defelia. Now, let’s meet the author of this story and hear what she has to say about it. “Hallo, my name is Renata Halpin, and I am from Brisbane, Australia and I am the writer of the three-part mermaid under the sea series on Supreme Master Television. I wrote this series for children, because I love children, and I want a vegan world and I want children to know what is going on with our animals in this world and what’s going on under the sea.” Renata, the author of this story, is a very loving musician too. She cares not only about the health of our ocean, but also the wellbeing of children. Let’s enjoy another song from her. “Two fruits, five veggies, to keep your body healthy. Two fruits, five veggies, thumbs up, it’s easy.”

Using her magic, Defelia turned her into a mermaid temporarily, so that she could use her underwater camera to take photographs. They hope that these photos will show people the devastating effects on the ocean and the sea animals caused by fishing activities and polluting rubbish. “What is that?” “It’s a giant trawler net. This is a kind of fishing net with weighted rollers and heavy doors that’s pulled through water by boats. Millions of people up there eat seafood. Every day, many of my friends are caught by these trawler nets. They’re dragged by big ships, taken to shore, then end up on the humans’ plates. We have been living in constant fear because of it. What’s more, sometimes these heavy trawler nets plow through the ocean bed, leaving nothing alive behind. Did you know that we fish and other sea animals are needed here to keep the ocean life in balance?” “This part of the sea is now called an oceanic dead zone. It’s caused by human pollution. The pollution takes oxygen from the water. It not only hurts sea animals, it also hurts our beautiful coral reef, home of many of our fish friends.” Defelia and Jazzy swam up to the surface. It’s raining up there. They poke their heads out of the ocean from behind some rocks. There, they see lots of farmland filled with grazing animals like cows, sheep, chickens, pigs, and goats. The pouring rain washes all the waste into the river which eventually ends up in the ocean. “You see? The pollution mainly comes from livestock animal raising. There are millions of animals that are raised for human food on earth. Their waste is hurting the reefs and our sea friends. It is called sewage and agricultural runoff.” “Oh Defelia, all this news makes me feel so bad. We have to let people know about this as soon as possible. Eating animals is destroying the ocean and our planet. We have to stop it.” This adventure has been quite an eye-opener for Jazzy, and for all of us watching it, hasn’t it? We have learned that if we stop eating animals and change to plant-based food, we can save the fish, the coral reefs, and restore the health of the ocean.

Family members have been invited as guest speakers to many conferences, and have been profiled in the mainstream media. Their compassionate deeds have earned them many awards and recognitions. Addisyn Goss was featured by the USA Today newspaper for being an exceptional American. All three children were recognized by the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness and the Martin Luther King Foundation. A state senator gave a Certificate of Excellence as well! “I was on the board of directors for KidBox in 2018 and they gave us US$10,000 worth of clothes and US$1,000 to give back to our community and help the homeless, homeless kids, because KIDBOX is a subscription clothing company for the kids. I rented out a storefront in the Genesee Valley Mall here in Michigan and we just bussed people, kids from different shelters. And they got to come shop a little bit and we had people donate food to us and it was a really cool experience getting to see how kids felt about getting new clothes and what they could do with them.” Another super thing is that Snuggle Sacks has set up tiny pantries throughout communities. These small wooden boxes are stocked with food and personal care items all the time so that the people in need have access 24/7. In addition, Snuggle Sacks is reaching homeless people far away from its base in Fenton, Michigan. “If everybody just did a little bit, imagine how wonderful this world would be. So it’s nothing ever too small or too big as long as you’re doing something, moving forward to help somebody else. It’s amazing! Not only just for her but like your siblings and everybody in the community, how people have rallied together and it’s a good story.” Snuggle Sacks is more than one family’s endeavor, as it has become the community’s noble cause. Upon learning the loving deeds of Snuggle Sacks and the inspiration behind this non-profit, Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Happily present the young lady Addisyn Goss with the Shining World Compassion Award, plus US$10,000 for daily necessities and vegan snacks to support her loving organization Snuggle Sacks. May you and all involved be forever blessed by the Divine.”

Today we are meeting with Bob Love, owner of the vegan online store “ETHCS,” and YouTuber from London. His YouTube channel is called, “Family Freedom,” and it features his plant-based family going on all sorts of adventures! Together with his wife Katie, and their three children, JoJo, Jamie, and Sam, Bob has travelled all over the world to places like Miami and Paris, while enjoying delicious regional vegan foods in the process. Bob and his family work together to find delicious vegan food wherever they go! “We didn’t have many challenges in the foods or adopting the lifestyle. It’s more with the people. I find that you expect people to adopt it and receive it in the same way that you did. We thought people like our friends and family, they’re going to get it, but they didn’t.” “I think you have to recognize that you don’t need them to accept it. If they are your friends and family, and you’re just simply letting them know a change you’re doing in your life, and it doesn’t have to affect them.” Bob highly recommends using websites and documentaries, in order to help those close to you, understand why you have made the decision to be vegan. “If there are other people who are vegan, connect with them. Whether you can, in real life go out together, or online in forums, do that because it’s like a support forum with each other.” “Not only be positive in the way we communicate, but be a positive example. Keep yourself healthy, so that’s a good example to them. Be happy as well. As long as you’re positive, you’re eating good food, you’re showing off good aspects of the lifestyle, creating a persona which they can essentially be attracted by and want to adopt that lifestyle.”

