The Graffiti Bridge would like to honor all of our community partners who spend their valuable time raising funds and caring for those who are less fortunate.
I have been honored and proud to be allowed to know these fine folks. These are the individuals who make a community great and a city a good place to live. I get so frustrated when some naysayer wants to say: , “You can’t do any good. You are just one person. You can’t make a difference.” Then I tell him the starfish story:
There was a little boy on the beach. A starfish washed up on the shore, so the little boy ran up to him, picked up the starfish and threw him back into the water. Then he looked a bit down the beach, and there was another starfish, so the little boy ran down and threw him back. Then he looked and all up and down the beach the little boy saw hundreds of starfish washed up, so he ran and started throwing them back as fast as he could. Well, it was time to go home, and his mother tried to tell him. “Son, I’m sorry, but you are just one person, there are so many. You can’t possibly make a difference.” And the little boy threw one last starfish back in the ocean and told his mom. “Mom, to his life I did.”
Whether it is rescuing puppies abandoned in the hours running up to a major hurricane, donating art to raise money for neglected and abused kids, helping to raise awareness for self harm and suicide prevention; The Graffiti Bridge is honored and proud to work hand-in-hand with these fine organizations and the exceptional people who run them.
These remarkable individuals work hard everyday to make the world a better place for the most disenchanted, hopeless and vulnerable people who live their lives, right here, alongside us in the same community.
