I remember back in grade school, we had a Japanese woman(whose name I can't even remember) who helped us learn of her culture. One such aspect was the story of Sadako Sasaki and the thousand paper cranes, about a dying girl who wanted to make a thousand cranes so she could recover from her lukemia and live. After hearing of the disasters in Japan these last few days, :iconxxde-jixx: and I felt this was an appropriate way to send our thoughts and prayers to those suffering there right now. Together, we constructed 103 cranes so far.

I really wish we could do more than just making cranes, but we're short on cash at the moment. Still, if there's even the slightest chance that our prayers and well wishes can reach even one person over in Japan and lift their spirits even in the slightest, then we owe it to them to try. They need every shred of goodwill the world can muster right about now.

I'd also like to encourage any of the equally financially-challenged out there to send out your thoughts and prayers to those suffering from these recent disasters in any way you can.

Also, for those who can, you can donate money to the red cross on their website. [link]

Man, this is just awesome! It goes to show that even if you're broke, there's still something you can do!

This looks so much smaller in the picture. :XD:
This is a great idea. Maybe if a bunch of people got together you might get to a thousand paper cranes faster, now I'm not saying you two can't do it, because 103 so far is pretty good. But it would be really cool if many people got together to do this.
Tried that before...til the economy went stuck at 178 or so...

Wanted to do it just because...but glad to see it being done for hope or so...

Nice job man,hope you get that 1000th crane.
I did a drawing myself, because like you, I'm too short on money at the time. I wish I could, but at least we're getting people to know about the disaster. It's just getting more and more tragic. :(

I was gonna make a funny meme reference, but then I read your description and figured it might be in poor taste. Here's a puppy instead: :iconcutepuppyplz:
