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 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 !!
