A bouquet of hope

At the end of my workday, I took home a bouquet of yellow tulips.

It’s not unusual for women to get flowers from their workplaces in honor of International Women’s Day.

But the flowers I got were not just a random bouquet.

They were yellow. On purpose.

Yellow, an established symbol of readiness to welcome home hostages. 


The bouquet came with a note. A sad note filled with hope.

On the one hand, flowers are a symbol of peace, love, renewal, revival, joy.

On the other hand, 19 Israeli women are still being held captive by the Hamas terror group. And it is not okay.


These yellow tulips are part of the Bouquet of Hope project, a project initiated by the Kadar Foundation together with the Hostage and Missing Families Forum.

The project raises awareness for the return of all Israeli hostages and helps support the families of the abductees.

The Bouquet of Hope project has been running for a few months already, and every Friday, they sell yellow flowers to raise funds for the efforts still underway to bring the hostages home.


In honor of International Women’s Day, this week’s bouquets of yellow tulips are dedicated to the 19 women still being held captive in horrific conditions.  


It is March. 2024.

They were kidnapped in October. 2023.

Bring them home now.
