Organizers for the Lei for Paris project completed a mile long lei on Tuesday afternoon following four days of weaving conducted by volunteers. A blessing ceremony was planned for Wednesday, and the lei will be shipped to Paris as a symbol of aloha, kindness and love.

A small delegation of emerging youth leaders who departed from Maui over the weekend, will present the lei at various events and locations in Paris during their trip to the United Nations COP21 Negotiations.  The lei, launched by the Cynthia Rose Foundation, is made up of eight sections that combined, stretch a total of one mile.
