The Goldman Family - "Eat the Change You Wish to See," Part 2 of 2

Having gained valuable experience working at Beyond Meat, Jonah saw the opportunity to begin a new vegan fast food restaurant concept, and together with the family, they conceptualized PLNT Burger. "We want to be a business for 'good.' We want to create a culture of designing businesses that benefit people, that benefit animals and the environment." "And what our mission is at PLNT Burger is to help people transition towards a more plant-based diet, to create a more just and equitable plentiful food system for all, and a healthier planet for future generations." The first PLNT Burger outlet opened in 2019. PLNT Burger is positioned as a “casual-fast food restaurant,” featuring vegan burgers with Beyond Meat vegan burger patties, as well as their own unique creations. Four stores were opened in the first nine-months of operations, riding on the power of Whole Foods Market as a strategic partner location. PLNT Burger keeps all the dishes very affordable to the masses, and has been receiving tons of positive public responses and appraisals. As a young entrepreneur, Jonah shares his strong beliefs and urges the next generation and society as a whole to act now and be the change we wish to see at this urgent time for our planet. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Goldman family, founders of Eat the Change and PLNT Burger, the Shining World Compassion Award, with all love, respect, and best wishes for your continued success. May your noble path be paved with God's immense blessings and grace.”

The Magic Elixir of Health with Plant-Based Dietitian Julieanna Hever (vegan), Part 1 of 2

Across medical fields worldwide, more health practitioners are turning to the plant-based diet solution to help people to improve their wellness and treat diseases. Among them, is Julieanna Hever, a registered dietitian from the United States. She is the author of four books, has published two peer-reviewed medical journal articles, and is the nutrition columnist for VegNews Magazine. Her powerful TEDx talk impacted hundreds of thousands of viewers. “I just so passionate about nutrition and I loved it. And I found out, wow, you can actually get protein better from plants, and you can get a better source of iron from plants, and all of those questions that I was concerned about previously, I was completely satisfied and completely comfortable to switch myself over to a plant-based diet. And then I started implementing it with my clients and the differences in their results were literally night and day.” “Everyone feels better eating a plant-based diet. They notice a quicker recovery, so it’s a wonderful way to boost your performance naturally without any supplements or substances and it’s just a really healthy way.” “It’s a tome of facts and we synthesized a lot of information in our ‘Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition.’ So, it’s really like all the whys and all the hows in an easy, digestible book.”

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 2 of 3

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 2 of 3

After watching the documentary “What the Health” and becoming a vegan, Tabitha regained her health and positivity. As a woman of faith, Tabitha received the message to share what she was eating via videos, which she is still doing to this day, with great success as unexpected opportunities presented themselves. “But I honestly feel like, ever since I've been on this journey, it just started shinning brighter. I truly believe I’m on assignment. I started this journey to save my life, but now, I’m helping to save other people's and I think that's the amazing part of it, so it definitely brought my spirituality and my assignment together and I cannot deny that, and I love it.” Having been raised in a Christian family, Tabitha feels that eating vegan is what was intended for us, just like food from the Garden of Eden. “I believe that we are supposed to eat from the land, and I believe that eating from the land heals us. I know it healed me. I don't judge anybody for their belief, but you have to believe what your body tells you.” Since becoming a vegan, Tabitha’s spirituality has flourished. Being so vibrant, she creates soulful, timely and welcome positive-mindset messages for her social media followers, whom she refers to as her “family.” “Because life is peaks and valleys, ups and downs, and we have to focus on knowing that the ‘up’ is coming again. And that's just how I live my life.” “If I lead by example and I do it with love, it’ll change the mind of people, because if you get somebody’s heart, then, they'll listen to you.” Tabitha Brown’s light shines brightly, and her powerful messages of self-love, self-compassion, kindness and resilience are a treasure for everyone.

