Cranes are scared creatures in Japanese Culture. According to legend, anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes will be granted a wish by a crane.
These simple yet powerful gestures will trigger a $200,000 donation from the Bezos Family Foundation – $2 for each crane received – to Architecture for Humanity’s reconstruction efforts for the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan. Once the goal of 100,000 submissions is reached, the cranes will be woven into an art installation – a symbolic gift from students around the globe to Japanese youth.
Dennis Lin, O.D. Inc, and Asian Pacific Counseling and Treatment Centers is actively participating in this special project.
Our goal is to make 10,000 cranes by April 30th, 2011.
