Don is going through cancer treatment at the moment. We're his relations and are making 1000 paper cranes to send to him.

Here's how it started: From afar, we pray, send positive thoughts, and wait to hear from anyone.  While I was thinking what else we could do, I stumbled upon Sadako's story.  Growing up in Japan and making 1000 paper cranes is a common practice there, I thought I could do it with my children so that our well-wishes could be boxed and mailed to him in time for Christmas! 

Here's what we've done so far:

We set a goal of making minimum 25 paper crane for 40 days.  On the back of the paper, we write something for Don: wishes, thoughts, memories, dreams, etc.  The birds are connected with dental floss (maybe stronger than a thread?!) to eventualy be put together as a hang-able ornament.  Among four of us here, some are folders, a scribe, a counter, and a sewer.  We work well together and there is lots of happiness and positive energies while birds are created

Here's how we are sharing this project with you:

We will send origami paper to you.  You write your message on them and mail them back to us.  They will be folded into colorful beautiful birds of hope and love.  If mailing is not practical, we will be glad to receive your messages for Don via facebook and email.  One of us is a scribe who will carefully and lovingly write your messages onto the paper.

How your contribution will be used:

The money will be used to buy more paper, used for postage cost, and any left over will be donated to charity. 

Big thanks and hugs to your help, contribution, and cheers!
