Starfish Malawi

I often quote starfish Malawi when I talk about what I do: A father and his son were walking along a deserted beach after a particularly high tide had washed up thousands of starfish onto the sand. The boy started picking them up and throwing them back one by one. The father quizzed his son saying, “You can’t save them all, there are million! You can’t possibly make a difference.” The boy smiled, bent down, and picked up another starfish and as he threw it back into the sea. He replied, “ I made a difference to that one.”
