Origami Cranes

On December 14, a gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, CT. He murdered 20 children and 6 adults before taking his own life. In the wake of this senseless tragedy, Origami Salami is organizing a peace fold crane project. Origami cranes are symbols of peace, love, and hope. By joining together to fold cranes for those affected by the shooting, we can offer a show of our support.

The idea for the peace crane project came from Sebastian Tabares, President of Origami Salami Epsilon in Denver, CO. People of all ages are welcome to participate. Many schools and community groups are joining in the project, but you are free to send cranes on your own if you desire.

Calista Frederick-Jaskiewicz, Origami Salami CEO, asks that you send a photo of your finished cranes to FoldingforGood@gmail.com. Photos will be posted on the Origami Salami Facebook page. (The photo accompanying this post shows some of the cranes that I have folded for this project.)

Please label your cranes with your name and where you are from, then mail them to:
Origami Salami
P.O. Box 1324
Wexford, PA
USA 15090-1324

The cranes will be mailed sometime after January 1, in order to provide plenty of opportunity for all interested parties to participate.

If you do not already know how to fold an origami crane, please review our Origami Crane Instructions tutorial.

My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all
of your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a number of
the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome weblog!
