ISP’s Traveling Star

Did you receive a traveling star? Each star kicks off with the first recipient doing an act of service for another, adding some artwork to make the star their own unique symbol of all that is awesome about them, then it’s passed onto the next person so they, in turn, can do the same.

Step 1: Receive your Star. It can be wood or paper. If paper, ideally, you will want to laminate it once decorated.

Step 2: Decorate your Star with items and colors to reflect YOU. Use marker, stickers, paint, etc.

Step 3: Name your star and use a string or the color ribbon chart below to represent a cause you helped with your star or one that is important to you. Go do an awesome act of kindness or service to others or cause.

Step 4: Now place your star on the map, write your star’s name, tell your story & even upload a photo of your star or you with your star. CLICK HERE to add your star to the map!

Step 5: Send your star to a friend anywhere in the world with directions or this link to keep your star traveling. Challenge them to do the same, map your star with your star’s name but THEIR story, & send to someone THEY know. Then watch it fly across the globe!
