For the sixth year in a row, Cranes for Cancer has been the honored recipient of the work of those participating in the Kearney Public Library (Nebraska) summer reading program, organized by their amazing librarian, Rita. Adding to their efforts are two friends from Farmers & Merchants Bank,who contributed 1100 cranes. This year we received a total of 4,656 cranes! WOW!
Thank you so much!!!!
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.
