On November 8, 2018, a gunman opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California killing 12 innocent people including college students, a veteran and law enforcement officer. Many other people were injured.
The tragedy that happened in Thousand Oaks is horrific, but the love and support that has poured in from the country is something to be proud of.
Right now, Stars of HOPE are being deployed to Thousand Oaks but we will be part of the long-term healing process, and you can too. Your stars will act as a daily reminder of strength to survivors and that the Thousand Oaks community and victims have our support.
We’ve witnessed the tremendous healing brought by Stars of HOPE when they arrive at sites of human-caused tragedy, such as San Bernardino, Orlando, Manchester and Sutherland Springs.
Here are some ways you can help bring hope and healing to Thousand Oaks with Stars of HOPE:
- Paint Stars of HOPE: You can help from home by painting stars with messages of hope and healing and sending them to survivors. Order a Box of HOPE to get started. Once you have painted your stars, you can send them to our Hope Bank.
- Donate to Stars of HOPE: After a tragedy, our team deploys to devastated areas to bring Stars of Hope to survivors. Seeing Stars of HOPE and the words of encouragement and hope from others help survivors feel like they are not alone during their recovery. Donate Now.
Where do I send my Stars of HOPE after I have painted them for Thousand Oaks?
