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!
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.

Our sincere thanks to the amazing patrons and staff of the Agnes Robinson Waterloo Public Library in Waterloo, Nebraska for these cranes (neatly folded and bagged) created throughout October in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month---and continuing through November to reach 1,000!
A very big thank you to Susan of Lake Wales, FL who encouraged her colleagues at HCS Learning & Performance, Humana Insurance, in various cities to participate in a group effort to serve others through the Cranes for Cancer project (see other postings below).
