Happy 50th Anniversary Yellow and Stripe!
For half a century Yellow and Stripe are still bringing challenge and hope to hearts everywhere. This inspiring parable about the risk and joy of transformation is for people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds. It’s told through the lives of caterpillars who struggle to "climb to the top" of the pillar before understanding that they are meant to fulfill their purpose and fly, carrying the love of one flower to the other. See what our readers are saying.

50 years ago in March of 1970 Trina was working on a different book about Hope. One day the two caterpillars on the cover seemed to ask for their own story. That day 90% of Hope for the Flowers was written. Hope For The Flowers was published in July 1972 and since then over 4 million copies have been sold in English with over 20 translation across the globe.
We invite you to become part of our Hope for the Flowers Family.
You are invited to celebrate with us.

That better world we long for is possible if we share. Together we can become the force for peace we need for all lives to flourish. There is hope for the flowers!
Yellow and Stripe are celebrating their 50th Anniversary! The Hope team encourages you to continue to share your wonderful and moving stories of how Hope has touched your life personally as we create an online community utilizing the tools available through social media.
Somehow we each have to understand, that uncomfortable as it may feel, in someway you and I are meant for this time. I often wonder how God chose me to share this parable knowing we would need a story of Hope that crosses every boundary I can think of - whether age, sex, class, religion, country, politics. I have to understand with gratitude that it was given to me as gift. The challenge to share what I've been given fills my life. Each of us is asked to share whatever gifts we have. In that loving service we will find our joy.
In hope always,
-Trina, Stripe and Yellow
May our global home be an oasis of hope; challenging and encouraging each of us to become the magnificent butterflies we are destined to be. We can then bring Hope to all the flowers we meet. To be effective means enough of us, maybe 5%, have to risk the cocoon. It means we have given up crawling over others. It means we can now fly and discover the beauty in each caterpillar and flower around us. It means we can then carry love from each of those flowers to every flower we will ever meet.
