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.

The Great!

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

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.

Little Pearls reminds me that life is best lived with respect, faith and gratitude. LP's films may by "tiny," but they have a big impact upon our community. I'm a dog lover, so I especially like the heartfelt dog pearls. I also like the way LP uses local talent (human, dog, owl, etc.). Very inspiring and uplifting messages, beautifully rendered by the skilled LP creative and technical team -- pearls of hope in a sea of challenging times.

The great and growing response of so many people in our community (and beyond) to the video messages Little Pearls creates. It is inspiring to see the range of emotion evoked by these "tiny films."

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

Provide a larger and more stable funding base so that the creative director doesn't have to wear so many hats.
