How you can make a difference…

Most of us take for granted just how important the basic necessities of life are. When given the gift of confidence and a helping hand, people can heal, grow and become more productive. Your support will provide critical services that build the foundation necessary for children, single parents and struggling families to succeed.

The Starfish Story

by Loren Eiseley

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a person picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean. Approaching the person, he asked, “What are you doing?” The person replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.” The man said, “Don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!” After listening politely, the person bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then smiling at the man, the person said… “I made a difference for that one.”
