You've heard of public service spots? Little Pearls are public uplift spots. They surprise with their authentic messages of love, understanding, and communication -- in contrast to the sales-rush and truth-distortion of many ads. They're a breath of fresh perspective.

Little Pearls provides a visual medium for inspiring and thought provoking cinema that will add to you day and life. I've had the honor of sharing these little films with hundreds of families in the Asheville and surrounding area. Thank you for the vision to provide these "Little Pearls". As Tony the Tiger says they are grrrrreat!

Once our world was totally filled with commercials that were self serving and xxxx. Now thanks to "Little Pearls" we can breathe a little easier, not feel bad about looking for the good in people, and take a moment to enjoy and enrich our hearts and souls. The art work and cinematography are breathtaking, the message clear...love each other, from the heart, harm no one or thing and cultivate peace.

i was watching commercial TV and a Little Pearls ad came on a major network.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the lack of these ads to generate income for someone.

When I first experienced the "sampler" of Little Pearls I was moved to tears and inspired so deeply that I felt compelled to find a way to support this incredible organization. The vision of these heart-opening pieces being on television gave me hope that not only could that media be uplifted, but also the hearts and minds of millions, just as mine had been. The sensitivity, awareness, and deep compassion reflected in the themes and production of each little pearl leaves the one watching profoundly present, moved to a sense oneness with all creation. If ever there was an effort worth supporting, Little Pearls is it!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

realize the dream of revolutionizing the deadening commercialism of television. Corporations who would sponsor Little Pearls instead of commercials would win much sorely needed public good will!

I am moved by the work of this organization. Its video shorts are like commercials for...well, for all of the things that should have commercials but don't. They are reminders of the special people and emotions in our lives that don't have their own endowments, special interests or campaigns. Ironically, there just isn't any profit in lifting up friends and emotions strictly for their own sake.

More feedback...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring people who are passionate about their cause and who appreciate their supporters -- even the ones who can't donate a lot.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world (or at least our city!).

I have been so impressed with the clear intention, dedication and creativity of the two founders of this amazing project! They were both inspired by their dreams and have managed to effect change in the hearts and minds of any who have viewed their short, but oh so powerful little films. Perhaps change is not the right word, because what these little masterpieces do is touch a part of us which has so often been buried under the weight of the "news" that we are bombarded with. They speak to the part of us that resonates to love rather than fear. The variety of films they have produced so far on such a limited budget attests to the vast potential of Little Pearls if properly funded. Messages sent from children in NC to children who lost parents in the 911 attacks... messages from farmers in NC to those in Great Britain during the "mad cow" epidemic .... pearls about animal rehabilitation, kids playing violins while their dog "sings" along...pearls about the wonder of a baby and the beauty of the aged ... you must go to the web site and view them all!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that feel-good feeling i get each time I view a "little pearl".... they feed the soul.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

actually pay staff, get great equipment, make all the films currently existing in the vision of the founders (plus all the new ones they would be sure to dream up), hire staff to do PR and seek new venues, reach the masses, achieve their potential!!

As an educator and researcher in new media and digital technologies I first encountered Little Pearls at a Media that Matters conference and was not only impressed with the quality of their work but also with its sensitivity to their subject matter. I continue to follow the development of Little Pearls and admire their ability to succinctly represent matters of the heart which touch us all in one way or another.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

afford the kind of production equipment that would only improve their ability to produce high quality "pearls"; that is, with digital cameras, editing equipment and a studio, Little Pearls would be able to develop their social and cultural portfolio.

The simplest things in life are often the most profound. These "little" things, unencumbered by too much information, can reach right into someone's heart and change attitudes, actions, and feelings. The Little Pearls films do exactly that. I have been so moved, so touched by these short videos that I am convinced the world would be a better place if more people could view them.

The Great!

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

being given insight into the lives of others less fortunate than mine.

Little Pearls distills truths to a pure communication heart to heart. Each one tells a story within sixty seconds. They remind us of our connection with life, and they do so with wit, words and images that linger in the mind. I have played a demo containing a half dozen Little Pearls to many people. Always they catch their breath and smile: more than not there are a few tears.

The Great!

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

I have known Linda McLean, founder and director of Little Pearls, since she created and dedicated herself to this project. I have been profoundly impressed with the love, skill and tenacity it has taken to maintain the intention, never losing focus.

Ways to make it better...

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

Fund them !

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the end results, creations that redefine what public service spots can be, moments that effect awareness.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated...Creative..In love with life in all its expressions, winged, two legged, four legged.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Deeply influence the collective consciousness.

Ways to make it better...

I saw them on national TV

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Of course, money that could provide staff and equipment to take the next steps.

One thing I'd also say is that...

People change the world when they remember that we are all in this life together. Little Pearls nudges that memory with gentle and skillful power.

Little Pearls make me laugh, make me cry and lift me up ... They remind me of our essential nature, which is good, and in these wild times, I believe all human beings need help remembering that. Little Pearls reflect the best of ourselves back to ourselves. They are tiny films that open hearts and minds. And they are one of the most lovely mindful creative use of multi-media that I know ...

The Great!

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

schools, on TV, all over the internet, at churches, in festivals (including featured on the opening night) and even at memorial services.

Ways to make it better...

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

Make sure even more people knew about them so even more financial support would come in the door than ever ....

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Both the high aesthetic and production values of the Pearls themselves along with uplifting meaningful content (not always a combo in modern media ...).

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

excited, passionate, kind, inclusive, and interested in the well being of all life.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a loooooot more Pearls (they have millions of good ideas), pay a core staff (who mostly have worked for free since day one across many years), and fund more programs to teach young people how to make Pearls/ learn to use multi-media well.

Ways to make it better...

I was able to see them even more often than I have ...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding in these times ... they are extremely resourceful and every penny is used resourcefully ... they just need more pennies (and nickles, dimes, quarters and lots and lots of dollars) ...

One thing I'd also say is that...

There is no other non-profit like them that I am aware of.
