Helping... one starfish at a time!

I remember hearing a story a long time ago about a young person walking along a beach that was covered with hundreds of starfish washed up during the night. Without the water, they would soon die. This young person was tossing them, one at a time, back into the ocean. Another person walked up and told the young person that the job was impossible – there were too may starfish – give up! – and then asked the young person “Why do you keep tossing them into the ocean?” The reply was “It makes a difference to this starfish.”

We can help others – sometimes just one person at a time – but we can help! Over the last few weeks, I have seen several opportunities to “toss a starfish back into the ocean” so I thought that I would share them.

Check out these wonderful Kochanie “My Love” Baskets that bless those in need:

And here’s a group of starfish lovers all in one place:

These are all just ordinary people who have a heart to help and they have moved forward to do just that - help. Where is your heart leading you? Grab a starfish and start tossing!

God bless,
Kathy
