FLAGS OF HOPE PROJECT
Flags of Hope is a standalone campaign which strives to raise money for and increase awareness about the 2015 Nepal Earthquake through use of community made Prayer Flags.
These flags will dissolve into the wind, symbolically spreading good will to wherever the threads are carried.
Additionally, we hope to further educate the public on Nepali culture and tradition.
