The World Tree of Hope is a holiday tree decorated with thousands of origami cranes, each containing written notes of hope & peace from children and individuals from around the world. Created annually as a symbol of global unity and world peace, the tree is a gift from members of the San Francisco LGBTQ and Japanese American communities to the world - given to inspire hope, love and humanitarian action.  

Wishes from world leaders to school children, from San Francisco to Sir Lanka, make the RWF World Tree of Hope a powerful expression of people coming together to create a better world.

Be part of this unique symbol of global unity! Send us your wish, we'll turn it into an origami crane and put it on The World Tree of Hope:
