Every Action Counts

 Here’s Something To Feel Good About Today!

Ever throw a pebble into a pond and watch the ripple effect?  It’s the same with human beings. Everything we do or say creates ripples that expand in ways we cannot imagine.

If you think that your life has no effect on someone else, think again. Everything you say and do counts. So smile more often, be compassionate toward others and whenever you can extend your helping hand. Here’s an amazing story of two lives that have made a big impact on the lives of many.

When Hilde Back sponsored a young, rural Kenyan student, she thought nothing of it. She certainly never expected to hear from him, but years later she does. Now a Harvard graduate and a Human Rights Lawyer for the United Nations, Chris Mburu decides to find the stranger that changed his life. Inspired by her generosity, he starts a scholarship program of his own and names it for his former benefactor.

The top students in Mukubu primary school are in the exact same situation as Chris once was. They are bright, but can’t afford to pay school fees. With the creation of Chris’ fund, these students have new hope. But the program is small; how many will qualify for a scholarship?

Using a strong narrative, the film interweaves seemingly separate lives into a cohesive whole. With clarity and grace, A SMALL ACT, bears witness to the ripple effect a single action can create. Take a look at this amazing true story! A Small Act, a film by Jennifer Arnold

Never forget that you are an important part of the universal plan. You can and do make a difference to every life your life touches. Make it a positive one!
