Greensburg, KS

2007

The first pay-it-forward project was simple: Empowering 220 children in Greensburg, Kansas to bring hope and color back to their tornado ravaged town by painting inspirational words, messages, and designs on 1 foot wooden stars. These stars were then planted on every street corner of Greensburg, a town 95% destroyed by an E-F5 tornado. The Stars of HOPE transformed the physical and emotional landscape of Greensburg, Kansas overnight.
