Stars of HOPE. A Simple Idea
Stars of HOPE® is transforming the way people express
compassion and connectivity following disasters.
Stars of HOPE® is transforming the way people express compassion and connectivity following disasters by painting meaningful words and images on wooden stars.
What makes Stars of HOPE so powerful is that we have turned a therapeutic arts program into a community-wide public art installation which extends the healing power of these beautiful stars to thousands of people dealing with the traumatic after-effects of disaster.
Stars of HOPE believes you can give someone else hope – from across the street to across the country and the world.
Everyone can be empowered to find the words to paint on a wooden star that will lift spirits – and let people know that they are not forgotten.
Stars of HOPE is transforming the traditional disaster relief dynamic of food-clothing-shelter by introducing a critical 4th element – HOPE – into the immediate and long-term recovery process.
Stars of HOPE become new landmarks in towns left barren by twisters, blackened by fires, flooded by hurricanes, or left emotionally adrift by catastrophes and acts of violence.
