Cranes for Kids: Giving Hope to the Children of Japan

In Japanese culture, cranes are a powerful symbol of health and well-wishes. In fact, the Japanese people believe that anyone who makes 1,000 origami cranes will have a wish granted. While we can’t grant every wish, we can make a difference. Students in the Lincoln Technology Club made 95 PAPER CRANES to send to the Oshkosh B'Gosh company. The company in turn will be donating a NEW article of clothing to the earthquake and tsunami survivors for every paper crane they receive- that's 95 pieces of clothing from the Lincoln Tech Club!
