1000 Paper Cranes for Boston

"Inspired by the story "Thousand Paper Cranes" and the monument that is showered with paper cranes every year. The monument is a symbol for innocent victims of war, and in our case, the innocent victims of terrorism."

This project was made by citizens in Boston to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings and show our support for those affected. There will be an central event to make and collect the symbolic cranes at Anime Boston (May 24-26). 

There will also be a collection of cranes at Anime Central (May 17-19) in Chicago the weekend before Anime Boston (which I will be coordinating). I will send them over to Boston right after the convention so they can add them to the project the following weekend!

If you would like to show your support and participate but you don’t live near Boston or Chicago, you can personally mail them to an organizer in Boston. There is an address you can send them to on the description of the Boston page. Do keep in mind that you will have to pay for shipping yourself, though.

Any and all origami is welcome (such as wishing stars) but please do keep them small (use you hand as a reference) so they fit in with the other origami!
