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.

Hi Cranes for Cancer followers, I am overwhelmingly grateful for all the cranes that have been pouring in! They're going to wonderful homes. This batch comes from Kevin. Kevin is a logistics manager, and he has really helped provide assistance with how the cranes should be shipped. He has informed me that I should tell everyone to ship cranes with wings still folded in. This will mean less volume and less cost for everyone. We can unfold them here on our end. Thanks so much Kevin!!!!
