12-YEAR-OLD BOY CREATES MUSIC VIDEO ON BEHALF OF SHELTER ANIMALS 

A video created by a 12 year old for the Baltimore Humane Society is being shared around Baltimore and the internet.  Maxwell A. F. Sternlicht, a student at Gilman School, filmed and produced the video single-handedly in an effort to help homeless animals find loving forever families and to encourage volunteering at the no-kill shelter.  The Pikesville youth explains, “I was inspired to celebrate the good work of Baltimore Humane Society and to get people to volunteer and donate.”

The video stars staff, Board, volunteers, adopters, and of course, Baltimore Humane Society adoptable animals.  In just a few short days the video has had almost a 1000 views and has been shared on various sites including The World Animal Awareness Society. (Press Release by Baltimore Humane Society)

A children&#8217;s book inspired by murder: the 25th anniversary of &#8216;The Great Kapok Tree&#8217; 
"“The Great Kapok Tree” was written by Lynne Cherry in response to the murder of Brazilian environmental activist Chico Mendes, who was assassinated by a rancher in 1988 in Brazil. Mendes’ murder was a significant international incident galvanizing support for environmental activists working to protect the Amazon forest.  In “The Great Kapok Tree,” a young person enters the Amazon forest to cut firewood. One young boy falls asleep. While asleep, the animals “talk” to him, explaining why forests are so important for our world. The young boy wakes up, considers the animals’ messages, puts down his ax, and decides to no longer cut down trees.  “The Great Kapok Tree” initially received a mixed reception by critics. Yet, within a couple of years of publication, it became one of the most influential conservation-themed children’s books of the last 40 years.&#8221;
