'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.

Susan's Cranes

Jill did a super job of making a ton of cranes for her friend Susan. Jill, would you like to add some more details? Anyway, I sent about 400 from me and my sister. I hope they were of help. Susan, we are sending you warm thoughts.

Hi Julie,
I'm wondering if this blog is still active, as I have cranes to donate.

I tried sending an email, but it failed.
