Cranes for Japan

There’s a legend in Japan that says the if 1,000 origami paper cranes are folded, a person’s wish will come true. Consequently, the crane has become the symbol for peace, hope, and recovery from illness. With the devastation in Japan, crafters across the world have shown their support by folding hundreds of origami cranes.

    I’ve noticed some auction sites for crafters donating the money to Japan. Lots of cool things to bid on! My husband used to bartend, and one of his customers used to fold up dollar bills for his tips into orignami animals! My husband kept them up on the bar for the entirety of his employement. They were really cool!
