The Smallest Thing: #HFBClassroom

Sr. Munira said it best when she said: “Whatever little you can contribute, it is a lot.” 

Most don’t realise that the smallest thing can have the biggest impact.

I know that charities and not-for-profits say things like this all the time, so you’ve probably heard it before.

But you haven’t heard anything until you’ve heard Nicole, our Inventory Coordinator, excitedly waving a ten dollar note in the air and shouting, “You don’t understand! Do you know how much food I can buy with this?!” 

A four-year-old giving a dollar from their piggy bank doesn’t comprehend the gravity of their donation…but we do when we are able to stack can, after can, after can onto our shelves.

Even something as small as a kind word about our project has created waves for us, allowing us to expand our reach into the community.

Almost all of our new volunteers and contributors tell us that they heard about our project from their friends and family.

Because one person bothered to say something kind about the work we are so passionate about, we are able to pack 200 boxes worth of food every single month.

Because one person bothered to say something kind, we are continuously given more space to grow and connect with our community.

Never underestimate the small things. After all, trees start out as nothing but seeds.
