How to Make Paper Cranes For Japan Relief

Paper Cranes For Japan: A Tutorial to Benefit Tsunami Affected Tots

Fly, little bird, fly! In Japan, legend holds that if you fold 1,000 paper cranes, your wish will come true. Following last month's devastating earthquake and tsunami, as well as the powerful aftershocks that are still being felt throughout the region, several organizations have called for students to create their own paper cranes to benefit families affected by the natural events.

Students Rebuild and DoSomething.org have launched the Paper Cranes For Japan effort to collect 100,000 origami cranes and trigger a $200,000 donation from the Bezos Family Foundation to Architecture for Humanity's relief efforts. Simultaneously, OshKosh B’Gosh is in the middle of a Cranes For Kids campaign that will donate an article of clothing to Japanese children for each crane sent into the company, or uploaded to their Facebook page. Want to learn how to make the beautiful paper creations? Follow Modern Parents Messy Kids' tutorial above, or go to their site for detailed photo directions. Now get folding!