Emma Hurst – Unequivocal Voice for the Animals, Part 2 of 2

Once elected to Parliament, the Honorable Emma Hurst presented a powerful inaugural speech that has been applauded by people around the world. “My promise to the animals is this: You have all of me. The lioness in the circus, I see you. The pig in the sow stall, I see you. The mouse in the medical experimentation facility, I see you. The fish crushed at the bottom of a trawler net, I see you. I know you’re suffering, and I will never be silent. I will push forward, no matter what life throws my way, because the cruelties inflicted on you must end, and I will do all I can to see that happen.” Ms. Hurst’s inaugural speech has touched many people’s hearts and has inspired audiences worldwide to be courageous and motivated to march on the path of compassion and veganism. We, as a society, are ultimately responsible for the ways in which we treat all cohabitants. To that end, Emma is a proponent of transparency within the animal industries. And the more Ms. Hurst speaks candidly about the plight of animals everywhere, the more people are sitting up and taking notice, even those who seem unlikely to do so.

Matthew Appleby: Passionate Organic Vegan Gardening

Matthew Appleby: Passionate Organic Vegan Gardening

The interest in vegan horticulture and gardening has expanded exponentially, as more people become aware of how typical methods of growing plants and crops involve the use of environmentally damaging synthetic chemicals and practices that harm our precious animal co-inhabitants. "I’m Matthew Appleby, I’m editor for 'Horticulture Week.' I first started about 20 years ago being a vegan. I realized this was quite a sort of doable way of living. What motivates most people to become vegan is because they care about animals. And they care about the environment. And they care about their health, and it’s a combination of those three. Vegan gardening is gardening without exploiting animals. So, it’s using homemade composts and fertilizers, rather than animal composts and animal-based fertilizers. It’s also gardening with wildlife in mind. So rather than exploiting animals or trying to attract animals, it’s leaving the animals to do their own thing on your plot. It’s also gardening for vegan health. So, I’m interested in growing what’s nutritionally right for a vegan. I make vegan compost just the same as anyone else is making compost. You can have your kitchen scraps, your grass cuttings, leaves, you can have any leftover vegetable matter, but you just don’t use anything that’s animal-based. So, you don’t use anything which is from a farmed animal and you wouldn’t chuck in your eggshells, and you wouldn’t chuck in meat anyway because it basically doesn’t compost well, and it attracts rodents. I don’t dig, and I think it’s really common in a lot of areas of gardening now, and non-vegan gardeners increasingly not digging. And that a lot of people see this as a really good idea because you don’t want to disturb the layers of the soil because you know you create erosion, you break up your beneficial animals’ homes. So, I plant covered crops. Hopefully they’ll break down and put some nitrogen back in the soil, get some organic matter back in the soil which will create quite a good sort of soil crumb." Our appreciation Matthew Appleby, for your dedication to assisting gardeners to attain healthy and ecologically-sound green spaces. May the Heavens forever bless you! We hope to see more of your work in the future. Best wishes for your noble prospective endeavors!

The Fry Family – Crafting Food for Change Since 1991, Part 1 of 3

The Fry Family started creating simple yet tasty meat alternative recipes in their own kitchen in South Africa, back in 1991. “All life is precious, and I could live without sacrificing the life of another. I become a vegetarian and set about creating a meat alternative.” “Principle before profit” has been the mantra of the Fry Family since its beginning. They measure their success by the amount of animals’ lives that are saved with each purchase of a Fry’s product. "The brand has become a legacy on its own and it’s definitely not about me; it’s about the combined effort of so many enthusiastic people." Thanks to a great working team spirit and family love and support from all family members, The Fry Family Food Co. has become a force for change around the world, helping millions of people transition to a vegan diet while contributing immensely to saving the animals.

Building Communities through Veganism with Nitin Mehta MBE, Part 2 of 2

Mr. Mehta also points out that not only helping our fellow humans but also our animal companions is actually helping ourselves. “So, it’s actually very funny but we are doing no favors to animals. We are actually doing favors to ourselves by being compassionate. Because by the law of karma, every action has a reaction. So, human beings cannot say, Oh, this is our planet and we continue enjoying whatever we do and keep exploiting animals, who also are a part of this planet. They have a share of this planet. And when you do that by the law of karma, it will hit you back and it will hit you very badly. So, when you have wars, when you have cyclones, when you have hurricanes, these are ways of God and nature showing that you, human beings, haven’t learnt how to coexist with the other life forms that you share with.”These are very wise words spoken by Mr. Mehta and echoed time and again by our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, who recently expressed great concern over the retribution caused by humans’ killing karma. “Oh, you’ve seen the news that the black hole has made a noodle out of the star. (Yes, Master.) This is a real thing. (Wow.) Because this star has been doing evil deeds. So it’s a punishment. (Wow.) A black hole is hell. (Oh.) It’s a physical, visible hell. (Ooh.) (Yes, Master.) And anyone, any planet, any star, any celestial body, if it has done anything badly, and it accumulates too heavy, too long, then it will go there (Wow.) to receive the retribution.” In 2008, the Young Indian Vegetarian Society acknowledged Supreme Master Ching Hai's advocacy of vegetarianism all over the world and having a 24-hour TV channel promoting vegetarianism and compassion to animals. They awarded Her the Mahaveer Award with the inscription on the award reading: “Your compassion for all living beings is as deep as the Ocean. You have inspired people all over the world to become Vegetarian and Vegan. Your absolute and deep love for animals is a message to the human race to give up violence and become compassionate. Just as Lord Buddha showed the right path to the human race you are showing the right path so that our planet and future generations can survive in peace. We salute you.” Eleven years later in October 2019, Supreme Master Ching Hai made a donation of US$10,000 to The Young Indian Vegetarians in appreciation of all their noble endeavours. Mr. Mehta was very touched at the thought of being recognized for all the peaceful activism the society does for our world’s precious animals…

Glenn Ratcliffe (vegan) – The Complete Actor with A Mission, Part 1 of 2

Glenn Ratcliffe (vegan) – The Complete Actor with A Mission, Part 1 of 2

We are excited to present to you the journey of the accomplished, charismatic and multi-dimensional Hollywood actor, writer, and producer, Glenn Ratcliffe, who has traversed the full spectrum of roles spanning a 30-year career transforming him into the complete actor he is today.The childhood dream of success as a soccer player was soon shattered when Glenn sustained a broken ankle followed by three more fractures. While living in San Francisco as a construction worker, Glenn was inadvertently asked to attend an “Improv” class that quickly revealed his latent acting abilities. “In the seed of adversity there’s a seed of a gain; there might be something better for someone there, even though they’re so focused on being successful in something. If they don’t do it, it's because maybe there’s a higher calling.”Over time, with deepening meditation and spiritual exposure, Glenn realized that diet played a fundamental and crucial role in spiritual progress. “The veganism, it’s very important to me because, human nature, you could come back and be reincarnated into an animal, an animal you could be eating could be a human last time. So not only is the meat putrefied when the animal is killed, because it sends a signal to the nervous system that putrefies the meat, and the digestive system can’t digest it. It's killing the body, and it’s lowering your spirituality, and bringing karma upon you.”While busy fulfilling his Hollywood dreams, a real-life drama intensified his spiritual evolution. On route to the set he was acting on, Glenn was rammed directly side on by a speeding car running a red light. Life, it seems, had abruptly ended as Glenn’s soul began its journey out of the body. “There was a sense of fourth dimensional consciousness, and then I popped into the Sun. And I just expanded in consciousness, for that split second of Godhood. But that one experience had a profound effect of my immortality, because I know when I die, that's where I go into Light.”

