Thank you Wallflower - any cranes you could make would be greatly appreciated! Also any prayer requests you might have can be made here as well.

I made this paper crane with hope for the safety of every survivor affected by the tsunamis and earthquakes that occurred. This also is to help those who fell victim to the disasters rest in peace.

The particular person I had in mind while making this was my brother’s step-mother. Her name is Hanako and she is Japanese. She lives in America, but her family lives in Japan, and she hasn’t been able to contact them since the disasters struck Japan.

Let’s hope and pray that her family, along with everyone else affected or missing, is safe.
Please. And thank you. XD I started the thread for my friend, Lyn. She still hasn't heard from most of her family. The thread is snowballing (well, for an autistic hermit, it looks pretty good), but I think I'll keep it going until she, or anyone with a request, has found everybody.
I'll pray for all of your posts, if they want me to.

Very pretty cranes everyone. My attempts are in the trash can. I still like the idea, but there will be no cranes from me. Mine look like deformed Quasimodo cranes. xp I ended up swearing like a sailor, ripping them up and tossing them in the garbage.

It seems as soon as people heard about the tsunami they took action in trying to help them. ;u; It makes me happy you're all sooo sweet! God bless y'all! ;D

I think this is a very neat way of showing support.

I may try to make a few cranes myself at some point. As of right now I do have a stars without a jar. But if I find one for them.. Can I offer a jar of wishes to go along with my cranes?

OMG I'll get on this C: Also... I think it would be pretty neat if we took the pictures and put them into a collage, patchwork quilt, etc. I'd love to help do anything for this thread C:

Don't worry, any cranes are wonderful, even if they aren't perfect <3

MarmeeXnoir

I'd love for you to add a jar of wishes - that would be beautiful. Thank you ^^

Silly Little Sushi

That's a really good idea! Maybe after I get more pictures I'll work on that! If you want to help: it would help a lot if you could pop in every once in a while and make sure the thread is alive and happy - I would be extremely grateful ^^


Thank you to everyone for the encouraging posts. I'm so glad that people this this idea is worthwhile. I'm looking forward to your cranes! heart

Hey, someone PMed me with a link to this, and I think you'd guys would find it interesting....

Instead of just putting pictures of the cranes here, here's another thing you can do with them as well:

The 1,000 Paper Cranes for Japan Project- they're collecting paper cranes to send to Japan. This actually makes me want to try the damned cranes again...
