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.

Little Pearls delivers positive messages of hope, love, and joy in 30-60 seconds. These short videos help to make our would a more compassionate place. Watch them and the emotion and drive to help others will take over. Lots of impact with little screen time!

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!

Little Pearls is amazing! These videos breathe life into a medium that is digestible, practical, and shareable. It reminds me that we don't need millions of dollars to say something important. These films matter, and they open up a conversation. Little Pearls can change the world, I know it!

I'm not much of a jewelry gal, so I'm not quite sure if a pearl is technically a gem. But I do know that Little Pearls are absolute gems that go straight to the heart. These short films cover universal topics that are important to our world and its people. My son doesn't get much screen time, but he has seen all of these. There is such a positive, uplifting, heartfelt message in them all.

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 have been working for a small record label for 12 years, and have seen our artist's music used for a variety of projects. The "Little Pearl" that featured our artist's recording in the background is the most inspiring gem of a short film that I've ever seen, and their other works are all heart-warming and thought-provoking. I highly recommend Little Pearls' work.

I have been licensing music by recording artist great and small to not for profit, community and charity projects for 23 years. The Little Pearls films are among the most heartfelt, effective and creatively satisfying out there. I would have no hesitation recommending their work to any of my artist clients.

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.