A Vegan Visionary: The Life of His Excellency Laurent Lamothe, Part 2 of 3

His Excellency Mr. Laurent Lamothe assumed the position of Prime Minister of the Republic of Haiti right after the 2010 earthquake. In doing so, he witnessed firsthand the biggest natural disaster tragedy in the history of the Caribbean caused by extreme weather due to climate change. Years later, he was invited to the Monaco Better World Forum 2019, to share his experience in rebuilding the country as Haiti’s Prime Minister. His stance to protect our precious oceans is well-known, as was his leadership in Haiti with the banning of all importing, manufacturing, and marketing of plastic and foam containers (polyethylene and polystyrene products). His Excellency pointed out the importance of having a working strategy and his choice of being part of the solution by being vegan. His Excellency also indicated that the vegan solution should be made known worldwide to people across all spectrums because we are in extreme urgency right now. Talking has to turn into action. "What not to do as a government. So, we truly need citizens to be aware (of it). Not just at the level of government, but at the level of civil society, at the level of foundations, at the level of non-governmental organizations in order to work in unison.” “I personally am a vegan. So, I’ve already taken that step." "So, applying the Paris Accord would be the first thing for governments, and of course, that’s on a global scale. On the local scale…locally, is to give benefits, is to give credits to companies that are doing so. So, incentivizing companies and, ultimately is to encourage the shift also, to new solutions.” “Fight on the demand, fight on the price-based competition, so that the plant-based might be less expensive than the animal-based. On top of what I said before, which is the subsidies, which is lowering the pricing, which is incentivizing demand, which is competition, which is really raising awareness." "I think, that’s very important because the lobby is where the legislation will get shifted and get changed or will remain in the status quo."

Serving the World without Harming Other Beings – Farmer Sivalingam Vasanthakumar, Part 1 of 2

Kumar was born in Sri Lanka and spent his childhood working on the family dairy farm. He has since worked on various livestock farms, and in 2010 set up his own sheep farm in Devon. Although Kumar liked his career, he could not bear the pressure involved in the process of taking his animals to the slaughterhouse. Once his daughter, a livestock veterinarian, asked him what he planned to do with his lambs, he decided on the spot to end the animal farming he had been doing for 30 plus years. “And I said to Molly: ‘No, that is the end of it. I would not take them to the slaughterhouse. I need to find a sanctuary for them.’ which was a great relief for me.” “So, there’s no regret at all. It was a wonderful thing I have done.” He keeps 70 ewes for himself as pets and enjoys the joy and peace this brings knowing he’s made the right decision. “And also, it’s time for all of us to do something for the planet and for climate change and eat more vegetables and make sure that this planet is there for our future generations.”

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 3 of 3

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Through prayer, Tabitha received the message to share with others what she was eating as a vegan. Adopting the plant-based diet reversed her debilitating, mystery illness that had left her largely incapacitated for nineteen months. But upon reflection, Tabitha noted that there were other signs showing that eating animal derived foods were causing her harm. Regarding a plant-based diet, Tabitha wisely suggests, “Know your why” for going vegan. From personal experiences, she knows how many health benefits can come from the vegan diet and the immense impact to one’s life. Tabitha is also a very creative individual, from acting, to creating T-shirts, and even designing stunning waist capes for women called “Capeable by Tabitha Brown.” Tabitha is also a comedian, and has been cast in many films, including the multiple award-winning “I Am Still Here,” “Laughing to the Bank,” and others. “Listen, without art, it's a cold world, honey. Art helps us escape. It helps us dream. It helps us see things in a different way. Art is everything, like our life is art.” “Art is laughter, it is tears, it’s emotion, it’s everything that makes the world go around and without it, it’s a dark place. So I feel like, I'm living art, that's kind of how I live my life, I'm expressive. You know, I'm full of laughter and smiles and art is love, and that's definitely the best part of me, is the love. When you spread love, right? Like you’re smiling now, ‘cuz I'm smiling, right? That's art. So, my artistry is contagious. So yeah, I love it. Even as an actor, I love comedy.” Supreme Master Ching Hai has spoken on several occasions about artists and the importance of art in our lives, as in this conference with Aulacese (Vietnamese) artists in 2018. “The artists are the ones who bring a lot of mental and physical comfort, a lot of happiness, a lot of joy, to the people in this world. An artist is someone who comforts our spirit, and is indispensable in this life. Why don’t we thank them? We should at least have gratitude.”

