HELP US MAKE MASKS
Sending hope and healing to all,
---Karen and Julie
There is an old Japanese tradition that 1,000 origami paper cranes will bring good luck. Cranes for Cancer's mission is to provide boxes of 1,000 cranes to cancer patients. The 1000 cranes bring hope and uplift spirits. We've been doing this for many years, but we need help in making cranes.
AND, if you know of a person who is in need of 1,000 origami paper cranes, please send an e-mail with a name and mailing address, and we will send your dear friend or family member 1,000 paper cranes of hope and healing.
DONATE: There is no charge or any fees, although we now accept donations through PayPal at email@example.com. Thank You!

“Choose Happy” are the latest uplifting cranes (as a tribute to a special dog, Mindy) from our friends at the Grace Episcopal Church in Connecticut. We are grateful for their latest donation of 800 cranes which includes many favorite paper designs, unique flower-back cranes, foils, ribbons and messages of hope. Thank you so much for your continued support!

Thank you Salesforce Japan!! We received a fourth donation from our friends at Salesforce Japan in Tokyo, with 75 individuals expertly creating and labeling a separate bag; for a total of over 2800 cranes! Among these, we found some unusual, special cranes: “clear” (cellophane) paper cranes, and two-headed cranes. We are so impressed and grateful for each and every caring contribution!
