World’s Largest Origami Tree “Tree of Hope” | Grace Cathedral

See the world’s most unique holiday tree at Grace Cathedral.

The Rainbow World Fund (RWF) World Tree of Hope is the largest origami holiday tree in the world, standing over 23 feet tall and decorated with over 17,000 origami cranes and stars, each hand folded and inscribed with wishes for the future of the world. The wishes come from people of all ages, all faiths and all walks of life. The cranes are not mere decorations in a holiday display; they are representations of hopes and dreams.

On View: December 8, 2019 to January 11, 2020

If you’d like to help decorate the tree at Grace Cathedral, they welcome volunteers. You can sign up to volunteer, November 30 to December 8, 2019. They’ll have drinks and snacks for the volunteers.

Since 2006, Rainbow World Fund has presented the World Tree of Hope as a symbol of global unity and hope to promote peace, love, and humanitarian action. The tree is a project of Rainbow World Fund, a humanitarian aid organization based in the LGBTQ community, and given as a gift to the world annually to express the belief that we are all One Human Family.

Celebrate the holidays and see the world’s largest origami tree light up for the season. Rainbow World Fund invites you to the 14th Annual RWF World Tree Lighting Celebration.
