Compassionate and Caring Acts that Make a Positive Difference: The Shining World Award Recipients, Part 2 of 2


We are going to journey to Sheffield, United Kingdom to meet nine-year-old Tobias Weller, who has cerebral palsy and autism but raised money for charity by walking up and down his street for weeks. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Lovingly present Tobias Weller the Shining World Compassion Award, and US$10,000 in loving support of your caring cause, with a big hug, much love and gratitude for your generous heart and dedication to helping others. May you be graced in Heaven’s light and protection, always.”

The next Shining World Award is to honor an organization from Canada, which continues to adopt canine friends despite COVID-19. Fly with Me is a nonprofit based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, that finds homes for dogs that would otherwise be euthanized. The organization’s founder, Nicole Doria, arranges for four-legged friends to be flown from anywhere in the world to Canada’s Maritime Provinces, to join a welcoming family. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Touchingly present the Shining World Compassion Award to Fly with Me, along with US$10,000 in loving support of your benevolent work saving lives, with lots of love, praises and gratitude. May Divine blessings and protections forever shine on you, all involved and the treasured dogs you help, in God’s boundless mercy.”

A conservation group in South Africa are honored with the Shining World Protection Award. The African Pangolin Working Group (APWG), a nonprofit dedicated to the conservation of pangolins, released seven Temminck’s pangolins to a wildlife preserve, in the country’s KwaZulu-Natal Province, where they had become extinct three decades ago. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Thankfully present the Shining World Protection Award to the African Pangolin Working Group, plus US$10,000 in loving support of your devoted and caring work, with high praises and gratitude. May you and all involved be uplifted in Heaven’s blessings and protection.”

And now we journey back to the United Kingdom where another compassionate youngster walks to raise funds for hospital. Tony Hudgell of Kent in southeastern England, has walked a total of 10 kilometers on his new prosthetic legs with the help of crutches, raising over £1 million for Evelina London Children’s Hospital. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Tearfully present the Shining World Compassionate Hero Award to Tony Hudgell, and a US$10,000 contribution in loving support of your noble effort, with a big hug and gratitude. May Heaven forever grace and shield you, your family and all involved, in Divine benevolence.”

The last Award in today’s show is for 15-year-old Sarah Goody, the founder of Climate NOW, a climate organization based in San Francisco, California. At the age of 14, she started Climate NOW as a way to raise climate awareness for the youth in her community. She has spoken at schools and rallies about the climate emergency, attended political conventions, and appeared on podcasts and shows as a guest speaker. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully presents the Shining World Courage & Compassion Award to Sarah Goody, with all love and high salute for your precious work. May you enjoy continued success and constant protection by Heaven.”
