“I believe that The Olive Branch can help make a real difference in our world.”--Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Red and Yellow live together in the branches of an olive tree--but these two friends are as different as can be, and sometimes have trouble co-existing peacefully. Red wants to play loudly on his strummy, while Yellow longs for sleep. This adorable bedtime story about tolerance and conflict resolution is based on an animated TV show that currently airs on over 100 channels around the world.
Based in New York City, The Little Light Foundation is a nonprofit charity whose goal is to create original media that helps children around the world learn about conflict resolution and mutual respect. Josh Selig, the founder of the company, is the creative genius behind popular TV shows such as The Wonder Pets. To ensure that The Olive Branch reaches the widest possible audience, episodes are available to any broadcaster in the world for just one unit of that country's own currency.
More praise for The Olive Branch: “What I admire about The Olive Branch is [it] demonstrates that our conflicts can be resolved with joy, humor, and true compassion...”--Deepak Chopra “The show reflects many of the goals we seek to achieve…”--Karen Cirillo, UNICEF “We believe this project will help children find creative ways to work out their differences.”--Rhonda Barad, Simon Wiesenthal Center/NY Tolerance Center