“Live Fashion, Walk Compassion” – An Interview with Israeli Fashion Designer Liat Lahav (vegan)

The talented Mrs. Lahav and her family reside in the bustling city of Tel Aviv, Israel. Liat’s transition to a vegan lifestyle was met with the typical challenges of customary habits and beliefs, but in her heart, she knew that a compassionate lifestyle must be led by example. "Well, my name is Liat Lahav. I launched SHANILI from passion for animals, compassion and love, and I called my brand 'Live Fashion, Walk Compassion,' because it’s fashion, first it’s fashion, and everybody loves fashion. And I wanted to show people and not only vegans, all people, that you can buy fashion and beautiful things that doesn’t need to have anything from animals. I’m using different kinds of microfibers. It can be like a suede, and really leather-like, like smooth leather. And until you see it and touch it and wear it, you can’t understand and believe that it’s not leather. It’s exactly the same. And it’s very good material. It’s synthetic. It’s very easy to process it. And it doesn’t damage the Earth, like the leather does. And especially, you can reproduce them because it’s synthetic. So, it’s recycling. So, it’s only a win-win situation. My dream, and this is my vision and my first purpose, is to bring the opportunity for vegans, vegetarians and anybody else who doesn’t want to consume animal products, to bring them the fashion into their lives. I’m all the time announcing that SHANILI is the pioneer for the vegan fashion revolution. And I’m working to get there. And so, I’m asking everybody here in Israel and outside Israel, if you know how you can help me to achieve that, and to bring the vegan fashion to the world, just I’m here. I’m open to hear everything and to make different kinds of collaborations, just to end this suffering from our world." Compassionate Liat Lahav, we thank you for your noble endeavors to bring a Heavenly way of life to God’s children on our precious planet. We wish you growing success and pray others will follow your animal-friendly example to Live Fashion, Walk Compassion.

Brooklyn Borough President, Mr. Eric Adams, and a Plant-Based NYC, Part 2 of 2

Meatless Mondays is only the beginning. Mr. Adams has a much bigger vision for the youth, for his city, and for the world. “There's no reason we cannot have rooftop gardens in all of our schools, while children can grow their food and then serve it down in their cafeteria. We need to get all meat out of our schools; all cheese, all dairy products, all milk out of the schools. I think it’s so important that we engage in the real conversation about climate change and not try to sugarcoat the issue. The real culprit is overconsumption of meat, the overconsumption of beef. We were successful here in New York City, where we got processed meat out of our schools and a 50% beef reduction, but we need to go further. We’re saving not only Molly the cow but Dolly our child.” He also saw that community support is an important factor for success in the transition to a plant-based diet. “Building the community is so important. That is why every three months, we hold a vegan, plant-based meet-up here at Borough Hall, where several hundred people come out and they interact with each other. They talk with each other.

Tal Gilboa: At The Forefront of Inspiring Israel's Vegan Movement, Part 1 of 3

Ms. Gilboa has become a celebrity at home and abroad through her numerous initiatives for bringing awareness of raising animal livestock and for encouraging everyone to adopt veganism. As one of the most influential animal-rights activists and key resource on veganism, Tal Gilboa was appointed as the Animal-Rights Advisor to the Prime Minister of Israel. Witnessing the ordeal of a mother cow served as a key moment for Tal Gilboa. She reflected on how best to honor a parent’s responsibility to children in terms of clear and honest education regarding animals. “And what I did was to take them all, the three of them, to farms. I wanted them to to watch the truth. Now I could say the truth to them by my knowledge, the calves are in these little cages, because they’re separated from their mothers. This is what I did and they changed because of that." Tal Gilboa's noble example and bold actions have reached farther than her whole family's turining vegan; she has also influenced many others within her country.

