By now we are all aware of the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan and I’m sure many of you want to help even if you do not have the money to do so. The crane is sacred to the Japanese and can even grant a wish to someone who folds 1,000 cranes. Because of this meaning of the crane, students rebuild, has decided to donate $2 for every paper crane that is made and then sent to the address on the website. This is an easy way to support the rebuilding efforts in Japan. It is geared towards younger people however, I believe it is something that we can all take part in. If you want to also donate money I am including a great article on CNN that lists many different organizations that are working to help those in Japan. I was going to list some but then looking at the article thought it best to just attach for you to be able to decide where you want your money to go. Happy Folding!
Until next week,
