Little Pearls is a genuine grassroots labor of love, providing touching and timely small films that inform, inspire and prompt people to think more compassionately about one another, creatures and the environment. The films are conceived, produced and shared on a shoestring budget and are remarkably beautiful.

I am a huge fun of Little Pearls whose commitment to creating short films that exemplify the best efforts of humanity and the animal kingdom are unsurpassed. This organization has produced these heart warming, meaningful videos that do more than inspire the human heart. They motivate one to reach inside oneself to step up to the plate and do something meaningful rather than check out by whatever means they so choose.

Give them more money to create more videos.

Little Pearls are tiny-yet-powerful films that have brought tears, laughter and a new way of seeing things to me and to so many others who have had the chance to experience them.

They can help to shift perspective by opening hearts and minds to the beauty that is everywhere in our lives.
Openness to new ways of perceiving and being is SO needed in our world now.

Watching just a couple of these "Pearls" can bring me back to a sense of balance when I need that. They inspire me to be my best self. I wish the whole world could see them!

My own heart and mind being opened, and observing the same thing when I've shared these "tiny films" that are so precious with all kinds of people of all ages.

Fund them MUCH more and bring in competent volunteers or paid staff to help them with outreach, etc. These Pearls need to get out into the world a LOT more!

I have experienced the healing power that Little Pearls has facilitated in our community regarding widely varying circumstances of challenge, pain and the possibility to transform such into a positive outcome. For example,they have produced a simply beautiful "Pearl" concerning Amanda Levesque, a young woman with serious physical handicaps yet great spirited determination to live her dreams. Such a great and inspiring example to put forth publicly in these days of mullt-faceted challenge. This story is of particular power for me because Amanda's Mother is a dear friend of ours and the "Pearl" is so empowering to Amanda and her family. Thank You !!

Very hard work by Little Pearls has led to a great community respect and appreciation. I have directed many of my healthcare patient to their work for inspiration that each person can truly make a difference.

They can use more funding, more public exposure and more volunteers to further their wonderful work.

I got involved with Little Pearls after meeting its Executive Director, Linda McLean, during another project, Linda McCartney's USA Garland Appeal. We worked closely on the media display material I provided and art auction.



She then invited me to see one of their films, "Dr.
Willie". I became a donor and Little Pearls allowed me to "adopt" the film for a year.



I was hooked. I had to see all of the rest of them. The film, "After the Storm" about Hurricane Katrina is a powerful statement regarding social justice. All of them have unique viewpoints.



When the Executive Director (ED) asked me to come to a focus group, I signed on. For the last two years I lived in Asheville, I gave thousands of dollars, hundreds of hours of time and advice. Even though I left 4 years ago, I am still in touch and give my advice on board governance, development, social media and other matters.

Everyone who sees these tiny films that move hearts and minds is deeply moved. They are filmed through the lens of humor, grace, respect, integrity and love. They feature real local people and animals sharing real stories.

I only wish their board was strong enough to engage their own and the global community to partner with others to become more sustainable.

We were very moved by the Little Pearls sampler when we first saw it four or five years ago. There's been a long drought where not many new Pearls have been made -- I hope that 2011 will mark the end of that era!

Little Pearls tell the stories of ordinary people who have done very special things for others or for the world, or, who have faced difficult challenges and rose to overcome them, or become better people, as the result of their struggles. These short videos are an inspiration every time I see one. They pack a maximum wallop in a minimum amount of time, and are excellent value for my donation to help with filming or screenings, or, for any idealistic person/organization trying to make this a better world for all humankind..

Little Pearls have been an inspiration to me. I have used them, with permission, in music concerts to add multi-media content. I have been continually impressed, and have enjoyed watching the emotional response of audiences to these moving short films.

I fully support this non-profit
and their mission; the world is better for having Little Pearls in it.

The Great!

the use of these videos in concert productions I've directed. Little Pearls have brought tears, laughter and deep appreciation from myself and our audiences.

like to see more Little Pearls! I realize this is ultimately a funding issue. I would like to see them receive more assistance in their fundraising efforts, perhaps with more volunteers, more fundraising events, or, better yet, more regular, large donors!

Little Pearls is a unique organization with a very special product. Nonprofits one and all try to get 'their"message out in some unique way. The first unique thing about Little Pearls is "their" message is "our" message as it is universal and ever changing, bringing us those stories that touch our lives and make us aware. Second it is their ability to tell such stories. The finished product is superior and as their name suggests each message is a little pearl that will speak to you and stay with you.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By sharing the Little Pearl site and stories I have been given a tool to spread the word on many messages.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find more outlets to market their messages even further.