Going Meatless with Kristie Middleton (vegan) - Transforming the Way You Eat and Live, Part 1 of 4

Going Meatless with Kristie Middleton (vegan) - Transforming the Way You Eat and Live, Part 1 of 4

Kristie Middleton is the Vice President of Business Development at Rebellyous Foods, and former senior food policy director for the Shining World Benevolence Award recipient, Humane Society of the United States. Certified in Plant-Based Nutrition, she is also a nationally renowned speaker. “After starting to do some research into factory farming, that's when I learned that, despite what I thought when I was a little girl, the real problem with eggs was that we factory farm hundreds of millions of animals, confining egg-laying hens in what are called battery cages. These are cages where there are 6 to 8 birds confined in the space that's about the size of a standard desk drawer where they can't do any of their natural behaviors. I didn't know that to produce pork, we confined mother pigs in what are called gestation crates. They can't even turn around for the duration of their existence.” For several years, Kristie was the senior food policy director at the Humane Society of the United States. “There we worked with institutions like colleges, universities, hospitals, the military, essentially anyone that serves a lot of food, to help them identify opportunities to add more plant-based options to their menus.” Not only a working professional, Kristie is also the author of “Meatless: Transform the Way You Eat and Live ‒ One Meal at a Time.” “For example, if you want to become vegan, then maybe trying to designate a certain food that you typically enjoy and swapping out a plant-based option for that instead. Another thing is to actually articulate your goals. We’re 42% more likely to meet our goals if we share that with somebody, whether it's a friend or family, or we even write it down.” “We can make a tremendous impact on the world by going meat-free, even just one day a week. It would have the environmental savings of taking half a million cars off the road if everyone in the US went meat-free just one day a week. If we ate “meat-free” just one day a week, we will spare 1.4 billion animals from factory farms.”

Monk Coleman (vegan) – From Alleys of Darkness to Highways of Enlightenment, Part 1 of 2

Monk Coleman (vegan) – From Alleys of Darkness to Highways of Enlightenment, Part 1 of 2

We are so happy to feature the colorful life of vegan bodybuilder, life-style coach and meditation instructor, Monk Coleman, previously known as Joe Coleman. Mr. Coleman’s story paints an arc from difficult beginnings as a directionless young man who got entangled in addiction and the criminal world, to rediscovering and trusting his inner voice, guiding him to become the compassionate, vibrant vegan success he embodies today. Before fully adopting his new name, Monk underwent some profound changes in his consumption habits. Over time and through meditation, he discarded all unhealthy practices, including eating meat or any other animal products. After he stopped eating meat, Monk felt sure that he was no longer hurting anyone. A few years later though, when he started to notice the word “vegan” appearing more often during his research into vegetarian bodybuilding, he began to dig deeper, only to discover the sad truth about the processes behind other animal products, such as eggs and milk. In a 2019 motivational clip for Shining World Compassion Award recipient, Mercy For Animals, Monk shared his experiences of meditation, becoming vegan and plant-based bodybuilding. “Basically, through my meditation practice, I became reconnected to all life and didn’t want to do any harm to any other beings, and at that moment, I became vegan.” Mr. Coleman, an IFPA (International Federation of Physique Athletes) Pro and WNBF (World Natural Bodybuilding Federation) champion in Natural Physique, attributes his success in bodybuilding to the tried and tested characteristics of consistency, hard work, commitment, as well as his switch to the plant-strong diet. Monk said: “It was about one year after turning vegan that my body started to change some. I got leaner, healthier, more energetic, and I healed quicker. It felt good.” Monk recommends the following to people wanting to go vegan today: “My advice for anybody that wants to go vegan is to do some research. There are all kinds of good information out there. There’s nothing bad about going vegan. In fact, just the opposite, it’s a win-win-win, for the animals, your health, and the planet.”

