“My father-in-law told me a story about a little boy trying to save starfish stranded on the beach. He was picking them up one at a time and tossing them back into the water. An old curmudgeon came up and said, ‘Why are you even bothering? There are hundreds of them here. What difference does it make?’ To which the little boy replied, ‘It makes a difference to this starfish’, and threw yet another out to sea.” – Kate
As each of our projects complete, we’ll publicly release the data on resources used, people affected, and the perceivable impact.
It might be hard to present impact metrics in large scale corporate terms to win big grants and big money, but really, it’s all about one starfish at a time.
