Starfish on my Jeep

Hope Community Church is raising money to build a hospital in Haiti. To do this, they gave everyone in the congregation an envelop containing money. They said each person should find a creative way to increase the funds.

In my envelope, I received ten dollars. For my project I have decided to paint starfish on my jeep. for one dollar I'll tell you the Starfish Story and then paint a starfish on my jeep. You can even pick the color.

Don't know the starfish Story? Well here it is...

The Starfish Story
Original Story by: Loren Eisley

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 for that one.”

Ha! Now you own me a dollar! ;) What color starfish do you want??
