How The STARWALK Project started

As a group, we sat down and wrote letters to celebrities and notable individuals. Requested their participation in The Wall of Inspiration Project. By sending us one photo with a short personal message of inspiration. After all, the right words can convey hope, faith, strength and inspire. The right words can also revitalize an old idea and give a new one the wings to fly.

The Youth Ambassadors first started making handmade clay bricks with the names of celebrities that that took the time out their busy schedule, to participate in The Wall of Inspiration and other projects. Because of the success of the projects, We decided to created an outdoor display. I contacted a couple of company that make engraved bricks and decided on Brick Markers USA to work with us in creating a outdoor display.

“The Wall ” has grown into the world’s largest collection of autographed photos, messages, notes and letters from celebrities and notable individuals from around the world. Addressed to a group of children on the significance of staying in school, getting their education and going for their dreams.

The project has inspired countless young people over the years to move forward in pursuit of their dreams. The WALL has been a great tool in our mission of encouraging young people to staying in school, saying NO to gang, drugs, going for their dreams and striving to reach their full potential.

The project has been also been very successful tool in our mission to stop bullying, too, promote tolerates, positive communication in the form of words and images. The Youth Ambassadors displayed THE WALL collection to the public and share Anti-Bullying Essay / Poetry / Anti-Bullying Collages.

We have been honored with the participation of individuals such as, Drew Barrymore, Former President Bill Clinton, Carol Channing, Sean Combs, Walter Cronkite, Gloria Estefan, Morgan Freeman, Melissa Gilbert, Whoopi Goldberg, Merv Griffin, Nelson Mandela, Wynton Marsalis, Prince Albert of Monaco, Nancy O’Dell, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gloria Steinman, Ben Stiller, John Travolta and Donald Trump just to name a few.
