How It Started
The Teach1000 work was inspired by the Starfish story.
The Starfish Story
Once upon a time, there was a man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.
One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.
As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a child, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The child was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.
He came closer still and called out “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
The child paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”
“I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” asked the somewhat startled man.
To this, the child replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”
Upon hearing this, the man commented, “But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”
At this, the child bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, “I made a difference for that one.”
The Starfish story was simple but impacted the Founder deeply. We can affect lives one student at a time. People want to affect lives but wonder what their dollar, $10 or a hundred dollars can achieve.
Can you help everybody? No we cannot but we should never allow what we cannot do stop us from achieving what we CAN do.
Can we help a few or even just 1 person? Yes we can and we MUST help. We can never know the impact of our genuine act of kindness in the many years to follow. JOIN US
