17th Annual Tree of Hope Lighting Celebration 

Monday, December 5 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Rainbow World Fund (RWF) and Grace Cathedral invite you to the 17th Annual RWF World Tree Lighting Celebration.  

The RWF World Tree of Hope is a holiday tree decorated with thousands of origami cranes, each containing written notes of hope and 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. 

The tree will be at Grace Cathedral through January 7, 2023.
