Little Pearls, "tiny films that open hearts and minds" is a non-profit that is close to my heart. It is so vital when the media is full of negitivity, fear and hate to have films that inspire authentic connection and compassion and for all living beings.

In the spring of 2011, I met with Linda McLean, Executive and Creative Director of the non-profit, Little Pearls. I resonated with Linda’s strong interest in using media as a consciousness-raising tool. I began a volunteer internship with Little Pearls in the summer of 2011 and was invited to serve on their Board of Directors in 2012.

Doing volunteer work with Little Pearls, I was able to visit several local recording and editing studios as Linda produced and directed several Dog Pearls. The Dog Pearls celebrate the wisdom and love of dogs. These beautiful Dog Pearls guide us through various life experiences such as joy, grief, love and loss. Little Pearls are usually only 30-60 seconds in length. The volunteer experience with Little Pearls helped me realize the power of a short film to connect, inspire and transform. Linda McLean continues to be a great friend and mentor. I am inspired with the compassionate intention and skill that goes into each short film.


Each film made by Little Pearls is a tiny gem that lovingly plants a seed of hope and change. Little Pearls skillfully explores universal themes that remind us of what truly matters and how we are all connected.

Most Little Pearls are only 30-60 seconds which are perfect for this fast paced world and easily shared on facebook and other social media.

I hope that Little Pearls can continue to produce more films and also present these transformative films at various film festivals in the U.S. and also the world.

The work of Little Pearls touches the heart and soul of many. They are inspiring little films that cover the range of joy, sadness, world disasters, important people to know about and dogs to admire and are for all ages. They convey many messages and can help people though difficult times as well as share lessons of compassion. I have watched them many, many times and am always moved through many emotions which often lead to tears of many kinds.

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

make sure they could acquire enough money to continue the good work of making these films and sharing them with the world.

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!

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

...the messages of hope and compassion shown in these tiny films.

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

Find an energetic partner to help Linda.