John Oberg (vegan) – A Voice for the Voiceless, Part 1 of 2

Let’s start by hearing how changing to a vegan diet altered John’s perspective on animal cruelty. “The decision to stop eating animals and to become vegan was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. I did it because I didn’t want to contribute to animal cruelty anymore. I’ve definitely felt like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders, and it’s been a beautiful thing. I feel like I can now live in confidence knowing that my actions from day to day aren’t causing unnecessary animal suffering, because if I’m not willing to cause harm to an animal, why should I pay someone else to cause harm to an animal?” “Most people consider themselves animal lovers, and most people go through their day, day to day, eating animals. And they go through their day, day to day, not thinking about the impact that that has. But what you, and me, and many of the viewers here today understand, is that through our food choices alone, we impact dozens, dozens of animals every single year. Hundreds, or probably thousands, potentially even tens of thousands over the course of our lifetime.” Next, John shares with us his approach to using social media as a successful tool to create awareness for the plight of our animal friends. “I look at the treatment that farm animals face in today’s world as something that is legal, or that is just absolutely cruel and unbelievable, but it’s legal and standard practice. There’s a lot of reasons for that, most of them surround money, and so what farm animals experience in 2020 in today’s world, is absolutely awful. The plus side is, the vast majority of people don’t know, so that gives us an opportunity to raise awareness and to talk about what farm animals are experiencing.” “Social media really provides us this incredible opportunity, whether it’s us as animal advocates, or other people fighting for other causes, social media allows us this great opportunity to spread the word, to raise awareness, to advocate in a way that humans had never been able to advocate before. In the history of humankind, we’ve never been able to send messages in an instant, to any corner of the globe in an absolute instant, in massive numbers day in and day out.”

The Soulful and Exuberant Tabitha Brown (vegan), Part 1 of 3

Today, we are delighted to introduce Tabitha Brown – an actress and vegan influencer who has amassed over 3 million followers on the social networking platform, TikTok. She is also a popular content creator on YouTube, a brand ambassador for Whole Foods Market and all things plant-based, and an extraordinary vegan cook. Buoyed by her effervescent energy, charming voice, and her soulful encouragement, TikTok fans have referred to her as “Mom” or “Auntie” and send her messages of thanks for making them feel loved and comforted. Tabitha made the transition to a vegan diet after experiencing a lengthy period of ill-health. Fortunately, Tabitha’s daughter, Choyce, came home one day with some information that would radically change Tabitha’s life. “My daughter came home from school - teenage daughter - and she said, ‘Mom, you have got to see this documentary we watched at school called “What the Health”.’ So, we all together watched it, my husband and my daughter - and I was like, ‘Wow this is interesting!’ But the thing that got me was when they said that diseases are not hereditary; it’s that we’re eating the same thing causing the same disease.” “When I looked at everything, ‘meat’ was the common denominator. And so, I told my husband, ‘Let’s do a 30-day challenge.’ I’m going to take meat out of the diet. And the doctors couldn’t tell me what was wrong. Every test I would take, ‘Oh, it’s normal!’, but why am I still feeling sick?” To her surprise and immense relief, after nineteen months of debilitating pain and fatigue, the vegan diet was the key to restoring her health, and giving Tabitha her life back. “And so, we decided as a family, to do a 30-day vegan challenge and on day 10, my headaches went away. I was walking through my kitchen and I was like, ‘my head ain’t hurting.’ I started feeling better from that day. I started getting my energy back, I started just feeling like myself again. On day 29, I told my husband, I said, I think this is my path, I’m going vegan.” Tabitha’s sincere faith in God, guided her from ill-health to become an internet celebrity with millions of followers and the success that she could never have imagined. It’s as our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai has explained regarding Matthew 6:33 in the Holy Bible: “Once God takes charge, once God awakens within you, everything else will be taken care of. ‘Seek you first the Kingdom of God, and all the things shall be added unto you.’ (Matthew 6:33, The Holy Bible) That's what it really means.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present the Shining World Vegan Influencer Award to Ms. Tabitha Brown, with all love and gratitude. May God forever protect and bless you.”
