Bucket of hope

We're just a drop in the bucket, and that's meaningless.
But we say,
'No, wait a minute.
If you have a bucket, those raindrops fill it up very fast.

Being a drop in the bucket is magnificent.'

The problem is we cannot see the bucket.
Our work is helping people see that there is a bucket.
There are all these people all over the world who are creating this bucket of hope.
And so our drops are incredibly significant.