Climate change is accelerating. The United Nations report warned of global warming causing emissions that come mainly from animal livestock. The livestock industry is responsible for greenhouse gas emissions that are more potent than that of all cars, trucks, boats, airplanes, and trains in the world combined. A worldwide shift to an animal-free, vegan diet would reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by more than 80%. If the world goes vegan, there will be so much positive change, for the animals, the environment, and human health. The ice is melting fast. Go vegan now. "See Quinton, this is the best thing we could do with our fame, to show humans the truth. This will be all over the news, and everyone will see who they are eating, and hopefully change their diet to include only plant-based foods." "We don't belong in the zoos, We belong in the sea. In the Arctic, we live usually so happily, But climate change is changing, melting our lands so quickly. There is a solution, It's really so easy, Be Vegan, We promise it will help all earthlings The animals, the health of all the human beings The environment, the oceans and all the cute fishies. Be Vegan, Be Vegan, earth needs your helping hand. Climate change is melting all of our ice lands. It's the best solution, for you and for me Be Vegan, Just eat fruit and veggies."

In our first 2 parts, polar bears Quinton, and his single dad Tangakwunu were captured by a fishing boat. They were sent to a zoo, where they met their caretaker, Kate, who is a vegan animal lover. In order for the public to realize the dire situation that the animals in slaughter houses are facing, they escaped and traveled to a slaughter house. What are they going to do next? "This event is really to raise public awareness about the impact of veganism on the climate crisis situation." "Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of time. More researchers are now saying that the Arctic ice could be gone entirely, not by 2050, but in four or five years. We are an inch away from the point of no return, and we desperately need the mighty influence of governments and the media to change the outcome. It is threatening our only home, the planet Earth, and we must save it for ourselves and our future generations." "The event held last week, ‘Be Veg, Go Green, 2 Save Our Planet’ has sparked demonstrations in major cities throughout the world, urging government leaders to take actions immediately to stop global warming. They are also demanding every government in the world to convene at the United Nations before it is too late." "During the 11th Emergency Special Session, all meals served will be vegan. A resolution has been approved and passed. That's more than two-thirds of all member nations." "Slaughtering and consuming flesh is unbecoming to human dignity. We must embrace a nobler way of living. I've witnessed what goes on inside a slaughterhouse. Some may say there is a humane way of slaughtering animals, but there is no such thing as a humane killing of ANY being. The word ‘humane’ cannot be accompanied with ‘killing’ or ‘slaughtering’. We animals have emotions, feel pain, and fear being killed. Dear Benevolent Humans, saving the animals will save yourself and our planet. Sincerely with love, Tangakwunu on behalf of your co-inhabitants."

Haha! Would you like to learn some interesting games that kids from different countries have been playing? Welcome to our show, “Come Outside to Play with Us.” The first game we would like to introduce to you is a traditional game called “Egrang.” To play this game, the participants each need a pair of stilts made with bamboo. The participants then must perform different tasks while using the stilts. Dancing and racing are some of the most common tasks. This game can train the participants to balance, walk gracefully, and build courage. Another one is called rangkuk alu, or tinikling. which is a traditional game played by people in Indonesia, the Philippines, and other countries around the world. It is a form of traditional dance involving two or more people beating, tapping, and sliding bamboo poles on the ground. They compete against each other in coordination with one or more dancers, who step over and in between the poles. There are a lot of benefits to spending time in nature either to play or just hanging out. A study conducted in the UK concluded that after spending time in nature, most children showed improvement with their school work, and became more capable of taking on challenges. As a result, they felt more confident in themselves, and had better relationships with their classmates and teachers. The great scientist, Dr. Albert Einstein, said, “Play is the highest form of research.” Play is the vehicle of children for learning, exploring, developing new skills, and connecting with others. Recent research also indicates that spending time in nature may bring other physical and mental health benefits. Exposure to new environments boosts our immune system, which means we won't get sick as easily. Sunlight provides vitamin D and boosts happiness. By playing outside we can also acquire blessings, along with positive energy from trees, grass, and all the plant life surrounding us. Supreme Master Ching Hai has also mentioned the spiritual blessings we can receive from Nature. “The sun cures your aches and pain, it eliminates toxins through sweat – when it’s hot, you sweat – and also it cures some of the diseases or other ailments. The sun gives benefits to all, bad or good. The sun would glorify the whole Earth that we live on and it gives life to all beings: plants, minerals, animals, etc. The sun gives also people happiness, carefree feeling. The sun is necessary for all on Earth.”
