Rainbow World Fund's World Tree of Hope ® design and execution team: Linda Mihara, Karen Kai, and Jeff Cotter.
Our special thanks to the following individuals and organizations that help us create the 2017 RWF World Tree of Hope. The tree has over 17,000 origami models on it. The origami each model is folded (some models are created from 6 separate pieces of paper), wired, and submerged in liquid fireproofing solution then dried and reshaped by being steam ironed. Each model is then be hand wired to the 23 foot tree. The tree has 10,000 lights on it. Creating this years tree was a group effort involving over 300 volunteers and 2200 hours.
