"It Matters to This One"
The story goes of a young lad walking along the beach after a severe storm picking up starfish that had become stranded and tossing them back into the ocean.
He encountered an old man who said, "Young man, can't you see there are thousands of starfish on this beach, and only one of you? What difference can you possibly make?"
"It matters to this one" the lad exclaimed, as he threw another starfish back into the surf.
Although we recognize that it is not possible to help everyone trapped in poverty or disease around the world, the mission of Operation Starfish is to do what it can. Working together with like-minded folks, we can make a difference by Helping One Person at a Time.
