As a professor who teaches environmental and cultural studies, I use Little Pearls to demonstrate that positive storytelling is vital to creating sustainable and just futures. Little Pearls 'mini-films' are successful in creating powerful storylines and images within a very short time frame. The films remind us what is important in life, and in our communities, including how animals are part of our communities. I believe that, with additional financial support, Little Pearls should be produced with subtitles in many languages so that others around the world can enjoy them. [perhaps not the Sept 11 Pearls.]

Little Pearls are important sources of light, joy and hope in a world that often seems too dark, especially for young people.

The Great!

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

Little Pearls bring joy to me as well as to the students who see them in my classes. Young adults, especially those studying environmental and social justice issues, wear the weight of what is wrong with the world very heavily on their young shoulders. Little Pearls remind them of what is right in the world and that older adults are in the journey to make change along with them.

Ways to make it better...

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

Adequately fund it so that more Little Pearls could be made and distributed (especially with subtitles, as discussed above)

I have been loving Little Pearls - the folks who make it happen and the Pearls themselves - for several years now. The time and energy and thought put into the concept and production of every Pearl is amazing and so is the result. Any and all ways to get these Pearls in front of more people should be a top priority - they spread hope, joy, love and the clarity of why we all should be so ever grateful for what and who we have in our lives on this beautiful planet. These Pearls are precious, but they need not be rare. More Pearls for everyone, I say!

My heart is ever and always opened wider each time I experience a new Little Pearl! The world is a much brighter place and I am a more evolved human bee~ing that is part of the dance of life from having these windows of light streamed into my consciousness.

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.

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.

As host and prodcuer of Women On Air on NPR member station WETS, I was pleased to have Little Pearls producers as interview guests on the show. With their clear intentions and heartfelt attention toward film subjects, Little Pearls certainly do stand out as uplifting, endearing, informing and affective messages. Lovely work, valuable to many, and deserving of recognition and support.

I think we would all agree that this world needs help before we destroy it and ourselves. Great individuals have walked this earth and done great things, affecting change in many, planting healing seeds. However, what we need to have happen is to raise the "collective" conscience of many, of societies and nations...and this is exactly what Linda MacLean and LITTLE PEARLS is ALL about: raising consciousness, inspiring loving and caring Energy to be sent out via what I call "Spiritual Postcards" that are professionally produced. When you see one of the PSAs come on TV, you stop dead in your tracks, speechless. No ads or commercialism. Only Goodness. Only positive, loving messages of spiritual celebrations. With the internet reaching the masses, it is yet another important highway to help get their message out. Alas, there are no free lunches, and anyone who donates to LITTLE PEARLS will see their dollars go into production of more messages, to get out to more people, to help raise the global Conscience. We need more LITTLE PEARLS in this world, the 'postcards' and organizations like them.

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

Seeing them grow...seeing others pitch in to join the cause...to see the messages get out, and as often as possible.

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

dedicated to the cause of Little Pearls.

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