turning art into a
global message of hope
“When I saw and read the first Star I cried,
actually sobbed...knowing someone
took the time to show their support.
A small gesture made a HUGE impact!”
Healing the healers
"Stars of HOPE allowed me to show support and
gratitude to our healthcare professionals
and forgotten communities in a time that is so
hard to connect."
compassionate connections
“Stars of Hope was of HUGE importance to the survivors
from one disaster being empowered and given strength
and opportunity to heal within by being able to reciprocate
and pay it forward by sending stars to another disaster area.”
Community therapeutic art
“It provided all members of the community
young and old [the opportunity] to come together
to do something uplifting, creating unity and hope,
whether they were directly affected or not.”
Together we heal
“It teaches even the smallest child to have
empathy for others and to give back
even in the midst of your own tragedy.”
