About the project

As a child, Annie Leffingwell O’Keeffe hooped for fun. Around May 5, 2005, she thought it would be great to have an international holiday for hooping, but that blossomed into a dream to have the whole world hoop for peace by December 2012.

To accomplish this goal, she knew hoops would have to be donated to those who could not afford one. She spent four months of 2005 traveling through Russia, the Alps, France, Scandinavia and the British Isles talking about World Hoop Day. She continues her travels and gifting as often as possible, making 1-2 trips a year to a new place where dozens of children become happy hoop owners.
