A Simple Idea That is Changing the World.

Stars of HOPEⓇ is the world’s largest and fastest growing healing arts program.

Since 2007, over 80,000 hand-painted Stars of HOPE® have lifted the spirits of millions of disaster survivors in over 200 communities and 26 countries from Greensburg, Kansas to Kathmandu, Nepal.

Stars of HOPEⓇ started with two families: the Parness family in New York who wanted to “Pay it Forward” for the love New York City received from people around the world following 9/11; and the Vincent family from Groesbeck, TX who wanted to “Pay it Forward” for the support they received when New York Says Thank You volunteers rebuilt their home following a deadly tornado.

Stars of HOPE have transformed the physical and emotional landscapes of communities devastated by acts of nature or acts of violence. We have empowered over 80,000 volunteers including school children, families, seniors, first responders, veterans, active military, partner organizations, and entire communities to paint inspirational words, messages, and designs on 1-foot wooden Stars. These Stars of HOPE are displayed in public places in communities worldwide in the immediate and long-term aftermath of tragedy serving as beacons of hope and compassion for all to see.

Stars of HOPEⓇ is a registered trademark of the New York Says Thank You Foundation.

“ Stars of HOPE has impacted me in so many ways. They have provided the feeling of comfort when the first box appeared, watching the affected read them and then, in return, make them and the feeling of inspiration when watching others find peace and healing. They have given people a way to pay it forward and the world needs more of that.”<br />
