The Starfish Story

A man was jogging down the beach after a major storm had just come through the area. He was dismayed by the huge number of starfish that the storm had washed up on the beach. He thought that there was nothing he could do because of the immense numbers. As he continued down the beach he saw an old man throw something into the water. As he got closer, he saw the old man walk a little farther down the beach, bend over, pick up a starfish and throw it back into the water. As the jogger approached, the old man stopped again, bent over, picked up another starfish and was about to throw it into the water. The jogger stopped and asked "Why are you doing that? There are thousands of starfish on the beach. You can't possibly make a difference." *

The old man looked at the starfish, threw it back into the water, then replied, "I made a difference to that one, didn't I?"

I know that shaving my hair might sound like saving one starfish, but I know doing so will touch upon a life of at least one girl. Same thing that we ask of you; a $5 donation might seem a small amount, but your $5 will mean so much to someone and their family battling against cancer. So please join us to make the difference.
