Thanks to the Evans Family for 1,000 of these amazing cranes!
There is an old Japanese tradition that 1,000 origami paper cranes will bring good luck. Cranes for Cancer's mission is to provide baskets or vases of 1,000 cranes to cancer patients. The 1000 cranes bring hope and uplift spirits. We've been doing this for about 18 years, but we NEED HELP! You can help by: 1) Donating money for supplies 2) Donating origami paper 3) FOLDING CRANES.
If you know of a person who is in need of 1,000 origami paper cranes, please send an e-mail and we will send your dear friend or family member 1,000 paper cranes of hope and healing.

We received these cranes from the Rutgers University Dance Marathon’s event to help kids with cancer. Thank you students for your generosity and service, and to Nicole and Julia from the Rutgers University Programming Association for organizing this effort!

Our heartfelt thanks to Raquel from the Dominican Republic who sent these in honor of her friend, Gina, who has returned to the U.S. for treatment. Raquel shared our Cranes for Cancer endeavor with Gina’s friends who also have donated cranes---paying it forward for the cranes Gina received from our community.
