Let's fold paper cranes for Japan!

*UPDATE- we made our goal of 1,000 and they have been shipped.  If you would like to send more cranes yourself, go to*
An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.  Let's see how many cranes the Dolvin Dolphins can fold, and send good wishes to Japan!  Fold them at home and bring them to my classroom.  We will tally up how many we can get.  I will also have folding instructions for you in my room if you come by before school starts.  Happy folding!!!


  1. It is a beautiful legend.
    What a great way to send wishes of recovery to Japan.

  2. There is a movement starting by art teachers- Fans For Japan, similar to Houses For Haiti.

    Just passing on the info!

  3. I've got 183 so far. :)

    Once we're done, we're going to hand them out to people at a local community event whenever they make a donation to the relief effort.

  4. oh, what a great idea. we could trade them for donations at our end-of-year art show and send all proceeds to japan! thanks!
