Every month our restaurant raises money for a local non profit. For the last several years Little Pearls has been a focus of one of our drives. It is run by great people who do remarkable work impacting people with short inspirational films. I highly recommend them

Little Pearls is a genuine grassroots labor of love, providing touching and timely small films that inform, inspire and prompt people to think more compassionately about one another, creatures and the environment. The films are conceived, produced and shared on a shoestring budget and are remarkably beautiful.

Little Pearls tell the stories of ordinary people who have done very special things for others or for the world, or, who have faced difficult challenges and rose to overcome them, or become better people, as the result of their struggles. These short videos are an inspiration every time I see one. They pack a maximum wallop in a minimum amount of time, and are excellent value for my donation to help with filming or screenings, or, for any idealistic person/organization trying to make this a better world for all humankind..

Little Pearls' short films is an art form that seeks to enlighten, engage, lift and strengthen. They are films that educate, inspire, and draw deep on emotions. I especially love the dog pearls, because animals sheltering and rescue are my passion. To see the dogs romping in open fields with such great joy, and also to see "Spirit Dog" about those who have left us, was an amazing experience. I watched them over and over, and I will do so again, especially when I or a friend loses a beloved pet. The director of Little Pearls, Linda McLean, is one of the most soulful, spiritual, gracious and loving people I know. I treasure her and respect her work. She is one of the main reasons I contribute to Lillte Pearls.

Over the years, I've been involved in many non-profit organizations. It's hard to put my finger on what - specifically - is different about Little Pearls. Really, it's not just one thing, but many.

Starting with its founders. Two amazing women with a vision.
Two creative, generous
souls who saw the need for more positive messages in a trepidatious world

I've had the wonderful opportunity to befriend them both and to spend time with, assist, and observe Linda McClean, the amazingly dedicated, hardworking director. I bear witness to the long hours and selfless perseverance she contributes to this beautiful organization every...single...day.

With tireless and irrepressible devotion, she takes our positive visions and shapeshifts them into works of art - short enough to fit any media slot, with so much beauty that they bring tears to the eyes of children of all ages. (My mom, who's 88, will attest to that!)
Tears - happy, caring tears - in our eyes - through which we are able to catch a glimpse of a better future.
I've had the opportunity to be part of the creative process and to witness - from the brainstorming of an idea to the finishing touches - the creation of a Pearl. What a gift!

The Great!

Two "little pearls" are especially dear to my heart. Aslan, a noble white shepherd and my companion of 10 years, was to play a starring role in both. Sadly, he died just before the filming was to begin. His son Tucker was asked to stand in for him. Though he had been a shy dog all his life, he truly blossomed in his role as Spirit Dog. A few months later, he too made his transition to the realm of spirit. It means so much to me to have my beloved companions immortalized in these beautiful videos.

I would do some major fundraising, knowing that all donations would be flowing through loving hands into the direct creation of beautiful films carrying uplifting messages. I would also wrangle a hardy staff of devout volunteers to share in that creation.

Singing dogs. Baby owls. School children. Gentle-spirited farmers reaching out to other farmers. A young woman who, even disabled, has learned to dance. An old woman whose rich laughter speaks of an equally rich life. Each pearl is part of a long and lovely string of pearls that has, is, and will continue to touch and enrich lives. Mine included.

These tiny films, crafted with such loving artistry, are gifts to a world longing to believe in something better.

try to find more ways in which to get other excited about what Little Pearls is trying do. We live in a "reality show" world and the pearls often get overlooked.

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.

The Great!

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

seeing the dream come alive.

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

fabulous...I have known one of the founders for many years, and she is full of integrity. This is an extension of her heart.

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

be on network tv!

Ways to make it better...

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.

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.

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 represent a small foundation that has the fundamental mission of supporting "life enhancing" efforts. Our grantees span a spectrum from animal rescue to environmental advocacy and spirituality. Little Pearls was one of our earliest grant recipients, chosen for the exceptionally powerful voice it gives to the spirit of wonder and the gentle charge it makes to each of us to be aware and to take responsibility for our part in protecting all the little pearls of our lives.

in its non-insistent way, move us closer to being a nation of peace and mutual respect. I might even have to get a TV!

Ways to make it better...

I could have seen their work often...but that would require my getting a television and watching it. Right now, as I experience main stream media, the sacrifice would be too great.
