1000 Cranes for Japan

The Terrible events in Japan are a stark reminder to us all to live life and appreciate our blessing as such sadness and devastation can happen in the blink of an eye.

The crane is a mystical, holy creature in Japan and represents luck, good fortune, and long life. The act of folding cranes, specifically, 1000 cranes, is said to make the folder's wish come true. In times of tradegy it is also said that people can help in the folding of cranes and are often seen displayed around an affected area.

The Project of 1000 cranes is sponsered by a group of wonderful people on flickr that gives us, living here a way to send hope and peace to Japan's people.

If you would like to fold a crane and post your picture on flickr you can follow the links here;
