1000 Cranes for Japan

I was invited by a wonderful photographer to contribute to a good cause for Japan. Here are more details about the group.

"The crane is a mystical, holy creature in Japan - it 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.

Strings of 1000 paper cranes are often sent to places where tragedy has struck as a symbol of hope & healing. Sometimes groups will fold 1000 cranes for an ailing friend in hopes of speeding their recovery.

Whether you believe in the power of the crane, or simply in the gentle act of beauty and kindness, there is something uplifting about this tradition."

These words and this project were inspired by damiec. Help us reach 1000 cranes and join the group here. My folding skills may not be the best, but I certainly know how to pray.

I have never made one and this seems like as good a time as any to learn.
