THE STAR THROWER – For our little Star x

Our Little Star

A man was walking along the beach when he noticed a young boy apparently picking something off the ground and throwing it out into the sea. As the man got closer to the boy he saw that the objects were starfish. And the boy was surrounded by them. “Why in the world are you throwing starfish into the water?” he asked the boy as he approached. “If these starfish are on the beach tomorrow morning when the tide goes out they will die” he replied. “But that’s ridiculous!” cried the man. “Look around you. There are thousands of miles of beach and millions of starfish. How can you believe that what you’re doing could possibly make a difference? The young boy picked up another starfish, paused thoughtfully, and remarked as he tossed it into the sea “it makes a difference to this one.”

    This is such a special story to me, it is the one that the charity Starfish Malawi is based and named upon. Starfish Maalwi are a Christian Chairty who link Kent schools with schools in Malawi and it is through them that I went to see our partner school in Malawi 2 years ago – a trip I’ll never foget. I think it is the same with any charity, we can’t cure diseases or solve social problems on our own, but every little bit helps x
