Hitting lottery?  From the Philippines: Jonine and her siblings have made a generous donation to Smile Train ( to “hopefully creating a smile or two”.

Indeed, it does create a few big smiles. They are overjoyed when they have received their personalized Grand Duke talismans and snapped this picture.  These are smiles from the hearts.

One good deed can neutralize numerous negativities” (一善解百恶) is a popular Chinese saying.  Linking a charitable deed to a Grand Duke talisman will help generate positive energy around you and protect you from both spiritual and physical harm.

The average number of talisman requested this year is three per order.  Examples of donations are:

  • Smile Train
  • Feed My Starving Children  (
  • Food Bank
  • Abandoned Children (JMA Foundation in Mexico)
  • Save the Children– Spain 
  • UNICEF- to help Syria Children

You can still get Grand Duke talisman blessed specially in your name  from me.  Check my previous blog on who should get GD talisman for 2013. Below is info on how to order:
