Project: World Tree of Hope

Every December, the Rainbow World Fund (RWF), the only international humanitarian aid organization based out of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) community, erects an enormous Christmas tree in the Rotunda of San Francisco City Hall.  They decorate the tree with thousands upon thousands of small origami cranes inscribed with the hopes and wishes of participants around the country.

According to RWF Founder Jeff Cotter, "The World Tree of Hope joins together individuals of diverse cultures, points of view, spiritual beliefs, socioeconomic backgrounds and sexual identities, and taps into two of our most powerful resources – the human mind and heart – to give individuals a way to join together to express our hopes and intentions for the future of our global community."

Visit The Rainbow Fund to have your wish for the world inscribed on an origami crane and placed on the World Tree of Hope in San Francisco's City Hall.
