Every little bit helps

A man taking a morning walk on the beach noticed that the tide washed up hundreds of starfish, and with the intensity of the morning sun rays they would die.  The next day as he began his walk along the beach he noticed that as the tide receded, the starfish were alive.  The man took a few steps, picked one up and threw it into the water.  He did this act repeatedly.  Another person on the beach couldn’t understand what this man was doing.  He caught up with him and asked, “what are you doing?”  There are hundreds of starfish how many can you help?  What difference does it make?  This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, “it makes a differennce to this one”.
