So yesterday this mysterious big box showed up. My assistant made fun of me - that I order too many things online. But this box was too light to be a pair of shoes or new books. I opened it up, and there were these gorgeously made cranes!

They are a donation from the Swifts from Michigan. They made them for their wedding and donated them to us for Cranes for Cancer!

Thank you Swifts! We are in need of cranes for so many people and they really help out. Your cranes are going to our dear friend Alexis.
