The Starfish Story

Starfish Scholarships is built upon the conviction that small acts of generosity can go a long way when it comes to building a better tomorrow. The organization gets its name from "The Starfish Story," originally written by Loren Eisley.

The Starfish Story
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.

Approaching the boy, he asked, "What are you doing?"

The youth replied, "Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them back, they'll die."

"Son," the man said, "don't you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can't make a difference!"

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said..."I made a difference to that one."
