Nobody made a greater mistake than she who did nothing because she could only do a little.
Once upon a time, a little girl was walking on the beach where thousands of starfish were stranded in the sand. She hurled one after another into the sea. A man walked up and said, “There’s too many. You’ll never save them all. You can’t make a difference.”
The girl thinks a minute, looks at the piles upon piles of starfish, picks another one up and throws it in the ocean. “I made a difference to that one.”
Often we feel so discouraged by the enormity of a problem that we fail to start. That’s why Sweet breaks giant global issues into fun-filled, bite-sized chunks.
So far, we’ve done some really big things, like:
Found homes for over 50 stray cats and dogs
Removed 300 bags of trash from beaches and parks
Created a children’s library in Belize City
Donated five new computers to a children’s e-learning center in Roatan.
Planted over 6,000 trees
Painted schools and children’s hospital wards
Rescued hundreds of baby sea turtles
Donated hundreds of suitcases full of school supplies
Helped homeless youth, battered women, special needs kids and more!
And the best part: We had fun doing it! All of Sweet’s projects are designed to accomplish big things in a short time followed by a celebration (usually at the beach).
Whether you donate supplies, money, time or encouragement, you’re helping make the world a better place when you travel with Sweet. When was the last time you felt so good sipping margaritas on the beach?
