“Seeing the stars brought a sense of calmness in the storm.
They stood out among all the destruction.
They showed us the precious goodness in humanity.”
– Francesca, Hurricane Sandy Survivor

Stars of HOPE®

A simple idea that is changing the world.

Stars of HOPE is transforming the way people express compassion and connectivity following disasters.

Stars of HOPE® is a unique disaster relief and community arts program that empowers children (of all ages) to transform communities impacted by natural and man-made disasters through colorful art and messages of hope and healing.  We have empowered 40,000 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.

Introducing Stars of HOPE® Box of HOPE

Hope Box Set

“The first time I saw some stars, I smiled. The second time, I stopped to read them. The next time, I found myself looking for them and excited to see new ones. That was the moment I realized your beautiful stars became my focus instead of the destruction that was once our beautiful life. Thank you for the beauty you are bringing back to us.”
Dana C., Hurricane Sandy survivor, Sheepshead Bay, NY
