Starfish Children's Shelter
The Starfish story

An elderly man saw a child standing on a beach throwing starfish into the ocean. Thousands of starfish, stranded by the outgoing tide, lay on the beach around them.

“Why are you throwing the starfish into the ocean,” the man asked the child.

“If I don’t they will die.”

The man looked around them, “but with all these starfish you can’t possibly expect to make a difference.”

The child picked up another starfish, tossed it into the ocean, and said, “it made a difference for that one.”
