You may have heard the story of a little guy throwing starfish into the ocean. An over night storm had swept millions of them onto the beach and he was throwing some of them back in.
An impossible task but nonetheless the little boy was trying to help out. A sarcastic passer by said to the boy, “Boy you are wasting your time. Do you really think you are going to make a difference?” At that the little boy picked up another starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He then turned and said to the passer by, “I made a difference to that one.”
The story has a simple message you can’t change the whole world, but any seemingly little thing you do for another less fortunate will make a difference to them. This Christmas as millions of dollars are raised through Band Aid’s “Feed the World”, why not consider getting involved too by financially supporting a less fortunate citizen of the world through a reputable agency like CARE or the Red Cross. For a few dollars a month you can “make a difference to that one”.
We take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and happy new year and we look forward to bringing you some more exclusive articles and media about Michael in 2005.
God bless you all from Susie, Jacqui, Mario and Ian.
