The starfish story
By Loren Eisely
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it back into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The boy 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.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realise there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then smiling a the man, he said… “it made a difference for that one.”
Just like the starfish story, sometimes we just need someone to take notice, someone to care, someone, to do something to help.
At Carecoins we believe in treating each individual as the individual they are, and take each new individual as a unique opportunity to help them to realise their full potential, we might not get to meet everyone out there needing support, but we are here ready to help the next person we do.
