Diversity Tree Toppers!!!

Of all the Christmas ornaments, it is the tree topper that hold the most significance. Sitting atop the pine tree, the tree topper is more than an aesthetic ornament, it is a symbol of who you are. With this in mind, YourTreedition designed a line of diversity tree toppers that represent the different beliefs and values of today's modern family. There's a design for every home:  

 The North Star,    Peace on Earth,  Star of David   &   Gay Pride Topper

Diversity Tree Toppers! Handmade in US.

Our Designs

All of our toppers are handmade in the USA from the highest grade metals, including steel, brass and copper. 

The Pride Topper - Artistically designed and creatively combining the colors of the pride rainbow and the classic 5-Point star, the Pride Tree Topper is the perfect way to show support for our LGBT community during the holidays.

  • Steel burnished with metallic red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple
  • Measures 10 inches from point to point. Weighs 10 oz
  • Backed with a steel coil for easy mounting on any sized tree
  • Designed for year round display in your home on a table top easel
  • Handcrafted in the US

The North Star - The North Star is a celestial marker which has guided us for thousands of years. It is a reminder that no matter where you are, if you look up to the sky you can find direction and navigate your way back home. Similar to the North Star, this tree topper is a marker for your family, providing a path paved with memories and love to the warmest place on earth, home.

The Peace on Earth Topper - The 1960s might be behind us, but the belief in peace and love is timeless. What better time to celebrate world peace than during the holidays. The Peace Topper allows families to proudly display this powerful symbol by making it the center “peace” of the Christmas Tree.

The Star of David Topper - Made up of two superimposed equilateral triangles, the six points of the star point in all directions, with symmetry and balance. Thus, the star exemplifies an equilibrium existing within ourselves and our surrounding universe.  Whether you are from an interfaith household, or you celebrate Hanukkah with a "Hanukkah bush," the Star of David Topper is the perfect addition to your holiday tree.

Leaf Ornaments - Just as a tree has many leaves, each one distinct in its own way, a family is made up of unique individuals together creating a special place to call home. These commemorative leaf ornaments, designed exclusively for this Kickstarter project, encapsulate the diversity celebrating motto, "one tree...many leaves."

  • Handcrafted brass

What Makes us Special?

These are not your grandmother's porcelain angel, but rather a modern take on a traditional holiday item. Diversity Tree Toppers are symbols of peace, love, and harmony which celebrate your unique family. They are heirloom quality and uniquely designed so they can be displayed year round on a table top easel. That beats sitting a storage closet 11 months out of the year!

Where You Come In 

Kickstarter, we're asking you for your pledge. We almost have enough money to fund a manufacturing run of 750 toppers of each design (the minimum order size the manufacturer will run), but we still need $6,200 to make this project happen. While $6,200 is our minimum, the real goal is $100,000 dollars. With that money, we can produce our toppers on a much larger scale and help thousands of families celebrate the holidays.

Risks and challenges

We have already encountered a big challenge that most kickstarter projects face, timing a feasible delivery date.

Leading up to the launch of this campaign, we did our best to have everything lined up to begin production immediately after we meet our minimum funding requirements and have the toppers ready in time for this Christmas. Someone named Sandy had other plans ;) Her heavy rains and gusts of wind have pushed back our manufacturers by several months. Therefore, upon successful funding of the project (fingers crossed) the toppers will be ready in 2013 rather than 2012 (the first 75 backers will receive theirs in 2012).

We realize some of you might hesitate to back a project for tree toppers that you'll receive after this Christmas, so we've decided to up the ante. Every tree topper pledge that will be fulfilled in 2013 will also receive a FREE birch leaf brass ornament. All leaf ornaments will be delivered this December for you to hang on your tree!

Also, these tree toppers are not strictly a seasonal item. They are specially designed so that they can be displayed year round on a table top easel.

Thank you in advance for all your support. Wishing everyone affected by the storm a fast recovery.
