Stranded Starfish

By Guest Blogger Robin Lea Amos

There is a well-known story of a person walking on a beach littered with starfish who sees someone else picking up individual starfish and throwing them back into the ocean. The individual walks up to the starfish thrower and says, “What are you doing? You know you aren’t making any difference.”


The thrower picks up another starfish, throws it into the ocean and then responds, “I made a difference to this one.” This story is usually used as an inspirational story, especially for teachers, about the difference one person may make in the life of another.

This is what we do at GiGi’s Playhouse Phoenix, we make a difference to one child at a time.
