What is the 1,000 Cranes Project?
Join us in creating 1,000 cranes! Origami cranes that are folded into a group of 1,000 are known as a Senbazuru. The individual cranes are often strung along a string so they can be hung from the ceiling. The cranes are typically made from many different colors and patterns of paper, so they are a bright and cheerful decoration. Our 1,000 cranes will be displayed at our outreach offices in Washington, Phillipsburg, and Flemington to symbolize love, hope, and peace. If you are interested in supporting this project, please reach out to our Community Engagement and Fund Development Coordinator, Evan Austin.
How You Can Help:
1). Find a piece of paper. You can choose any type of paper (origami paper, printer paper, newspaper, etc.) and any color. Please make sure the paper is, or is cut into, a perfect square shape.
2) Write a message of hope (or an inspirational quote), your name, and where you're from on the piece of paper. OPTIONAL: Fold your message into a crane. A video tutorial can be found here.
3) Mail the piece of paper with your message of hope (or folded crane) to:
