Your Wish Can Rebuild a Life
One special wish. In Japanese folklore, that’s what someone is granted when they fold 1,000 origami paper cranes. It’s an extraordinary undertaking, but one that creates a permanent bond with the recipients of that wish. It’s a bond that’s full of good fortune, full of friendship and full of hope.
The Japanese have a word for this kind of bond. They call it kizuna [key-zoo-nah]. Our friends in Japan still need support after the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011. That’s why our Kizuna Cranes project, in partnership with GlobalGiving, will help lend long-term financial support, friendship and hope as those affected in northeastern Japan rebuild their lives.
