There is an old Japanese tradition that 1,000 origami paper cranes will bring good luck. Cranes for Cancer's mission is to provide baskets or vases of 1,000 cranes to cancer patients. The 1000 cranes bring hope and uplift spirits. We've been doing this for about 18 years, but we NEED HELP! You can help by: 1) Donating money for supplies 2) Donating origami paper 3) FOLDING CRANES.
If you know of a person who is in need of 1,000 origami paper cranes, please send an e-mail and we will send your dear friend or family member 1,000 paper cranes of hope and healing.
Fran and her son used their time indoors during the cold Ohio winter to think of others, and create over 1,000 cranes, folding and packaging them in layers of large and small cranes. What a wonderful activity to benefit those in need.
With this 4th donation of 1600 cranes, the students at Langley High have continued their service learning efforts with amazing work. Our sincere thanks to them and to their coordinator, Betsy, for this incredible contribution, bringing their total donation these past few years to over 4,000 cranes!!
“Penguin" paper cranes can bring smiles...thanks to our friends at Grace Episcopal Church in Connecticut who continue to support Cranes for Cancer with creative papers and designs tucked in their latest donation of 700 cranes.
