Little Pearls is truly a GEM! The stories touch my very heart and soul, often bringing me to tears! I watch them over and over, finding JOY everytime! Though some appear to be sad on the surface, the lesson behind them is AMAZING! We are all united and share this beautiful world. We often forget that it is our responsibility to care for ALL living things and to cherish the time we have here! I look forward to many more beautiful and heartwarming stories!

Little Pearls is a uniquely compelling, heart-touching and heart-warming organization that is dedicated to producing "mini-media" moments that go right to the core of the true spirit of our human-ness. The name ("Little Pearls") is entirely fitting; indeed, Little Pearls are gems of insight that touch upon and express "heart zingers" that bind us all, and in the process, connect us to our common spirit that animates our lives.

There is nothing quite like "Little Pearls", and nothing that touches our souls in such a simple, direct, and touching manner. Wonderful, and beautiful!

Little Pearls is a brilliant non-profit that produces brief little messages from the heart that touch your soul. These little gems are a reflection of the executive director and co-founder, a woman of both intelligence and deep compassion who understands that the world needs these little films. I wholeheartedly agree.

Little Pearls affect me on many levels. They affect me emotionally, as they bring to light the beauty that surrounds us but is often otherwise overlooked. They also affect me physically, as I literally exhale as I watch the beautiful videos and can feel the tension in my body lessen as I'm reminded of the beauty.

Little Pearls make you stop, smile, and take notice of our world.

As an attorney, sitting at my desk bombarded by information and words, endless words, what a pleasure to find a Little Pearl of pure emotion. If we each took an occasional break to view one of Little Pearls’ short films, it would be a marvelous reminder of the power of images, and that witnessing the love of an animal, strength in the face of hardship or the kindness of a stranger, can bring us a bit closer together in a conflict driven world. I personally know the principals in this project, and the compassion, love and selflessness they exude as individuals is reflected in their work. The energy and time spent on Little Pearls films is an act of love with a large reward for the viewers.

It's such a simple concept: little films making a big difference. Little Pearls is way ahead of their time in making great content that is short enough to make you just click "play" immediately. The content is beautiful and inspiring-- this non-for-profit needs to be known!
