Little Pearls has created a dialogue with my patient base that is very respected and loved for their spirited presentation of "all that we are possible of." Folks really need to see graphic examples of possibility. DVD's of Little Pearls have been so very well appreciated !
To be called forward in ourselves to contribute and be part of something larger than ourselves is truly a gift. Little Pearls over and again displays the spirit of calling that forward, that which we most deeply wish for our grandchildren. Thank You !!

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 !!

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

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.

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

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

I have been enjoying Little Pearls for years and especially enjoy turning people on to this work. It is so wonderful to find media shining a spotlight on what is BEAUTIFUL in the world - and as much REAL as the horrors we typically see in the media. I feel it is vital to keep our focus on the light so we don't give up in despair.

In a world where bad news seems to be increasing exponentially Lil Pearls reveals the truth. And the truth is that not only is the world a good place, it is actually getting better. Bless these folks and the driving force behind this non-profit, the wonderful Linda McLean!

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.

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

Give them more money to create more videos.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
